Half-time/full-time: Arsenal/Arsenal

Arsenal got on the scoresheet after just three minutes in the first leg and likely would have been ahead at half-time had it not been for Sokratis’ red card.

The Gunners have led at the break and gone on to win all of their last four home games and should do so again here.

Both teams to score

Arsenal will badly miss the suspended Sokratis on Thursday night, and a clean sheet looks unlikely against a good, attacking Rennes side.

The French club followed up their 3-1 first-leg victory with a 3-1 win over Caen at the weekend, and they’ve now scored in 11 of their last 12 matches in all competitions.

Alexandre Lacazette to score

Arsenal’s appeal over Lacazette’s three-game Europa League ban has been partially upheld, meaning he is available to play on Thursday night.

The Frenchman has been in great form recently, scoring six goals in his last 13 appearances for the Gunners, five of which have come at home.

Over 2.5 cards for each team

There were five cards shown in the first leg, including Sokratis’ red, and the referee should again be busy in this return fixture.

Arsenal have had at least two players booked in each of their last four games, while Rennes’ last five matches have seen an average of six cards shown.
