Six of Monaco’s eight goal efforts found the back of the net. Monaco scored goals through Guillermo Maripán (10′) and Youssouf Fofana (63′).
In five of the last six matches in which ESTAC played, at least three goals per game were scored. In this span, opposition teams scored 14 goals, compared to 11 for ESTAC.
Prior to this encounter, ESTAC had lost their previous six league games to Rennes. After defeating Brest 3-1 in their previous match in Ligue 1, Rennes will enter the contest on a winning streak.
Rennes controlled 65% of the possession in that game and nine of their 16 shots on goal were on goal. Joe Rodon (53′), Martin Terrier (89′), and Désiré Doué (91′) scored the goals for Rennes.
Brest had 7 shots on goal, only 2 of which were on target. The goal for Brest was scored by Franck Honorat (57′). Prior to this match, Rennes has been a threat going forward, scoring nine goals in their last six games.
This doesn’t hide the reality that Rennes has had some defensive issues, as they have also allowed goals in six of those same games. However, there’s a chance that pattern won’t continue into this game’s second half.
ESTAC vs Rennes – Betting Analysis
Due to a generally intact group, the only absence-related fitness issue for ESTAC manager Bruno Irles is present. Due to a knee injury, Andreas Bruus is no longer eligible.
Gauthier Gallon, Erik Palmer-Brown, Jackson Porozo, Yoann Salmier, Thierno Baldé, Florian Tardieu, Wilson Odobert, , Mama Baldé, and Renaud Ripart appear to be candidates for ESTAC’s 3-5-2 system for this match.
Several of Rennes manager Bruno Génésio’s players are injured. Both Warmed Omari (Pubalgia) and Arnaud Kalimuendo (Torn Muscle) are unable to participate.
With Steve Mandanda, Lorenz Assignon, Joe Rodon, Arthur Theate, Birger Meling, Lovro Majer, Baptiste Santamaria, and Kamal-Deen Sulemana as starters, we predict Rennes will choose for a 4-3-3 formation.
