Rennes will host AC Milan in the second leg of their 2024 UEFA Europa League matchup on Thursday on Paramount+.

UEFA Europa League picks for AC Milan vs. Rennes

Before you tune in to Thursday's match, you need to see the Europa League picks from betting expert Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since last year's World Cup, Green has been profitable in multiple areas on his soccer picks, including the Champions League (+4.78 units), the FA Cup (+3.07), the EFL Cup (+3.64), Euro 2024 qualifiers (+3.01) and the Europa League (+1.60).

For Rennes vs. AC Milan, Green is picking AC Milan (draw no bet) for a -105 payout. Stefano Piolo rested a handful of starters including Rafael Leão, Christian Pulisic, Olivier Giroud and Yunus Musah against Monza but the big guns are expected to be back on the pitch on Thursday to help insure the Rossoneri advance to the next round.

Rennes will be desperate for goals after not being able to challenge goaltender Mike Maignan in the first leg of the competition, but their defense will be the big factor on Thursday since they had trouble containing Leao and company in the previous match.

"Motivation could be an issue for [AC Milan] as they know that even a two-goal defeat would be enough to see them reach the next round of the competition, but the gulf in quality between these teams should still be evident, particularly if Milan can get the ball to Pulisic and Leão in transition," Green told SportsLine. Stream the match here.
