When the two clubs square off at Roazhon Park on Thursday night, Rennes will be looking to secure their place in the Europa League last 16 following a devastating loss to Shakhtar in Warsaw.
Rennes kept its Champions League ambitions alive with a straightforward 2-0 victory against Clermont over the weekend, and they must be feeling confident going into Shakhtar’s visit. Arnaud Kalimuendo, a forward who is healthy again, should hold his spot in the starting lineup after scoring two goals against Clermont, while Assignon, Terrier, Traore, and Xeka should all be out due to injury.
Stade Rennais clearly missed the target by only finishing second in their pool, behind Fenerbahce, an opponent they had previously dominated twice, but ahead of Larnaca and Dynamo Kiev throughout the first half of the season while playing in a very affordable group for the Europa League.
They have to play this barrage against Shakhtar since they were poorly geared up after losing the first leg by a score of 2-1 the previous week. The Rouge et Noir displayed a very tough face, one that resembled that seen when Ligue 1 resumed.

The unpolished diamond Mudryk, who had scored 10 goals during the first half of the season, including three in the Champions League, transferred to Chelsea during the winter transfer window. This group was unable to adequately fill his position. On the other side, the youthful midfielders Bondarenko and Kryskiv, who both scored in the first game, should be there.
