Rennes and Milan: Previous Games 

Since the 2020–21 UEFA Europa League (2), AC Milan has not had a European campaign in which they won more than one away game. Milan is set to win back-to-back away games in central European competitions for the first time since October 2009, after their 2-1 success against Newcastle at St. James’ Park on MD6 of the UEFA Champions League group stage.

Against three separate opponents (Lazio, Juventus, and Udinese), Rennes has gone undefeated in all European competitions while playing at home against Italian clubs (W1 D2).

Probable Rennes Lineup

Mandanda; G. Doué, Omari, Theatre, Truffert; Bourigeaud, Matusiwa, Santamaria, D. Doué; Kalimuendo, Terrier

Probable Milan Lineup

Maignan; Florenzi, Kjaer, Gabbia, Theo Hernandez; Musah, Reijnders; Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Leao; 

Betting tips: Rennes x Milan

Check out our predictions of the day for Rennes vs. Milan

Prediction 1: Rennes x Milan / Milan to win

Given Milan’s recent dominance at the San Siro and Rennes’s dismal scoring record on the road, it seems doubtful that the French side can upset the defending champions. However, Rennes enters the match on a five-game winning run.

This has led to a decline in their goal-scoring performance away from home, as they have only scored nine goals in their previous ten league encounters.

With only two Europa League victories—against Maccabi Haifa and Panathinaikos—neither of which can compete with Milan, this does increase things somewhat.

The Rossoneri have won their past nine games in a row and are riding a seven-game winning run at home.

Considering Milan has won nine of their twelve home games, Rennes may have to rethink their strategy after this round.

The loss of Champions League football would be devastating to the San Siro. Therefore, they will be hoping for a strong response from their team.

Prediction 2: Rennes x  Milan / Over 2.5 goals

You might say Rennes are riding high in their participation in Europa League home matches with over 2.5 goals. In 35 of their last 36 games, the net has bulged at least once. Plus, AC Milan seldom engages in tedious battles since only one of their past twenty matches at this level ended without a goal.

Prediction 3: Rennes x Milan /  Martin Terrier to score

The odds on Milan winning this match are high, but Rennes’ star winger Martin Terrier will be fighting to alter the story—perhaps unsuccessfully.

As the leading member of Rennes’ strikeforce, Terrier will not be short of shots, but it is not worth betting on them to score, much less on Terrier to achieve.

At 2.2 shots per game on average, he gives his team plenty of chances to score, but it’s essential to remember that they saved, missed, or even blocked. We believe he will be able to achieve in this game.
