Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
There will be fireworks when Rennes and Leicester City face each other at Roazhon Park in the Conference League last 16, second leg. Les Rouges et Noirs aim to overcome a two-goal deficit, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Foxes. Rennes did well to crush Lyon (4-2) on the road in the Ligue 1 derby at the weekend, and they are surely capable of matching Leicester City in front of home fans.
The likes of Bade, Gelin, Salin, Sulemana, and Ugochukwu have been struggling with injuries of late. The Foxes, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Arsenal. Brendan Rodgers’ men are eager to defend their two-goal lead in the return leg, but seeing that key attacker Jamie Vardy misses out with injury, home win should be considered. Castagne, Evans, Fofana, and Bertrand are sidelined with injuries as well.
