On French soil, Panathinaikos does not have a good… tradition, in all UEFA competitions. In a total of seven matches, the “clover” has not recorded a single victory (it has lost five times, while counting two more draws).
Ivan Jovanovic’s side have 4 points in Group 6, will play at ‘Riazhon Park’ with around 1500 fans in the stands, but are without the long-term injured Eric Palmer-Brown and Hordur Magnusson, as well as Juancar, the who also has not overcome his injury problem since the derby with Olympiacos.
From there, Bruno Genesio does not count on the help of the main players Steve Mandada and Bertug Yildirim, as both are injured, while instead Christopher Wu and Ibrahim Salah return to his disposal. Rennes has 6 points and knows that with a victory it will “lock” a “ticket” for the next phase of the competition.
