David Moyes and his West Ham Utd side will continue their journey in Europe with a friendly match against French side Rennes today.
The Hammers already enjoyed European success last season and will look to continue their fine pre season form as the Premier League season approaches.
Declan Rice may have left the club, moving to Arsenal but the squad is still strong enough to improve on last season’s finish.
Having set a strong starting pace, Rennes will now have a break from facing their fellow French teams until the beginning of the 2023-24 Ligue 1 season.
Before that, they have an upcoming match against West Ham, followed by a trip to Burton upon Trent to take on Nottingham Forest on August 2.
