Milan vs Rennes prediction and betting tips on February 12, 2024
In the Europa League, which also resumes this week, the lineup of participants is not as prestigious as in the Champions League. However, after the group stage, some giants, including Milan, dropped into the less esteemed tournament. Milan will host Rennes at the San Siro. Will Stefano Pioli's team encounter any problems? A prediction for this match on February 15, 2024, is available to the readers of the website.
Milan will solely focus on this tournament towards the end of the season
The Rossoneri couldn't replicate their previous Champions League performance in this edition. While they landed in a remarkably tough group and even matched PSG's performance with 8 points each, additional tiebreakers sent the 2023 semi-finalist packing from the tournament. They slipped to the third spot, thus entering the Europa League, where they are considered favorites. With no incentive to excel domestically – they're out of the cup after losing to Atalanta at home and lagging behind Juventus and Inter in Serie A – Milan is looking to make their mark in Europe.
Rennes hasn't had the best year so far
The Bretons aren't among the flagships of French football, but they achieved their best result, a third-place finish in Ligue 1, in 2020. The season before, they won the cup, their first in half a century. Moreover, in the 2022/2023 season, they secured the fourth position in the league, which was also a significant achievement. However, they are struggling to replicate such success now. Yet, they compensated with decent performances in other tournaments. Rennes remains contenders for the cup, having thrashed Sochaux away in the previous round. Only due to a home defeat to Villarreal in the final group match did they surrender the top spot to the Spaniards. As a consequence, they now face a seasoned Serie A opponent.
This will be the first time these Frenchmen visit the San Siro.
