      Rennes vs CFR Cluj Predictions

      Rennes lost 3-2 away at Monaco on Sunday and have now failed to win any of their last nine matches in all competitions, while Cluj secured a comfortable 2-0 home victory against Universitatea Craiova and head into Thursday’s match as the form favourites.

      All of the stats suggest that Cluj are in with a very good chance of taking home at least a point on Thursday, possibly all three, and we’ve backed the visitors with a double chance bet and for the scoreline to end 1-1.

      These two teams have never met before and neither head into the match in the best of form but it’s Rennes that are really struggling for results. The hosts are without a win in any of their last nine matches and have lost their last three games on the run, while Cluj have only lost three of their last six matches, so you can see why we fancy the visitors to leave France with at least a point on Thursday night.

      The performances of both clubs during the last month or so only adds weight to our prediction of a 1-1 draw this Thursday, as under 2.5 goals were produced in four of Rennes’ and three of Cluj’s last six matches, while both teams scored in four of hosts’ last six games. Cluj have scored in four of their last five matches and go up against a Rennes side that are without a win in Group E after two games.

      Cluj have managed to keep two clean sheets in their last four attempts but each of those arrived in their own backyard and we can’t see the visitors stopping Rennes from scoring at least one goal on Thursday. The hosts have only failed to score in two of their last six matches and only one of those matches were at home, which is why we’ve backed a score draw in this Europa League tie.

      We’re confident that a double chance bet on the visitors will payout on Thursday night and have predicted a final scoreline of 1-1. Cluj arrive as the form favourites but have only won two of their last six matches, while their hosts have failed to secure a single victory in any of their last nine competitive matches, which is why we feel a draw is the most likely result but wouldn’t be surprised if Cluj pinched all three points.
