Defeated (2-1) in the first leg last week, Stade Rennais is preparing to host Shakhtar Donetsk this Thursday to reverse the trend and win a ticket for the knockout stages of the Europa League. A duel to follow on RMC Sport and W9.
Victim of an away course error, Stade Rennais will have no choice this Thursday. To hope to continue its adventure in C3, the Breton club will have to win the return match at all costs. And even if the Ukrainians are favorites for the moment, the Rouge et Noir, who reassured themselves this weekend against Clermont (2-0 victory), have the weapons to turn the tide.
Stade Rennais will be pushed by its public
For the occasion, Roazhon Park should obviously be full to encourage his team during this great European evening. It will not take less for Arnaud Kalimuendo and his partners who will be keen to correct their faux pas committed on the way to Poland. Other encouraging news, fans who have not managed to find a place, will be able to follow the match for free on W9 from 9 p.m.
