The struggling Monaco are hosting Rennes with a hope that they will record their second win since the start of the season in the Ligue 1. Here are our vip soccer predictions today for this game.
The start of the new season was terrible for Monaco. The team is currently 18th in Ligue 1’s standings with just 6 points won and a very modest record of 1 win, 3 draws and 4 defeats. It’s really hard to believe that a good team like Monaco could start the season so bad.
In their last five games Leonardo Jardim’s team is without a win – two draws and three defeats. In their last game they suffered a second consecutive defeat, losing with 0-2 the visit to Saint-Etienne. Wahbi Khazri scored both goals in Diego Benaglio’s net. Jardim tried to change something, giving a chance to Aleksandr Golovin and Nacer Chadli, but this changed nothing for Monaco.
Last season Monaco finished second in the league and qualified for the Champions League, but looking at them right now, they look like a totally different team.
Rennes are just one position above Monaco in the standings, being 17th with 8 points. They have won just two of their matches so far. Rennes were in a pretty unpleasant run of three consecutive losses, which they stopped with a 1-1 draw against Toulouse at home.
M’baye Niang opened the score for Rennes with a penalty kick in the 70th minute, but Toulouse equalized with a strike from Jeanclair Todibo just three minutes before the end of the game.
These are our vip soccer predictions today for the Ligue 1 clash between Monaco and Rennes. It’s hard to predict how this game will end, because these two teams are performing in a very similar way since the start of the season. But Monaco have the advantage to play at home, of course.
