There have been cases of positive Covid-19 tests at Tottenham Hotspur but it is highly unlikely their home match against Rennes in the Europa Conference League will be called off. Tottenham head to the Group G game placed second on seven points, while Rennes have 11 at the top. Spurs can’t finish top, but if they drop points, they may finish third. They registered their second straight win in the run up to this game, beating Norwich 3-0 and they will be shifting gears to Europe, for the French side. Spurs have three clean sheets and just one loss in five. That loss, was against Mura in their last game in this competition and that’s how they missed the top spot. Spurs have scored two or more in three of the last four matches and have failed to score completely. Three of their last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals.
Rennes are coming from a huge win; they thumped Saint-Etienne 5-0 away from home in Ligue 1 ahead of this game, which for them is just a formality. They’ve already secured top spot but with three wins and just one loss in five, they’ll still be hard to crack. Rennes have scored in each of their last five matches and in four of them, they’ve managed two or more goals. The French side’s three of the last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals and they have clean sheets in three of those five matches. These two sides drew 2-2 in the first meeting in France, and Rennes have now scored two or more in four of the five matches so far in this competition.
Rennes have scored two or more goals in four of their last five matches and three of their last five games have produced over 2.5 goals. Spurs are also coming here on the back of some high scoring matches and a good run at home. With Spurs seeking a win here, we foresee another high scoring game, as both sides are coming from very good scoring runs. Go for over 2.5 goals.
