Arsenal vs Rennes (By: Luke)
Arsenal looked like a favorite away to Rennes last weekend and even took the quick lead, however staying down with a man less in the 41st minute was too much. In the end, despite very competitive they suffered 3:1 defeat and won't have an easy job. As for the Premiership, the side comes from a morale-boosting 2:0 victory at home over Man United.
Rennes stood behind in the scoreline easily against the Gunners, but managed to exploit the momentum well taking an unexpected victory. As for the Ligue 1, they were better than Caen at home with the same result. The side now stands at eight position with just seven less than Europa League placed Marseille.
The English side will miss suspended defender Sokratis (20/0), but also injured defensive Holding (10/0), Bellerin (19/0) and offensive Welbeck (8/1). The guests can't count at midfielder Baal (1/0) and offensive Siebatcheu (15/3).
I expect the French team to appear very defensive in this one and am actually not giving them a lot of chances to survive. The Gunners know that they need to attack from the very first moment and I believe it's something that should pay off to them.
