Opponents, Stade Rennes drew their group opener 2-2 against Tottenham Hotspur, but Bruno Genesio’s side have also had a difficult start to their league campaign. A 1-1 draw against Bordeaux at the weekend leaves them 13th in the table.

Another European success for Vitesse?

The Europa Conference League has been good so far for Vitesse and the club showed against Anderlecht and Mura that they can be a force in this competition.

Stade Rennes is the strongest opposition that Vitesse has faced in the competition so far but do not right off the hosts from causing a shock.

The Ligue 1 side go into the game as favourites but Vitesse has the players to cause them problems and the home crowd will be getting right behind their side as they look to make it two wins from two.
