Rennes vs Monaco
France – Ligue 1
Date: Friday, 15 April 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park.

Rennes are chasing a spot in the top-two, in order to secure direct qualification to the Champions League, and if not, at least a third-place finish, which would afford them an entry into the Qualifiers for the CL.

They have been on a good streak of results lately, and are scoring goals at a superb rate as well. As of now, they are placed third, with a lead of four points over the fourth-placed Strasbourg, and are trailing three points below the second-placed Marseille.

Meanwhile, Monaco too are on scintillating form, and are finding the back of the net in supreme fashion. They are placed sixth in the table at the moment, and need at least a top-five finish to secure European qualification.

With just seven match-days remaining, it goes without saying that both teams are desperate for points, and moreover, a win this Friday will be hugely beneficial, since both squads are part of the race for a top-tier finish.

By the looks of things, expect a high-scoring affair between the two squads this weekend at the Roazhon Park.
