Predictions Ask any Arsenal supporter and no doubt they will tell you there has been an improvement under Unai Emery this season. However, one thing that has not changed is the club’s ability to make what appears to be a simple task on paper, into an almighty uphill struggle. The signs were evident in the last sixteen double header against BATE when the Gunners lost the away leg 1-0 only to recover and win at the Emirates 3-0. However, the task facing Arsenal is much tougher now as Rennes boast a 3-1 advantage with the Gunners needing a minimum score line of 2-0 in order to progress. That result in France has made Julien Stéphan’s Rennes side slight favourites with relevant betting sites to progress, but the Gunners still have reason to be confident on home soil. That is because Arsenal has not failed to score two or more goals at home in all but one of their games since the December League Cup loss to Tottenham whilst in their last four games at the Emirates, the Gunners have netted 12 times. They have also only conceded once in those four home games and the clean sheet is a necessity if Arsenal are to qualify. Rennes may have good form at home of late but have won just three of their last eight in all competitions on the road. After a morale boasting win over Manchester United, expect the Gunners to repeat that 2-0 score line and provide yet another Europa League escape. 1×2 Prediction Bet Now With Betway Score Prediction Bet Now With Betway Betting Tips Arsenal to qualify A great bet with popular sportsbooks as Arsenal proved last time against BATE that when they need a result at home, they get it.
