In the last five games that Rennes played at home, for more than one competition, all of them scored more than 1.5 goals. We believe that in this match the Rennes will make a more offensive game, in which they can score their goals and also suffer.

We believe that in this match Astana, to play at home and need victory, will have an offensive proposal and will make another offensive game, with several goals.
