Sevilla hosts Rennes in round 2 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, October 28th at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán (Sevilla)
Sevilla started its way in the Champions League with an away match against Chelsea, which will be its main rival in the fight for the first line. The game in London was equal. Both the Spanish and the English clubs did not create too many attempts, although each team had chances to score. However, no one was able to convert them, and the match ended in a 0:0 draw. From a strategic point of view, this was an acceptable result for Sevilla. Now the main thing for the Red-Whites is to achieve maximum against the relative outsiders Rennes and Krasnodar, which will guarantee them the promotion to the 1/8 finals of the UEFA Champions League.

In general, Rennes is not among the contenders for the Champions League playoffs. Rather, it will fight for the third position with Russian Krasnodar since it will give the right to get into the Europa League playoffs. However, nothing is clear so far. Perhaps the French will be able to compete for the second line in the group. Much depends on the upcoming match. Rennes had already made one mistake. In the first round, the French could not beat Krasnodar at home, although they clearly had an advantage in that game. However, they managed to score only in the 56th minute of the meeting, and then from the penalty spot. After three minutes, the Bulls managed to win back. The fans did not see more goals scored, and the meeting ended in a 1: 1 draw.
Bookmakers have little faith in the possibility of Rennes' success in this game, and they have set the coefficients with an obvious bias towards Sevilla. Indeed, the Spanish club has a much higher level and traditionally shows perfect results at home. Yes, Sevilla is not in the best shape, but the team had a frankly difficult calendar, and the French club's shape is even worse. We think the hosts will manage to earn their first three points.
Prediction for the match: Sevilla to win
