Rennes vs. Tottenham Hotspurs Match Analysis and Prediction

After suffering an unexpected defeat in the Premier League last weekend, Tottenham looks to regain their form in the UEFA Conference League this week against Rennes. The match schedules for Thursday at the Roazhon Park, with kickoff at 7:45 pm.

Bruno Genesio’s reign at Rennes did not take off with the expected momentum. Furthermore, the Les Rouge et Noir suffered back-to-back defeats to Angers and Reims. It marks an underwhelming start to Ligue 1.

In addition, Rennes have not won any of their last five Ligue 1 fixtures this season. Their attempts to return to the Champions League or Europa League took a downhill turn. Afterward, Rennes must contend with facing in-form high-scoring Marseille during the weekend.

The Les Rouge eased into the Conference League after a 5-1 aggregate win over Rosenborg in the qualifying round. The side put together an eight-match unbeaten streak before falling to Reims.

On the other hand, Patrick Viera ensured a 100% win record against former rivals Tottenham. Nuno Espirito started the weekend with a South-American controversy involving two players.

A stunning 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace made the White Lillies drop from the top of the table. It was a downturn last season after Spurs got dropped from the Europa League last 16, courtesy of Dinamo Zagreb. The French outfit faced off against two London clubs, including Arsenal and Chelsea.
