Rennes – Celtic Match Prediction | 19-09-2019 18:05

However, PSG have won this trophy in each of the previous six seasons, scoring 16 times. While we expect Rennes to hit the target, were backing PSG to win and both teams to score. They found the net away to all of the top seven, while they came out of meetings with the top four at home with seven goals to their name. They hit 13 goals in six French Cup games in 2019, so the goals are there. Overall Rennes scored 1.45 goals per game in the league while they failed to score in just 13% of their matches. The cup winners were a thorn in the side of the top teams last year.

PSG have the resources to see off any challenge from a Ligue 1 side, but their Champions League ambitions would be limited with the sale of Neymar. Theres seemingly little option for PSG but to let him return to Catalonia, although they need to agree on a fee first. In the meantime, Tuchel has to inspire a team which has been engulfed by the Neymar drama. The French champions have been a cut above domestically for years, while theres little sign of a serious title contender emerging.

Coach Thomas Tuchel was unsatisfied with their defensive options and opted for bringing a centre-back and a defensive midfielder. Go big or go home seems to be the French sides motto. The talented defender, Abdou Diallo, came from Borussia Dortmund, while Idrissa Gueye completed his transfer from Everton to further strengthen to centre area of the field. This year was no different as theyve spent a total of 80,000,000.

This lad has gone under the radar somewhat due to his fee. Alongside Ewan Id like to see young Luca Connell get the nod. He looks like the heir apparent to Scott Brown and with enough versatility to fill it at full back and left midfield as he develops. For now Id like to see his two footedness put to the best possible use in the middle of the park. Of the three signed to date it wouldnt surprise me if he ended up the match for the big earners. This for me at least is the one I want to see blooded immediately.

Next Fixtures To Kick Off

If you are finding this option appealing, be sure to check some of the new sports betting sites UK which provide the best betting odds for it. In my opinion, the Scottish champions are bound to come out on top. A single goal difference was all it took for them to be here today. They triumphed in the 1st leg and drew in the 2nd. CFR Cluj, universally known as the Railwaymen, have triumphed in 4 of the last 5 matches, with the 5th ending as a stalemate. Anyhow, they will be facing a much stronger side, and I dont expect to see them making an upset. In order to be in the Semi-finals, they got the better of Maccabi Tel Aviv. Furthermore, in them, they scored 12 goals while conceding 4.

As such it wouldnt be a bad thing to see how the Young American handles some pressure on the back foot. At left back Id assume its likely to be Jonny Hayes however the pre-season games showed Andrew Gutman as a force going forward. It would keep Jonny ticking along and see what the future holds in one fell swoop. Again maybe a half about wouldnt be such a bad thing.

Furthermore, in their recent matches, the Railwaymen and the Hoopsaveraged 3.1 and 3.5 goals, respectively. With the help of my fellow Mighty Tips experts, I analysed their recent performances and styles of play. However, that game took place over 6 years ago. Therefore, I based my decision on other factors, rather than blatantly looking at their H2H records. These clubs fought just once in the past. Therefore, I suggest combining the option of a win by the visiting side with over 3.5 goals scored.

Rennes are still toasting their success in the French Cup last year, which lit up a season which saw them finish up in 10th place in the league. Theres no doubt that their biggest moment was seeing off PSG in the French Cup final, following a thrilling 2-2 draw. They also enjoyed Europa League success, pulling off a 3-1 win over Arsenal in the last 16 before going out 4-3 on aggregate to the eventual finalists. That was yet another typically high scoring clash between these two sides.

Celtic will be with one eye on the Champions League qualifier against Sarajevo when they take on Rennes in a friendly at Celtic Park. Seeing that the Hoops are determined to book their place in the elite competition, we are positive that coach Neil Lennon is likely to rest several first-team regulars for the Sarajevo clash. However, it is well known that Celtic are tough to beat at home ground and considering that Celtic Park will be packed, we are positive that the hosts are going to grab something from the warm-up game.

Rennes vs PSG Correct Score Prediction

The champions were meant to be improving at the back, but theyve conceded in all but one of their summer fixtures. The pair have seen both teams score in six of their last seven encounters, including all three meetings last season. We can see more goals ahead in this clash in China, given PSGs pre-season form. Theyve seen both teams score in 12 of their last 14 encounters, while Rennes are certainly capable of causing problems going forward.

Well never know where he is in terms of development unless we throw him in against an opposition that will make him and we think. It may even be the lad could save us a fortune on a centre back. So far we dont really know what we might lose to the Bundesliga giants. Alongside the new fella Id like to see young Liam Morrison given a chance. With a much heralded interest from Bayern Munich, it wouldnt be a bad shout to extend the trust shown in pre-season and give the lad a chance to project his talents onto Celtic Park.
