Rennes vs Monaco: Preview and Predictions

Rennes vs Monaco French Ligue 1 Match 20th May 2017

Rennes vs Monaco
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 20th May, 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK Time
Venue: Roazhon Park, Rennes.

The new champions of France, Monaco will end what has been a superb Ligue 1 campaign away to Rennes on Saturday evening. Monaco wrapped up the title at home against St Etienne when they won 2-0 and are now 6 points clear at the top where PSG cannot catch them.

Monaco have been in terrific form and scoring goals for fun where they have over 100 this season, literally unheard of in French football. Though they are away they will start off as the favourites to win this game.

However Rennes will have the advantage of having extra rest and surely we can presume that some of the Monaco players had a good celebration in mid-week?

Rennes come into this game on form having won their last two matches and Monaco have won their last 10.

Rennes vs Monaco:Prediction

It will be party atmosphere at Rennes, where the home club will be respectful to host the new champions of France. We should expect to see both teams score, even if Monaco won’t be at their best, they certainly would not have prepared for this game. Small stakes on a Rennes win with a handicap should be taken on.
