Note: The odds for Monaco vs Rennes are correct on Betfred at the time of writing. Please confirm with the bookmaker for updated odds before placing your bet.

Monaco to win

Monaco is hoping for Champions League places and playing 6th placed Rennes could grant them such a desire on Sunday. The hosts have lost only one game at home since 16th December 2020. However, Monaco lost the reverse fixture 2-1 and facing Rennes again with two games to go presents Niko Kovac with another challenge as he hopes for a top three finish. However, Monaco’s recent run of form is not to be wished away. They have had the best run of results since December and such consistency should gift them all the points on Sunday.

Monaco to keep a clean sheet

Our second pick is backing Monaco to get a clean sheet victory against Rennes on Sunday. The hosts have 14 clean sheets so far, the third-highest in Ligue 1. Moreover, Monaco has 10 clean sheets in their last 12 games in all competitions, eight of which have been clean-sheet victories. In this game, Niko Kovac will be looking for revenge and we don’t see his side losing twice to Rennes this season. Moreover, Monaco has a better h2h against Rennes of 10 victories and 5 draws in the last 19 meetings since 2010.

Wissam Ben Yedder to score anytime

We are also backing Wissam Ben Yedder to find the net against Rennes on Sunday. The player was on target in the reverse fixture, the only goal Monaco scored in that game. Backing the thirty-year-old forward to score again on Sunday is a value bet. He is Monaco’s top scorer and has found the net eight times in the last nine game and provided four assists within that duration.

Match Preview: Should Monaco Keep their Title Charge Alive?

Securing a place in the Coupe de France finals shows just how good Niko Kovac’s men have been this season. The big question is can they still get their hands on Ligue 1 trophy?

Monaco

Monaco is five points shy of table-toppers Lille, with only two games to go. The remaining two fixtures against Rennes this Sunday and Lens next week could prove vital in their quest for top three his season. However, Monaco can only get the title if PSG and Lille loses all their reaming two games, which is a tall order. Thus, the best bet for Niko Kovac this season is finishing strongly and qualifying for Champions League places after two years.

Rennes

Rennes won the reverse fixture 2-1, converting all their only two shots on target. Both shots on target were in the first half. Rennes travels to Monaco with a good run of results in the last ten games. However, losing three of their last five away games in a similar fashion of 1-0 should worry Bruno Genesio and his men as they prepare to face a much stronger side on Sunday. Despite losing three away games in the last five trips, Rennes has the sixth-best away record of 7 victories, 6 draws and 5 losses.
