Rennes team news

It will surprise precisely no one to learn that, by the numbers, Paris Saint Germain are the top team in Ligue 1 this season. More wins, fewer losses, more goals and,, of course, more money, are part and parcel of the Parisian club’s model. With seven games remaining, PSG sit 12 points clear of second Marseilles, yet another league title a formality. In the spots immediately below them, however it’s a veritable dogfight. Marseille’s sit second, on 59 points. However, based on results and goal difference, they cannot be deemed appreciably better than Rennes (56 points), Strasbourg (52), Nice (51), or even Monaco (50).

Friday night in the northwestern French region of Brittany, third place Rennes – the second-best club in Ligue 1 this season based on goal difference (they’ve conceded twice more than Marsay in 31 games, while scoring 16 more goals), who sit three points behind Marseilles for France’s second and final Champions League spot – welcome defensive stalwarts Monaco.

This contest is the first in a five-game run leading up to a massive showdown between Marseilles and Rennes on the season’s penultimate match day which could settle the race for a second and determine France’s ‘other Champions League team’ in 2022/23.

On form, Rennes are the top team in France, with wins in six of their last seven Ligue 1 contests. The side comes into this contest nursing a couple of nicks – namely, starting goalkeeper Alfred Gomis and dangerous Ghanaian midfielder Kamaldeen Sulemana – but otherwise relatively healthy. It is worth noting that, in their absences, Croatian midfielder Lavro Majer and Turkish goalkeeper Dogan Alemdar, along with the entirely of a ferocious attack have more-than-ably picked up the slack.

As long as the three top scores from Rennes powerhouse attack – Martin Terrier, Gaetan Laborde and Serhou Guirassy – are all present and accounted for, Bruno Genesio doesn’t have much to worry about.

Rennes predicted XI: Alemdar; Assignon, Omari, Aguerd, Truffert; Majer, Martin, Lovro; Bourigeaud, Laborde, Terrier

Monaco team news

Both in the form table and the actual table, Monaco trails Rennes, but is hardly out of shouting distance.

The Monégasque side comes into this game in sixth place, winners a four of their last five in the league. In France, a top-five finish ensures some manner of European football. At present, Monaco trade trail fifth-placed Nice (who’d be in a Europa Conference League qualification spot) by a single point, fourth-place Strasbourg (who, as of now, would automatically be in the Conference League) by two points, and Rennes (in France’s one Europa League spot) by six points.

It’s worth pointing out that the manner in which Monaco have climbed the table and consolidated their position, though impressive, bears one massive difference to Rennes’ technique. While Rennes does indeed have Ligue 1’s fourth-stingiest defense, their deep and potent attack is as more a hallmark of their success.

Monaco, meanwhile, boasts an equally stingy defense, which has allowed just 32 goals in 31 league games. Their attack, however, is a different animal, having netted just 47 goals (compared, again, with Rennes’ 67) in those same 31 games. Against the overwhelming majority of Ligue 1 sides, these guys are good value for a 1-0 win. However, against a side with an attack like the one Rennes trots out, it’s tough to imagine Monaco creating enough to come away with a result.

Monaco predicted XI: Bravo; Bellerin, Bartra, Moreno, Pezzella; Carvalho, Guardado, Canales, Fekir; Juanmi; Willian Jose

Scoreline prediction: Rennes 2-1 Monaco

This game will undoubtedly be competitive and hard fought. However, there are a few teams in France that can reliably assume they’ll keep Rennes running wild. Even those that can should still expect to see a tally or two on the scoreboard. It’s unlikely that Monaco has enough in attack to match even a pedestrian output from Rennes.
