Rennes vs Monaco
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 19th September 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).
Roazhon Park will welcome a top of the league encounter on Friday evening when Rennes take on Monaco.
Rennes are 1st and Monaco are 2nd and they are only seperated by goal difference, so this fixture has come at th perfect time for fans to watch on television.
Rennes are on a 2 game winning run just like Monaco and there are goals in this Rennes side who have scored 6 in their last two games after they beat Nimes away from home 4-2. Rennes have already beaten Montpellier here.
Monaco have beaten Metz and Nantes to get this far and have scored 5 goals this season. There is a feeling that the team will be much better this season although their strikers are yet to get their scoring boots on.
Monaco have only played away once this season in a 1-0 win over Metz and they made a lot of the game and could have drawn it so they will have to be better prepared for this match.
Rennes vs Monaco: Head to Head
In the league last season this game finished 2-2.
In the league Rennes have no wins over Monaco when at home in the last 4 meetings and we would have to go back to 2014 for the last time Rennes won this fixture.
The last six league meetings in a row have all seen both teams to score.
Rennes vs Monaco: Prediction
Even though Rennes have struggled to beat Monaco at home in the league recently it is worth pointing out that the majority of these games have ended in a draw.
Rennes are a strong side and have played much better football than Monaco, though Monaco have the superior squad. But Rennes will be difficult to beat at home, Monaco just seem unconvincing at the moment and will need to play better to get our trust fully in them. They only just scrapped past Metz the other week.
