Rennes welcome Rosenborg to Roazhon Park for the first leg of their UEFA Europa Conference League playoff. Rosenborg have impressed in the competition but Rennes are an upgrade in quality of opposition and should have the edge at home.

Rennes were not involved in the previous rounds of the competition having drawn a bye into the playoffs. They head into Thursday’s clash off the back of a 1-1 draw at Brest with Serhou Guirassy getting their goal.

Manager Bruno Genesio’s men have drawn their opening two matches in Ligue 1. They remain solid at home and are unbeaten in their last six competitive matches at Roazhon Park, claiming four wins in that run.

Rennes favour an attacking style of play which often leaves them exposed at the back. They have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven matches across all competitions.

Rosenborg outclassed Domzale in the previous round as they did the double over the Slovenians to progress to the playoffs. They triumphed 3-1 in Norway before traveling to Slovenia for a 2-1 victory.

The Norwegians have been producing fine displays in all competitions this season and have maintained a 100% record in the UEFA Conference League. They have faced teams from Iceland and Slovenia and are set for their first real test against Rennes.

Despite their recent good form, Rosenborg have shown some defensive vulnerability which can be exploited by Rennes. Age Hareide's men have conceded in each of their last five matches across all competitions.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have Rennes as favourites with a home win priced at 13/25 by Unibet. The same firm is offering 8/1 for a Rosenborg victory while a draw is set at odds of 3/1 by BoyleSport.

Given Rennes' record at Roazhon Park, I am tempted to lean towards a home win here.

Head to head

This will be the first ever meeting between Rennes and Rosenborg.

Players to watch

Striker Serhou Guirassy should lead the line for Rennes and was on target last time out in Ligue 1. Rennes have scored in each of their last 16 matches across all competitions and Guirassy can ensure that run continues on Thursday at 1/11 with Vbet.

Rosenborg have scored in all their matches in the UEFA Conference League with Dino Islamovic among the goals. With the forward likely to feature in attack on Thursday, the Norwegians are likely to once again get on the score sheet at 8/13 with Vbet.

Anything else catch the eye?

Rennes and Rosenborg have conceded in their last two matches and both teams could be backed to score at 20/21 with MansionBet. There have been over 2.5 goals in Rosenborg’s last six matches and a similar outcome is valued at 20/23 with betfair.

Rennes could be tipped to earn a win and over 2.5 goals at 7/5 with bet365. They are also likely to score in both halves at 6/4 with bet365.
