Round 37 of the Ligue 1 serves up an encounter between Rennes and Monaco taking place at Roazhon Park this coming Saturday.

We are bound to see an exciting game this coming Saturday as both Rennes and Monaco are looking to add some much-needed points to their respective accounts.

Rennes show off very admirable numbers from their past ten matches, as they scored two goals on average per match. That makes a total of 20 goals, whilst they allowed nine goals against, for an average of 0.9 per outing. They pulled off five clean sheets.

Monaco managed a bearable 14 goals from their past ten games, creating an average of 1.4 goals per game. They conceded 18 goals in total, and while claiming two clean sheets, they conceded 1.8 goals an average per game.

The most recent outing between Rennes and Monaco ended up a 1-1 draw. The best betting odds on a draw at full-time with the bookies are at 13/5.

Rennes vs Monaco Prediction

Rennes Form

Rennes look back on their last three matches with six points to show for their efforts. Against Nice, they were left empty-handed in a 2-1 defeat, but they avenged themselves by beating Troyes in a 4-0 win. They followed that up with a 0-5 win against AC Ajaccio in their most recent outing. In their last six Ligue 1 home matches, Rennes have four wins, no draws and two defeats. They scored 13 and conceded four goals.

Rennes had their sights set on qualifying for Europe, and this is still a highly probable outcome to the season, but they need to remain focused.

Monaco Form

Judging by their last three matches, we can expect a bit of everything from Monaco at the moment. Against Angers, they came out on top in a 1-2 win, before drawing 0-0 against Lille. Most recently they were left reeling in a 3-1 defeat win against Lyon. Monaco won twice, while also recording two draws, and two defeats in their last six away matches in the Ligue 1. The scoreline from these matches says 11 goals conceded and nine scored.

Rennes are in decent enough shape to make them the value bet, when facing Monaco. In their current form, we find it difficult to build an argument for the visitors to steal a point here.

Rennes earned nine points from their last nine matches against teams inside the top 6. They claimed two wins, following eight goals scored while also conceding ten. Monaco won five of their last 17 matches against teams from the top half of the Ligue 1 table, scoring 24 and conceding 29 goals. They collected 21 points from these. Rennes are looking at a record of 19 wins, five draws and 12 defeats in the Ligue 1 this season. Monaco have a record of 19 wins, eight draws and nine defeats in the Ligue 1.
