Monaco vs Rennes Match Preview
Monaco host Rennes for their Matchday 10 clash as they return to Ligue 1 also hoping to return to the winning ways after seeing a winning streak of two ended by Montpellier (3-1) in quite a comfortable loss at Stade de la Mosson just ahead of the International break. They will need more if they’re to climb the table and a 68’ goal from Wissam Ben Yedder is hardly a consolation.
Les Monegasques have been scoring more goals at home ground and we’ve seen them beat Nice (3-1) and Brest (4-1) in two high-scoring clashes at this ground beforehand. They’ll now be without suspended Golovin, Ballo, Gelson Martins as well as injured Pellegri and Jovetic up front, but turn to in-form Ben Yedder and Islam Slimani for goals.
Rennes will still have to search for an upset as they look to capitalize on the rivals’ woes, failing to impress across competitions lately and now coming desperate to end an eight-match winless streak. They saw a comeback and a disappointing loss at Lazio (2-1) and struggles for points on the road will be just as worrying as a 0-1 home loss to Reims (0-1) now behind them.
Julien Stephan’s men found the net just twice in their last four games and a point snatched in Marseille (1-1) in the process will hardly feel like a great boost to their confidence. They could drop down the table and theoretically as far as the 18th spot with a loss here, which could mean the mounting pressure get to them.
We will back Monaco to secure all three points and bounce to the winning ways at Stade Louis II once again, going for a Home win at 17/20 with bet365 which comes off as a great value despite their struggles for stability still overwhelming.
We should be in for goals, though, and they will need an in-form attacking line to do so we feel. We’ll thus also go for a high-scoring occasion with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 10/11 with bet365 – rated a solid approach to the fixture by many in the know as well.
