The match

Tottenham travel to France this week for a clash against Rennes in the UEFA Conference League on Thursday night. Spurs have regularly played European football over the past 15 years and reached the UEFA Europa League round of 16 last season. Rennes were in the UEFA Champions League last season. They went out at the group stage after finishing bottom of a pile that included Krasnodar, Sevilla and eventual winners Chelsea. This meeting is the first to take place between Rennes and Spurs. The away side will be licking their wounds from a heavy defeat they suffered at the hands of Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday. New boss Nuno had made a perfect start to the league season before suffering this blow. While the setback rocked the Spurs, they can take solace from their previous victories, including a 1-0 triumph against champions Manchester City. Rennes are also coming off the back of their second defeat in a row in the league. The French side failed to win four of their five opening matches of this campaign. 

Rennes have won two of their three home European matches against English opposition, a positive record. Spurs can't say the same about their away record when it comes to French foes, failing to win on any of their five trips to the land of croissants and cheese. Worse still, Spurs lost five of their previous ten away games in European competition. We aren't overly confident in a Rennes win, but we anticipate a cagey match between two teams low on confidence. Back under 2.5 goals. 

Key Statistics

  • Tottenham have lost five of their last ten European away games.
  • Rennes won two of their previous three home matches against English opposition.
  • Tottenham failed to win any of their previous five away games versus French clubs.

The bet of our experts

Neither club appears particularly confident coming into this encounter. We foresee the odd goals deciding it. Back under 2.5 goals.
