Monaco vs Rennes
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 20th October 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00CET
Venue: Stade Louis II.
Monaco lost 3-1 at Montpellier before the international break and that defeat stopped a 3-game unbeaten run which included two back to back wins. It was being suggested that the team had finally found their form again after 2 miserable seasons, but it is clear that the club still have a long way to go.
However, they will be content to be back at home and try to focus on winning games at Stade Louis II. The clubs last match here finished in an emphatic 4-1 victory over Brest. Overall at home Monaco have won 2, lost 2 and drawn 1, but it has been one month since they have lost at home.
Monaco are in 16th and they can get close to the top 10 with a win in this game. Rennes are 10th with 12 points and 3 points ahead of their hosts. The club started the season well but have now stalled and have no wins in their last 5 games, in that period of time they have earned just 3 points and their last game finished with a disappointing 1-0 loss at home to Reims.
Monaco vs Rennes: Head to Head
- Last season Rennes won this fixture 2-1.
- The last 5 meetings have all seen both teams to score.
- Overall there is an 80% chance to see both teams to score.
Monaco vs Rennes: Prediction
We will put our trust in Monaco to get the win as the team looked fresher and better in recent weeks, and the Montpellier loss was away from home.
It is worth backing Wissam Ben Yedder to score also he has made a real impact with the club since his arrival from Sevilla.
And we will not ignore the both teams to score stat which is a real stand out. These games are usually exciting ones with goals and we think this match will be no different.
Monaco’s objective has to be to make coming to their stadium difficult for opposition.
