Round two of the new Ligue 1 campaign sees Monaco, who came home in third last season, lock horns with Rennes at Stade Louis II, Monaco this coming Saturday.

Everyone dreams of opening a new campaign with three points, and Monaco made sure the dream became reality in the premiere round.Rennes came away from their opening match of the season on a sour note and no doubt aim to rectify themselves.

The match on Saturday has all the makings of a tight battle as Monaco and Rennes look to bag a crucial three points in the process.

Monaco show off very admirable numbers from their past ten matches, as they scored 2.4 goals on average per match. That makes a total of 24 goals, whilst they allowed 11 goals against, for an average of 1.1 per outing. They pulled off two clean sheets.

Rennes travel to their next away match this coming Saturday having performed a tolerable average of 1.9 goals in ten matches. They scored a total of 19 goals, whilst shipping 13 goals against. An average of 1.3 goals against a game. They hung on to three clean sheets in this streak.

Monaco vs Rennes Prediction

Monaco are unbeaten in their last three games after drawing 1-1 with PSV Eindhoven, beating Strasbourg1-2 and drawing 2-2 with PSV Eindhoven.Monaco have been in potent form at Stade Louis II, Monaco, winning no less than five of the past six Ligue 1 matches here. They also hammered in 13 goals, while letting in five as they also lost once.

Monaco are perhaps an outside bet at best for title challenge in the league this term, but a top three finish certainty isn't unreachable.

In their last six away matches in the Ligue 1, Rennes won twice, while also recording two draws. They endured two defeats in this run, with a scoreline from these matches saying 11 goals conceded and 12 scored.

A season somewhat above expectations could perhaps make Rennes a contender in a title race, though they do look capable of a podium finish if catching the right momentum.

Rennes and Monaco seem to find it tough getting their defensively lines in order, as they both concede too many goals. We hope the trend continues this coming Saturday, as we aim for both teams to score.
