Prediction and betting tips
Rennes are in good form now. They have lost only two out of eight matches in the 2022-23 season with only a one-goal difference each. They absolutely dominated in the most recent match and finished it with a 5-0 score in their favor.
Fenerbahce are seventh in the 2022-23 SuperLig which is a terrible result for this team. In the last match of the 2022-23 Europa League, they had a close match against Dynamo Kyiv and were lucky to win it in the last minute of the match. Overall, Fenerbahce's current play is disappointing. They are unlikely to beat Rennes in their next game. They will be able to score a goal, but Rennes will finish this match in their favor. I believe that a 2-1 score may play out in this fixture.
Betting prediction: Correct score – 2-1
Odds: 7.50 (+650 American; 13/2 Fractional)
