Rennes vs Villarreal: Top free betting tips

Who will be crowned as group winner? Our Rennes vs Villarreal prediction is for a close game in that the more experienced visitors will edge. 

Rennes and Villarreal already secured the top 2 spots in the group but only the winner of the group avoids an extra knockout round and goes directly into the last 16. As things stand Rennes hold a 2-point lead over Villarreal. This means that the Spaniards can top the standings only if they win in France. They already beat the Terriers in the first meeting between the sides.

​​Correct outomce prediction: Villarreal to win

Our first Rennes vs Villarreal prediction backs the visitors to secure the win they need to top the group. Villarreal are experienced European warriors and they won 6 of their last 9 away games in UEFA competitions (D2 L1). At the same time, Rennes lost 2 of their last 3 home matches. 

Total goals prediction: Odd

With our next Rennes vs Villarreal prediction we venture into the Goal’s Market. We think there will be an odd number of total goals in this match. Rennes saw 4 of their 5 matches in the group stage so far finish with an odd amount of goals in them. Also, 4 of Villarreal’s last 6 games had an odd number of goals in them. 

​​Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Villarreal

Our final Union SG vs Villarreal prediction is traditionally the correct score. We back the visitors to secure a narrow 2-1 win. Villarreal saw their last 2 wins on the road produce exactly that scoreline. Also, 2 of the last 5 defeats suffered by Rennes were 1-2 results.

The flying distance between Villarreal and Rennes is only 613 miles (986km). This means that in less than 2 hours a passenger will be touching down in Brittany and planning their way towards the stadium.
