No fewer than 24 games are scheduled for Thursday’s UEFA Europa League. There should be an interesting game for every football fan. While there are big games like those between Gladbach and AS Roma, there are also games that probably receive little attention. Quite a game in this category can be called the duel between Rennes and the CFR Cluj!
Rennes vs CFR Cluj Free Soccer Betting Tips
The French from Brittany are in free fall during these weeks and need a home win against the Romanian champion necessarily a complete success. With only one point, the Ligue 1 club ranked in last place in Group E. A defeat would probably mean the early end.
The Eastern Europeans celebrated a home win against Lazio on Matchday 1, but foreigners do not like the Romanians. Accordingly, between Rennes and the CFR Cluj also explain the current odds.
Rennes – Statistics & Current Form
Slowly but surely, Rennes coach Julien Stephan has to fear for his job. The French started with three league victories in the new season. But since the 2-0 win against Racing Strasbourg on 25 August, there has been one setback after another.
Not only in the Europa League (a draw, a defeat) but also in the league, the team from Brittany waits in vain for a victory. Last weekend saw a last-minute defeat at the Stade Louis II against AS Monaco.
As if the late defeat (Wissam Ben Yedder scored in minute 93) was not enough, there were a few hours later, the next bad news to cope. Goalkeeper Romain Salin injured his calf. The 35-year-old veteran Salin is already only substitute goalkeeper for Edouard Mendy, who fails due to a knee injury.
After all, Mendy was able to resume training these days and should probably be fit for the duel against Cluj. Otherwise, the only 16-year-old Pepe Bonet between the posts.
Although Rennes lost with Ismaila Sarr, Tomas Koubek or Ramy Bensabaini important players, the current crisis is quite surprising. The Coupe de France winner certainly has the quality for much more than the rear midfield in French Ligue Une. The yearning for a sense of achievement is great.
For the third time Rennes is in the group stage of the Europa League. After the group out in 2011/12, Rennes overwintered the previous year and failed to later finalist Arsenal London.
Since four international home games, the Stephan-Elf is undefeated. Including qualifying, there was only one defeat in the last 15 international home games. Accordingly, should at least between Rennes and CFR Cluj the prediction for a point win the French have good chances of success.
Expected formation of Rennes:
↪ Mendy – Gnagon, da Silva, Morel – Maouassa, Camavinga, Grenier, Bourigeaud, Traore – Niang, Hunou

CFR Cluj – Statistics & Current Form
Last season, CFR Cluj could celebrate the club’s fifth title win. Despite the success of the club looks back on an extremely turbulent season. Because on the way to winning the title, there were no fewer than four different coaches. Since March of this year Romanian Dan Petrescu is back on the coaching bench of Cluj. Already between June 2017 and June 2018 he held this office.
In his first term, he came to an outstanding point cut of 2.14 points after 37 games. Currently he only holds at 1.71 points after 31 games. Nevertheless, the mood in Master’s camp is satisfactory. Also in the current season Cluj is to be found at the top of the table. After 13 league games are 27 points to book, the lead on the second table Viitorul is only two points.
Before the international break, there was a bitter 1: 3 defeat in the top match against the pursuer. Once again, Cluj was much weaker abroad than at home. Cluj has been waiting for the competition for seven away matches for all competitions. International have suffered a defeat in each of the last five away games.
In the face of statistics, Rennes and CFR Cluj could suggest a 2-0 home win on Thursday. The last four away games of the Romanians in the Europa League ended with this result.
Personal hurts in these weeks, especially the failure of top striker George Tucudean. A few weeks ago, the 28-year-old offensive player was diagnosed with heart problems that forced him to watch.
Expected formation of CFR Cluj:
↪ Arlauskis – Camora, Boli, Burca, Susic – Bordeianu, Djokovic, Aurelio – Deac, Omrani – Rondon
