Arsenal and Rennes play at the Emirates Stadium in a Europa League second round match (Round of 16) after Rennes' 3-1 home win in the first leg. It is necessary to analyze with special attention the house / off condition, as Arsenal presents different results at home and abroad. Despite the 2-goal deficit from the first leg, the home team has at least the advantage of scoring 1 goal away in that game. This is a stronger team when you play in your stadium, because in the last 30 games you have 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses as a visitor; against 11 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in his stadium. In the last game he played for the Barclays Premier League, he beat Manchester United at home (2-0). In the last 4 home games for the Europa League, Arsenal have won 3 and 1 draw. In this competition, you do not lose in your stadium there are 4 matches. His attack has scored regularly as he has scored goals in 7 of the last 9 games in this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home games, as 62 of the last 70 matches they played ended with over 1.5 goals. This is a team that scores often first: it opened the scoring in 7 of its last 9 games by the Europa League, of those 7 reached the interval in advantage in 5 and managed to maintain the advantage until the end of the 90 'in 6. Arsenal enter for this motivated game after having won a 2-0 win at the Manchester United reception: the team goals were scored by Xhaka and Aubameyang. We remember that the English lost the first match against Rennes 3-1. In this second game, we believe that coach Unai Emery will return to opt for the 3-5-2, where the two responsible for leading danger are Lacazette and Aubameyang: the second mentioned is the best Arsenal finisher in the official competitions with 20 goals scored. The coach will not be able to count on Sokratis, suspended, besides Bellerin, Holding and Welbeck, these with physical problems.
The visiting team has a 2-goal advantage in this second-leg game but has conceded 1 home goal in the first leg. This is a team that maintains the income when it plays outside its stadium, because in the last 30 games it registers 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses as a visitor; against 10 wins, 4 draws and 1 defeat in his stadium. In the last game he played for Ligue 1, he beat Caen at home (3-1). In the last 4 games as a visitor to the Europa League Rennes has 2 wins and 2 losses. The team has conceded goals in 7 of their last 9 games, so they have not shown great defensive solidity, but their attack has scored regularly, as they managed to achieve in 8 of the last 9 games in this competition. There is a tendency for there to be goals in their away games, as 43 of their last 50 matches have ended with over 1.5 goals. In 9 games in this competition, he suffered the first goal 4 times and only got 1 turn on the scoreboard. Rennes arrives for this match with a 3-1 win at Caen's reception in the French championship. Having won in the first match, the French seek to defend this advantage and guarantee access to the next phase of the Europa League. The visitor usually acts in the tactical system 4-2-3-1, privileging the fast transitions, mainly through the sides. Niang, Sarr and Hunou are the three responsible for taking the danger: the second named athlete is the best finisher of this team with 10 goals scored. The coach Julien Stéphan will not be able to count on Danze, Guitane and Ludovic Baal, all injured.
