Team News

Rennes
Villarreal
  • Rennes boss Julien Stephan should have a full squad at his disposal.
  • Villarreal will be without as many as six players for Thursday's trip to France.
  • Alfonso Pedraza will sit this one out having picked up his third yellow card of the Europa League campaign.

Prediction

  • First host second in Group F, with the arrangement of the top two spots to play for.
  • Rennes hold a two-point lead over their opponents on Thursday, and so a draw would be enough to seal the group's top spot.
  • The French side have, however, lost three of their last five matches, and were beaten when these sides met in Spain in October.
  • Like their hosts, Villarreal are struggling for form, and haven't won any of their last three matches.
  • The Yellow Submarine were held to a goalless draw against Maccabi Haifa last time out and have failed to score in back-to-back games.
  • This one looks set to be a low-scoring affair, with the home side perhaps more likely to take all three points.
