Leicester vs Rennes in the Europa Conference League on Mar 10. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Leicester vs Rennes in the Europa Conference League on Mar 10. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Leicester have had some tricky periods this season, but they appear to have turned a corner in the Premier League and will fancy their chances of getting the better of French side Rennes in the Europa Conference League.

Rennes are having a steady season in Ligue 1, sitting in fourth and just four points off a third-placed finish that would take them into the qualification rounds for next season’s Champions League. That said, they don’t travel particularly well, which is something we will touch on shortly.

Leicester are always strong at home and head into this one on the back of consecutive victories over Burnley and Leeds in the Premier League, so manager Brendan Rodgers will be confident of notching up another W.

All the signs point towards a home win for the Foxes, so let’s see how we can squeeze the value out of that expectation with our expert football betting tips.

Leicester to Win

Leicester tend to deliver at the King Power and their only defeat at home in the last ten came in a bizarre game against Spurs that saw them winning 2-1 with a few minutes remaining.

That aside, they’ve been in excellent form, dismantling the likes of Newcastle and Watford, while also beating Liverpool at home during the festive period. More recently, their last two Premier League wins have come with clean sheets to boot.

And while Rennes have a very good home record themselves – the second-best in Ligue 1 in fact – they have a rather average set of away results. It’s just four wins on the road all season in the league, while their 4-2 victory at Montpellier last time out stopped a run of five consecutive defeats on the road.

However, they do tend to find the net away from home, scoring in nine of their last eleven outings, but we’re not quite confident enough in pushing the boat out by upgrading our selection to a win and BTTS double.

So, we’re playing somewhat safe and going for a Leicester win single (bet365), but that still has plenty of value at even-money with the major sports betting sites.

Leicester Form, squad news, opinion

Leicester can be a bit of a tricky team to bet on, thanks in most part to a string of injuries that have stunted their progress this season, as well as some iffy defensive form.

But Jamie Vardy is now back from injury and with the likes of Harvey Barnes and James Maddison playing well, they remain a very dangerous proposition on their day.

European qualification via the Premier League looks unlikely, so surely they will place plenty of emphasis on winning the Europa Conference League to secure passage to the Europa League next season.

Goals will never be a problem for this side, so having now steadied the defensive ship in recent outings, they have all the goods required to run deep in this competition.

But Leicester will have to make do without defensive duo Wesley Fofana and Jonny Evans, who both miss out through injury.

Rennes Form, squad news, opinion

It’s always going to be difficult to make a huge impression in Ligue 1, with PSG almost certain to dominate for years to come.

But 3rd and 6th place finishes in the past couple of years represents steady progress for a Rennes side that have had to make do with mid-table obscurity for much of the past decade.

They’re still very much in the mix for a Champions League place next season but their away form simply has to improve.

Their trip to Leicester comes just a few days before they head to Lyon in a crucial Ligue 1 game as far as next season’s European aspirations are concerned, so it’ll be interesting to see how manage Bruno Genesio juggles the two fixtures.

Genesio has no new injury worries, but the likes of Jeremy Gelin (knee) and Loic Bade (back) remain out.

History

As is often the case in European competitions of this nature, this will be the first time these two have faced each other.

About the Venue

The King Power Stadium is closing in on its 20th birthday and it still has something of a new-look feel about it.

It’s the 20th-largest stadium in England, with a capacity of nearly 32,500, and it’s also hosted two England friendlies, in 2003 and 2018.

Conclusion

With Vardy back in the Leicester mix, the Foxes pack plenty more bite going forward.

And while their defensive frailties are never a million miles away, they’re a good bet to outscore any side remaining in the Europa Conference League, including a Rennes outfit that average barely more than a goal a game in their away games in Ligue 1.
