class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>With neither team at full strength, Al Hain-Cole isn't expecting much action when Genesio's men welcome Spurs to Roazhon Park in the Conference League
Tottenham will be determined to bounce back from their disappointing defeat against Crystal Palace when they travel to Roazhon Park to take on Rennes in Thursday’s Europa Conference League clash.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men saw their perfect Premier League start brought to a thudding halt at Selhurst Park on Saturday, going down 3-0 against their London rivals.
Rennes vs Tottenham latest odds
Nevertheless, Spurs are 7/5 (2.40) favourites with bet365 to put that behind them by coming out on top in their opening Group G clash.
Rennes come into this match on the back of two successive Ligue 1 defeats but are available at 17/10 (2.70) to pull off a big win against their Premier League guests.
The visitors are yet to draw any of their six matches in all competitions this season, but there are odds of 23/10 (3.30) available on them playing out a stalemate in this one.

Rennes vs Tottenham team news
Martin Terrier is unlikely to feature after coming off injured in Sunday’s defeat against Reims, with Alfred Gomis, Birger Meling, Lovro Majer and Jeremy Doku also unavailable.
Eric Dier, Ryan Sessegnon, Steven Bergwijn and Son Heung-min are all injured, while Davinson Sanchez, Cristian Romero and Giovani Lo Celso remain unavailable due to quarantine regulations.
Rennes vs Tottenham preview
With big games against Marseille and Chelsea coming up in their respective league calendars at the weekend, it seems fair to predict that neither team will go into this game at full strength – particularly when you consider both injury lists.
Having limped to a 1-0 defeat away to Pacos Ferreira in the first leg of their Europa Conference League play-off without the likes of Son and Harry Kane, a similarly under-strength Spurs side are likely to look less than inspired once again in Brittany.
Similarly, Bruno Genesio’s injury-hit attack does not inspire much confidence after drawing a blank in their last two games, meaning goalmouth action could be rather limited at both ends of the pitch.
Rennes vs Tottenham tips & predictions
All in all, odds of 10/11 (1.91) could prove strong value on a tepid Europa Conference clash seeing no more than one of Rennes or Spurs on target.
