Team news and rosters
Rennes have just been eliminated from the Europa Conference League, losing to Leicester City by an aggregate score of 3-2 in the Round of 16.
Rennes have a chance of moving into second place in Ligue 1 if they can string together a few wins in the streak, which would be the team’s best result in France. The team’s previous best was third in the COVID-shortened 2019-20 campaign.
Rennes are coming off a 3-2 victory over Reims, with Benjamin Bourigeaud scoring two goals, while Martin Terrier added another.
Predicted Rennes starting XI: Truffert, Aguerd, Omari, Traoré, Santamaria, Martin, Terrier, Majer, Bourigeaud, Laborde; Alemdar.
Phiippe Clement’s men recently saw their Europa League run come to an end at the hands of Braga, losing 3-1 on aggregate in the Round of 16. The team is currently one place away from qualifying for European competition next season. It would be the third time in four seasons that the team failed to make it to one of UEFA’s competitions, a huge change from the five-year run of Champions League appearances last decade.
Monaco are on a three-game winning streak in Ligue 1, including Sunday’s 2-1 victory over Troyes which saw Caio Henrique Oliveira Silva and Kevin Volland score a goal. During that streak, Monaco secured a 3-0 win over Ligue 1 leaders PSG.
Wissam Ben Yedder leads Monaco with 18 goals this season.
Starting lineup planned for Monaco: Aguilar, Disasi, Badiashile, Henrique, Vanderson, Tchouaméni, Fofana, Golovin, Ben Yedder, Boadu; Nubel.
