Monaco vs Rennes Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Rennes will be aiming for their second victory in Coupe de la Ligue when they travel to the Stade Saint-Symphorien to take on Monaco on Wednesday night. This is Monaco’s first game in the competitions this season, while Rennes managed a hard-fought 3-2 home win over Lorient in the previous round. A brace from Pedro Henrique and an excellent strike by Wesley Said were enough for Christian Gourcuff’s men to qualify for this stage of the competition. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Monaco Preview

Monaco are one of the most in-form teams in Ligue 1 at the moment in time as they are currently on an eight-game unbeaten streak in the league, and find themselves in second position in the standings, just one point off the current leaders Nice. Leonardo Jardim’s men have played an entertaining football throughout this Ligue 1 campaign as they managed an impressive tally of 53 goals in 17 league fixtures. Monaco scored at least three goals in seven of their last ten league fixtures. Radamel Falcao has found his goalscoring boots once again, and he is now leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 10 goals in his eleven league appearances. The 30-year-old striker scored a hat-trick at the weekend in Monaco’s comfortable 0-4 away victory over Bordeaux in Ligue 1. The Monegasque’s home form throughout this 2016/2017 competitive season has been near perfect, winning eleven and drawing two of their 13 home fixtures in all competitions. Furthermore, Monaco are unbeaten in the last eight home meetings with Rennes in all competitions, including a 3-1 victory in the Coupe de France back in February 2015. Monaco managed to win the Coupe de la Ligue trophy back in the 2002/2003 season, but they haven’t obtained any notable performances since then.

Rennes Preview

Rennes, on the other hand, have already played one game in the current Coupe de la Ligue campaign, winning 3-2 at home over Lorient towards the end of October. However, they have endured a mixed run of form since then, registering three wins, three defeats and one draw in their last seven games in Ligue 1. Rennes did well to beat Saint-Etienne 2-0 at home a week ago, but they succumbed to a narrow 1-0 defeat at Lyon at the weekend. Despite the recent struggle, they still sit in a respectable 5th position in the Ligue 1 table, just one point off the top four. The bad news is that Rennes haven’t been at their best on the road in this 2016/2017 competitive season, winning just one of their eight competitive fixtures. Rennes managed to reach the final round of the Coupe de la Ligue in the 2012/2013 season but were beaten 1-0 by Saint-Etienne. However, they were eliminated in the round of 16 in their most recent five attempts. Their recent away record in Coupe de la Ligue has been awful and has seen them losing six of their last seven games on the road. A player to watch here should be Kamil Grosicki, as the International Polish midfielder has helped his team with 4 goals and 2 assists in his 12 league appearances.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I can’t expect anything else than a big margin victory for Monaco, as they are playing an incredible attacking football at the moment in time. Furthermore, the Monegasque are unbeaten in their last 13 home competitive fixtures, while Rennes have only won once in their eight away games in all competitions.
