The UEFA Europa League is back in action with another set of matches this week as Rennes lock horns with Stefano Pioli’s AC Milan side in an important clash at the Roazhon Park on Thursday.
Rennes (also known as Stade Reinnais FC, Stade Rennais or STADE RENNAIS FC) and AC Milan (commonly referred to as Milan) meet again 6 days after the 1/16 Final match which AC Milan won 3-0. Rennes are approaching this clash after a victory over Clermont in Ligue 1 last Sunday, however, one part of Rennes has trailed behind in terms of reliability—defence: they have been conceding goals for 3 consecutive home matches now.
AC Milan, on the other hand, are preparing for the match after a loss against Monza in Serie A last Monday. They’re going to need to sort out the problems in the back first to improve the results as they have been conceding goals for 3 consecutive away matches now.
Rennes have won Clermont in their previous match while AC Milan have lost to Monza in their previous match. Overall, Rennes have won 12 of their last 20 matches, losing 6 and drawing 2, while AC Milan have won 11 of their last 20 matches, losing 5 and drawing 4.
