Rennes have claimed some notable scalps at Roazhon Park over the past six months and can add Celtic to their list of victims in this Europa League contest.
Julien Stephan’s side beat Arsenal here in the knockout rounds last term and have already upset PSG in Ligue 1 on home turf this season.
That evidence is enough to make 11/10 for the hosts to oblige a solid Rennes vs Celtic prediction.
A Look At Rennes’ Betting Odds
Rennes finished second behind Dynamo Kiev in their group last season, before going on to knock out Real Betis.
A red card for Sokratis Papastathopoulos then helped them gain a 3-1 triumph over the Gunners here, only for Arsenal to win the second leg 3-0 in London.
Stephan’s team were a disappointing 10th in Ligue 1 but qualified for this event courtesy of a memorable Coupe de France success.
Having won 3-2 against Lyon in the semis, Rennes came from 2-0 down to draw with PSG in the decider, before prevailing 6-5 on penalties.
PSG were beaten 2-1 at this venue in France’s top flight midway through last month, with M’Baye Niang and Romain Del Castillo on target.
Senegal striker Niang enjoyed a successful loan spell here last season, before completing a permanent move for €15million, and he looks a real handful up front.
Midfielder Benjamin Bourigeaud is another player to watch out for and we like 17/2 for a 2-1 home win from the Rennes vs Celtic odds.
A Look At Celtic’s Betting Odds
Celtic did well to split strong outfits Red Bull Salzburg and RB Leipzig in a tough group last term, although they did suffer convincing defeats when visiting both of those teams.
Valencia then proved a class apart when prevailing 3-0 on aggregate in the first knockout round and the Hoops will be hoping for a longer run this time.
Neil Lennon was left fuming after a 4-3 loss to CFR Cluj of Romania in Glasgow ended their Champions League involvement, but going deep into this competition would be decent compensation.
AIK Solna were brushed aside 6-1 on aggregate in the play-offs, backing up the view that Celtic have dropped down into far more conducive company.
A strong start to their domestic campaign, including a 2-0 triumph at Rangers, also suggests they will make an impression in a daunting group which features Lazio and old adversaries Cluj.
However, the Hoops have always looked fragile on the road in Europe, so 15/4 for a home win and both teams to score completes our Rennes vs Celtic betting tips.
