The Rennes team will challenge the Maccabi Haifa team in a 1e ronde Europa League in Roazhon Park Stadium, Rennes on Thursday, September 21, 2023. For streaming coverage of Rennes vs Maccabi Haifa, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Rennes will host Maccabi Haifa in the first match of Group F of the 2023/24 Europa League on Thursday, 22 September 2023. This match will take place at the Stade de la Route de Lorient, the headquarters of Rennes.
Rennes is one of the strong teams in France who has not lost since the start of the 2023/24 season. However, they have won only one of their last five matches in all competitions. This shows that they have not found the optimal balance between attack and defense.
The only time Rennes didn’t score this season was also the only time they didn’t concede a goal. However, that happened because they played very defensively against Lyon (0-0) with the lowest attack statistics throughout the 2023/24 season.
If Rennes wants to qualify from group F of the Europa League this season, especially when there is a strong Villarreal in the group (only the group winners are certain to qualify for the round of 16, while the runners-up have to play the playoffs), they must dare to attack and win against two weaker opponents in the group (Maccabi Haifa and Panathinaikos). However, they also have to improve their defensive organization so that they don’t concede easily.
On the other hand, Maccabi Haifa is one of the best teams in Israel, having qualified for the group stage of a European competition eight times. This season they played in the group stage of the Europa League after being eliminated in the Champions League playoffs with quite good results: losing only two of the eight matches played (one match with a difference of more than one goal).
Maccabi Haifa is of course inferior to French team Rennes in every way but they are not that “weak” at regional level either. They have several quality players such as striker Nikita Rukavytsya, midfielder Mohammad Abu Fani, and defender Ernest Mabouka.
Looking at the quality and recent form, Rennes are the favorites to win this match but they may not win easily. Maccabi Haifa is a tough team and doesn’t give up easily. They are in second place in the Israeli League standings with 10 points from four matches. They won three times and drew one. They scored 10 goals and conceded four goals.
Meanwhile, Rennes is in third place in the Ligue 1 standings with 13 points from seven matches. They have never lost but have only won three times and drawn four times. They scored 12 goals and conceded nine goals.
