Match Prediction, Odds & Free Tips
On Wednesday night, It’s Monaco vs Rennes at the Stade Louis ll in what could be a massive game in the fight for the European spots in Ligue One.
The home team are just two points outside the European spots in eighth place. A victory here would certainly boost their continental hopes for next season, although their recent form has been inconsistent.
However, Niko Kovac’s team has lost just once in their last ten matches in all competitions, with that defeat coming against the league’s dominant force PSG. Last time out the team from the principality recorded a 2-0 win at Red Star in the Coupe De France.
Monaco also have a decent recent record in Ligue One at the Stade Louis ll, as they are unbeaten in six home matches, having recorded four wins and two draws. They have also scored at least twice in five of those six unbeaten home matches.
The Red and Blacks are third-place in the table, but their recent form has not been great in Ligue One. They recorded a 1-0 win over Lorient in the cup in their last outing. However, the visitors have now lost two of their last three league matches, against Lille and Nice both by a 2-1 score-line. Despite the recent defeats, Bruno Genesio’s team are still just one point behind second-placed Marseille, although OM do have a game in hand.
Rennes are unbeaten in their last five away matches in Ligue One, having won three of their last four on their travels. The visitors have also been highly potent on their travels, scoring at least two goals in their last four away matches in Ligue One.
