Rennes vs Monaco Prediction 4th April 2018

Rennes vs Monaco
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 4th April 2018
Kick off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Roazhon Park (Lyon).

Rennes were able to have the weekend as their game was put back because of the Coupe de la Ligue final on Saturday evening. The home side are involved in an exciting finish to see who will finish 5th and try and claim the last remaining European place. Three teams now have 45 points and only goal difference separates them. Rennes have fallen to 6th place after Montpellier took 5th with a win over Montpellier. They have a chance to regain it back but their opposition is Monaco.

Monaco lost in the final of the Coupe de la Ligue just as they did last year and to the same opponent in PSG. This latest loss has been a bitter blow to the club, and they will not be in the best of spirits now having to travel many hundreds of miles to Rennes.

Monaco’s league form is very strong though where they are undefeated in their last 15 games, and they have one of the best away records in the league where they have picked up 25 points from 42. They have also scored an impressive 10 goals in their last 3 away matches and will start as favourites to win this game.

Rennes vs Monaco: Head to Head

  • Rennes have no wins in this fixture for the past 8 matches
  • Monaco has scored 17 goals in their past 4 meetings with Rennes
  • 5 of the last 7 matches have had the correct score of 1-0 at half time

Rennes vs Monaco: Prediction

Rennes have had a good rest and will regroup in order to get something from this difficult game. Rennes have huge motivation to win for the 5th place. Of course Monaco had their big loss at the weekend but they only have a 4 point advantage to Marseille and will want to bounce back. The stand out bet here for maximum stakes is to see both teams to score.

Rennes vs Monaco: Bet Tips
