Rennes vs Monaco
French Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 1st May 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Rennes).
It will be party time in Rennes as fans will crowd Roazhon Park for what is sure to be a sell out match when they take on Monaco in Ligue 1.
The party of course is because Rennes won the Coupe de France against PSG winning their first major trophy in a generation. This match at home makes up for the game they missed at the weekend and it also will act as a celebration of sorts where the club will be able to show off their trophy.
As for the game Rennes have fallen too far behind to challenge for Europe, but that won’t matter as they are their with the cup win. They have 43 points and form has been poor with no wins in their last five games. At home Rennes have no wins in their last 2 games with their last encounter here finishing 0-0 against Nice.
Monaco are not safe, even though they looked it a few weeks back. 4 games without a win means that the club are just 3 points from safety over Caen. The only other advantage that they have over Caen is that they have a game in hand, which is this one, so a win would be massive. But form doesn’t bode well for the club.
Away from home Monaco have won just 4 times and have just one victory which came against Lille of all teams in their last five games.
Rennes vs Monaco: Head to Head
The last time the teams met was this year in the Coupe de la Ligue which Monaco won on penalties after the game finished 1-1.
Earlier this season at Monaco, Rennes won 2-1.
Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
The last four league fixtures have a 100% success rate to see both teams to score.
Rennes vs Monaco: Prediction
We remember Strasbourg when they won the Coupe de la Ligue and then a few days later had to face Reims at home. It was easy to think that Strasbourg would be tired and weary after winning a cup and lose to Reims and in the end they slaughtered them 4-0.
Every game is different of course but we think Rennes can beat an under confident Monaco side who have been sucked back into a relegation fight, and plus Rennes have some decent results over Monaco lately in the league too. Rennes as a football club have never been so happy and we believe we will see that on the football pitch.
