Rennes Prediction

Rennes head into this encounter on the back of a dismal sequence of six matches without a win in Ligue 1 as their recent involvement in the Europa League appears to have finally taken its toll with the hosts struggling to keep their previous momentum going.

Rennes occupy a mid-table position in Ligue 1 and trail 4th placed Saint-Etienne by a massive 16 points which hasn’t been helped by recent defeats to Lyon, Nimes and Dijon along with gaining just single points in draws with Bordeaux, Angers and Nice in recent weeks.

This means that the hosts have earned just 3 points from the last 18 on offer and they’ll have a hard job of suddenly turning their form around here this evening I fancy. A home record of 7-5-4 21/14 seems fairly solid though, and Rennes have lost just 1 of their last 9 matches at their Roazhon Park.

The one defeat during this sequence was a 1-0 loss to Lyon, but recent wins over Amiens, Saint-Etienne and Caen should give the hosts confidence of getting something from this clash.


Key-Facts – Rennes v Monaco

  • Rennes have lost just 1 of their last 9 matches at their Roazhon Park
  • Monaco have lost just 2 of their last 7 away matches in Ligue 1
  • Monaco are unbeaten in their last 3 visits at Rennes


Monaco Prediction

A four match run without a win for Monaco have seen the visitors drop back down near the relegation mire as they now sit just one league position above the relegation play-off spot, currently occupied by third from bottom club, Caen.

The one thing in Monaco’s favour though is that they hold a valuable three point cushion over Caen ahead of their trip to Rennes on Wednesday night, despite picking up just 2 points from the last possible 12 on offer following defeats to Caen and PSG along with draws against Guingamp and Reims.

Results away from home have been reasonable though for Monaco who have suffered just two defeats out of their last seven matches on their travels which were at Dijon and PSG in 2-0 and 3-1 defeats respectively, but a 1-0 win at 2nd placed Lille recently should also give Monaco reason to be confident of getting something out of this clash.

In addition, Monaco have picked up valuable points at 6th placed Marseille, 5th placed Montpellier, Angers and Guingamp as well in recent weeks, amidst an overall away record of 4-5-7 17/23.

Betting Tips Verdict

Rennes are seemingly stuck in a bit of a rut of late while Monaco have picked up some decent results on the road in recent times.
