Monaco vs Rennes
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 7th October 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco)
Have a team fallen from grace so quick than Monaco? The 2017 champions are in the bottom three after a terrible start and there is pressure on the club after years of selling their best players. Coach Leonardo Jardim can only look on and this clearly is not his fault as he is seeing players sold to the highest bidder.
This has left Monaco with just 1 win this season which was their opening game and so they have not won a match for almost 2 months. They also lost in midweek in the Champions League to Borussia Dortmund. Last weekend in the league they were defeated by Saint Etienne away from home.
At Stade Louis II they are remarkably looking for their first win of the season after 4 games where they have lost 2 and drawn 2.
Rennes have 8 points and will be well aware that a Monaco victory would see the hosts surpass them. Recent form has seen the club go the last 4 games without a win. Away from home Rennes have the 2nd to worst record in the league where they are searching for their first win and have won 1 point from a possible 12.
Monaco vs Rennes: Head to Head
- Monaco won this fixture last season 2-1.
- Rennes have not beaten Monaco in 4 years.
- Monaco have scored 13 goals against Rennes in the last 4 games.
Monaco vs Rennes: Prediction
Playing Rennes is the best chance for Monaco to get back to winning ways. Both sides have poor form but Rennes have had a harder time away from home and on paper Monaco do still have the better team.
Surely Monaco’s form will pick up at one point and when it does it should be at home. The team will remain a shadow of themselves but there is 3 points to be won here, lose this and this could end up being a very difficult season for the team.
