Villarreal vs Rennes: Top free betting tips
Villareal and Rennes face off against each other in the second group stage game of the UEFA Europa League. The fixture will be held at Estadi de la Ceràmica on Friday, 6th October. Rennes are fresh from their victory over Nantes in Ligue 1 while Yellow Submarine were limited to a draw against Getafe in La Liga.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Villareal has found the back of the net only four times in the last five league and UEL fixtures. But the Yellow Submarine managed to rattle the net nine times in the same number of games at Estadio de la Ceràmica. Nevertheless, the Spanish side also leaked 11 goals in the aforestated period. On the other hand, the Red and Blacks have also rattled the ball into the net eight times in recent four games. Therefore,a total of Over 2.5 Goals will be our first pick for this game.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Villarreal succeeded in finding the back of the net in each of their last five home games. But their defence has not been very sturdy as they give away goals in every game in the same period. On the other hand, the Red and Blacks have also notched goals in three of the previous four fixtures. Rennes also found two clean sheets in that course. However, the Spanish side will be optimistic about creating scoring opportunities after their offensive consistency at Estadi de la Ceràmica. Given these facts we expect a BTTS outcome at the end of this game.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Villarreal
Villareal’s front line has not been great in their recent fixtures. But they have scored multiple goals in three of their last five matches at Estadi de la Ceràmica. On the other hand, Rennes have been unable to score more than once in any of their three road fixtures in Ligue 1 this season. Adding more, the Yellow Submarine have conceded just one goal in two of their previous five fixtures, keeping a clean sheet as well. Based on these numbers, we predict a 2-1 lead for Villarreal before the referee blows the full-time whistle in this game.
Villarreal vs Rennes: Form, recent games, and news
The Yellow Submarine extended their winless sequence in La Liga against Getafe with a goalless draw. Villarreal also witnessed a rough start to their UEL campaign with a 2-0 defeat against Panathinaikos. The team’s preparation for the second round in European competition is hindered with three players being on the injury list.
After concluding five consecutive draws in Ligue 1, Rennes finally managed all three points in the last league fixture against Nantes by a 3-1 lead. The Red and Blacks also found a comfortable lead of 3-0 against Maccabi Haifa in their first group-stage game of the Europa League. Enzo La Fee and Martin Terrier will not be available for the next UEL Challenge due to fitness concerns.
