Celtic v Rennes Betting: Scottish side slight favourites for Group I clash

Celtic's under pressure manager Neil Lennon is in need of a positive result when his side take on Rennes at Celtic Park on Thursday night. The two sides prop up Group I in the Europa League as neither are yet to win a match and we fancy the wait for victory could go on, with the draw looking a decent punt at 9/4 in the betting with Boylesports.

The Scottish side are third in the group on goal different but are on a dismal run of form after winning just three of their last eight matches in all competitions. It is a run that has increased the pressure on Lennon as his side languish in third place in the SPL - 12 points behind league leaders Rangers.

They are however unbeaten in their last five European home matches and managed to earn a 1-1 draw against Rennes in France two weeks ago. Celtic are fortunate to be in the competition after they took the place of FC Sion, who were eliminated due to transfer irregularities, and now is the time for them to take their chances in the tournament, with Boyles making them marginal favourites to win this match at 5/4.

Lennon must do without Emilio Izaguirre, Scott Brown and Kris Commons, but Anthony Stokes has been one bright spark. Stokes has scored three goals in his last five appearances and he can be backed at 6/1 in the first goalscorer betting with Boyles.

However, Celtic have conceded first in four of their last five matches and Rennes to score first can be backed at 23/20. Rennes themselves have problems as they are sixth in Ligue One, albeit with the best away record in the division - 12 points from seven away matches.

Victor Montano has scored five goals this season, including one goal in two Europa League appearances, and the Colombian striker is 6/1 to score first. But goals have been hard to come by as they have failed to score in their last two matches, with Celtic 13/5 to win this week's match with a clean sheet.

Their last eight matches have all involved under 2.5 goals and we fancy under 2.5 is the way to go, with Boylesports.com offering 4/5 for that particular bet this week.

It is effectively a must-win match for both sides, but neither look particularly capable of showing the class to take the three points. Rennes have lost their last five European away matches, while Celtic have lost three of their last four home matches against French opposition.

A draw would do little for either sides' hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages but it looks the most likely result and the correct score of 0-0 can be backed at 17/2.
