Rennes vs Tottenham, UEFA Conference League, 16.09.2021
Tottenham travel to France to face Ligue 1 outfit Rennes as they kick off their Europa Conference League Group G campaign this Thursday.
Both teams lost in their respective leagues at the weekend and will both be hoping to use this competition to provide some respite from that.
22Bet registration Bonus offers some really sumptuous prices on this game and we will put the spotlight on them for a couple of our expert predictions in this preview.
Rennes have been sluggish to start this Ligue season. They have won just one of the five games they have played so far, and have lost their last two back-to-back games to Angers and Reims respectively by an identical 2-0 scoreline. A visit to Marseille follows after this Spurs game so they need to get their act lest the wheels start coming off this early into the season.
They now turn their attentional to Europa Conference, which although not glamorous, could still be their real chance to earn some silverware this season.
They failed to make a mark in this same competition last season but looking at the group, they have a realistic chance of qualifying alongside Tottenham into the next phase. Coach Bruno Genesio will draw some inspiration from their 5-1 aggregate win over Norwegian side Rosenborg which earned them this berth in the group stage.
Tottenham had a fairly strong start in the EPL this season with three straight 1-0 wins including one against champions Man City on opening day. They were however brought down to earth at the weekend thanks to a humbling 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace in a chaotic game that saw them reduced to 10 men after Tanganga was given his marching orders.
They are now caught between a rock and a hard place, needing a win here to take control of the group from the get-go while also preparing for a from Chelsea this weekend in what is easily the top billing in this weekend’s EPL schedule.
Tough call for Nuno Espirito Santo but he has to ring some changes in the rotation nevertheless. That notwithstanding, they still have enough quality in the side to get something out of this game.

RENNES VS TOTTENHAM BETTING PREDICTIONS
Tottenham’s winning run was based on a rock-solid defense and clinical finishing which saw them rack up three straight 1-0 victories. The 3-0 loss at the weekend was mostly an anomaly that was occasioned by the red card shown to with more than half an hour to play and they conceded all three goals in that timespan. Rennes have struggled to put the ball in the back of the net with three goals scored in their five Ligue 1 matches thus far. We feel this game has the makings of a low-scoring contest and we are therefore backing Spurs on the double chance with less than 3 total goals to be scored @ a good price of 2.40 as the first of our betting tips today.
This may well be Spurs’ toughest assignment in the group but the weekend date with Chelsea really complicates the equation for them. With some of their key players already out on the treatment table like Son, Rennes will certainly fancy their chances here. We expect a close opening half of the game we are backing the two teams to be level at the break @ 2.09 as our final call with 22Bet.
