Everton will play a pre-season friendly against Stade Rennais in northern France on Saturday, 28 July 2018.
Marco Silva's team will continue their preparations for the 2018-19 campaign with a match against the Ligue 1 club at Stade Municipal de Vitré, home of AS Vitré, with kick-off at 6:30pm CET (5:30pm BST).
It will be the Everton's sixth pre-season friendly of the summer after games against ATV Irdning, Bury, Lille, Porto and Blackburn Rovers, with Valencia also set to visit Goodison Park on Saturday, 4 August 2018.
Stade Rennais – commonly referred to as Rennes – finished 5th in Ligue 1 last season and boast the likes of former West Ham striker Diafra Sakho in their squad.

These friendlies seem very last minute. You would have thought having a DOF in charge, things would be different. This doesn't bode well heading into the new season.

The Toffees, who wrap up their preparations for the new campaign against Valencia at Goodison Park on August 4, created a succession of openings against Portuguese champions Porto without being able to apply a decisive touch.
Perhpas M&M weren't taken with SportPesa structuring the pre-season fixture list?

Then again, it is only 17 days until the season kicks off.

The U23s have played three pre-season friendlies so far, and I'm expecting more but I can't find them listed in the normal place at the Official Website. They put a decent enough report up for the third one on Saturday, where Unsworth's lads put four past Stockport County in the second half. It's the only one of their reports where they have listed the line-up.
