Shakhtar vs Rennes Recent Form
The Miners were in the Champions League’s Group F with Real Madrid, RB Leipzig, and Celtic. However, after six games, they failed to remain in the competition and were relegated to the Europa League.
In the six games, they produced terrible results. The Miners only won one game while losing two, and ended three in a draw. These results were nowhere near getting them into the next round of the most prominent football competition. However, the fact they were in it shows their overall quality and capacity.
On the other hand, Les Rennais finished fourth in their national league, thus ensuring a spot in the qualifier for the Europa League. In the Group Stage, they produced excellent results and thus advanced into the knockout stage. Other teams in the group were Fenerbahce, AEK Larnaca, and Dynamo Kyiv.
After six games, Rennes finished second with three wins and three games that ended in a draw. Despite not losing a game, their goal difference of 11:8 needs improvement. In a relatively easy group for them, they should have performed a lot better. They will have to show a lot more for the next round.
