Vitesse to Win
Despite claiming three wins in their last five competitive outings, Vitesse are underdogs as they host Ligue 1 outfit, Rennes. Bruno Génésio's men held their own in a 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur and will want to have a three-point reward for their trip. However, we believe the Vites should come out as the victors in this Europa League engagement given Rennes away record. They have only won once in five away fixtures and it does not inspire confidence in their abilities. Vitesse should make their home advantage count and claim the bragging rights in their first-ever competitive encounter.
Total Goals: Under 2.5
Both Vitesse and Rennes are struggling in their respective domestic competitions and this stems from their profligacy in front of the goal. They have seen less than three goals in three of their last four fixtures, and this pattern will continue as they face-off at the GelreDome.
Both Teams to Score: No
Thomas Letsch's charges were calculated in their approach against Mura, shutting out their rivals whilst securing the three points on offer with a strike on either side of the break. With just three goals in their last three outings, Letsch will be wary of his side's ability to outscore their rivals. They will be looking to employ a similar tactic against Rennes, who had been shut out by Angers and Marseille in successive away fixtures before Gaetan Laborde's goal against Bordeaux. Given their respective profligacy, we expect a low scoring affair dominated by a clean sheet.
Vitesse vs Rennes: Team News and Match Preview
Vitesse finished fourth in the Eredivisie last campaign but have found the going tough in the current iteration of Dutch top-flight football. This has not crept into their performances on the continent, where they have dispatched teams better than them to stake their claim. Dundalk and Anderlecht were knocked out while Mura suffered at their hands in the opening round of group stages. As they host Rennes, the form of their strikeforce will come under question especially Nikolai Frederiksen, who is leading their ranks as a 21-year-old.
Bruno Génésio led Rennes to a sixth-place finish in Ligue 1 and like Vitesse has found it hard to replicate their past success in the 2021/22 campaign. They ended a four-match winless streak with a 6-0 thrashing of Clermont but returned to being forgettable with a 1-1 draw with Bordeaux. The trip to Group G leaders, Vitesse, has the potential to make or break their Europa Conference League campaign, and they will want a positive result at the hosts' expense. All eyes will be on Gaetan Laborde, who has scored six goals in all competitions for Rennes.
