Rennes take on the visitors Fenerbahce in the round 2 match of UEFA Europa League group stage. The match will be played on Thursday, September 15th at Roazhon Park (Rennes).
Rennes have built a decent reputation in French football in recent years. The Red-Blacks reminded of themselves in 2019 by winning the national cup. And the next season, they managed to give the maximum result in Ligue 1, having issued “bronze” medals, after which they even played in the Champions League. The last draw was worse, but also quite good: the final 4th position. Now the wards of Bruno Genesio, having not played the first rounds in the best way, were able to gradually improve. They also managed to put the squeeze on AEK in the 1st round of the Europa League. The hosts in Larnaca were able to respond quite quickly to Teate's goal, but the defense of the Cypriots did not prevent a last attack and Assignon secured final 2-1 in the 94th minute.

Fenerbahce gradually got back into shape. The Canaries got off to a bad start this summer. Then they were not lucky with the moment of the meeting with Dynamo Kyiv. And Jorge Jesus had just arrived at that moment in Istanbul, and the newcomers were just learning to interact with the former leaders in the restructuring of the scheme by the Portuguese. The result was a farewell to the Champions League after the first round of qualification. But in September, it turned out to take revenge on the “blue and white”, already in the Europa League. True, again, having opened an account last Thursday and having a noticeable advantage, the Turks conceded in response after a classy blow by Tsygankov. Fortunately, before the final whistle, they managed to put the squeeze on Mircea Lucescu's wards. The irony is that the decisive goal was scored by 1 more, and arguably the most stellar newcomer, Michy Batshuayi.
Rennes is still more regarded as the modest team in French football. And not so often performs in the international arena. Not surprisingly, this will be his first meeting with Fenerbahce.Rennes is set to win at home, but Fenerbahce has already gained momentum. The duel of the group favorites should be spectacular - we are waiting for the "over 2.5 goals".
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 scored goals.
