Match Preview

Rennes have lost only five of their previous 23 Ligue 1 (L1) home fixtures (W10, D8, L5), failing to find the net just four times in the process. They also like to start well in front of their own fans, having scored first in 11 of their 16 top-flight home games this term (W6, D3, L2).
The hosts claimed their third Coupe de France title last Saturday when they beat title holders PSG via a penalty shootout, yet their last L1 fixture saw them extend their winless run into a sixth league game (D3, L3). In superb defensive form though, they have recorded a clean sheet in half (eight) of their 16 top-flight home matches this season – the division’s fourth-best ratio.
Visiting Monaco were on an encouraging run of four L1 road trips without defeat (W1, D3) when they finally lost away at PSG in their previous league outing (3-1). However, the fact remains that only two sides have conceded more than Leonardo Jardim’s Monaco this season (49 goals – 1.48 on average per match).
Not one for starting games quickly, Monaco have scored just three of their 17 L1 away goals during the first half. As a result, they have been leading at half-time in just two of their 16 away league games this term (HT: W2, D6, L8).
Players to watch: Rennes striker M’Baye Niang has eight L1 goals so far, though only three have arrived on home turf.
Meanwhile, Monaco top scorer Radamel Falcao has scored seven of his 12 league goals on the road.
Stat attack: Both teams have scored in just 37.5% (six) of Rennes’ 16 L1 home games – L1’s joint-second lowest ratio.
Seven of Monaco’s 16 away league games have featured a 1-0 half-time scoreline either way.
Six of the last seven top-flight H2Hs held here have produced under 2.5 goals (total).
