Arsenal faces Rennes
Arsenal faces Rennes in a second leg from the Europa League 1/8-finals at the Emirates Stadium in London. The Gunners have a really tough task after a 1-3 loss on French soil in the first leg. Let’s discuss this game in our vip soccer bets for today.
Everything went wrong for Arsenal at the Roazhon Park in Rennes. The game started in a terrific way for the Gunners, because Alex Iwobi opened the score after just 3 minutes of time. But after Sokratis’ red card in the 41th minute, Arsenal lost themselves on the pitch.
Benjamin Bourigeaud equalised for Rennes just one minute after Sokratis’ red card. In the 65th minute Arsenal once again didn’t have luck, because Nacho Monreal scored himself an own goal. Their third hit Rennes did two minutes before the end of the game, when Ismalia Sarr put the ball in Petr Cech’s net and gave the French team some solid advantage before the second leg.
What Arsenal’s manager Unai Emery must do now is come with a great tactical plan for the second game. The Londoners are aware that a 2-0 win will qualify them for the 1/4-finals, but it’s not as easy as it sounds. Rennes are a good team and they know how to use their chances, just as they showed it in the first game.
Arsenal are aware that it’s not a guarantee that they will win a place in Premier League’s Top 4 this season. Their only ticket to the Champions League could be winning Europa League. They have a manager who did it three times already, so no doubt Emery will try to do it again. But first Arsenal must deal with Rennes.
