Life remains tough in the Principality Thierry Henry has come to replace Leonardo Jardim at the helm of Monaco but the results of the team persist in not improving. So much so that in Ligue 1 the recently ex-French champion is having difficulty leaving the relegation zone, being that already it is maintained in the 19th and penultimate position with only 13 points in 18 rounds.
Football Betting Tips Monaco vs Rennes
At the weekend, last Sunday, the Monaco returned to the victories, in game to count for the 32-final, but was far from impressing, as they beat Canet Roussillon, a fifth-tier side in France, who were outnumbered after just 2 minutes and was reduced to 10 men by the 15th.
Next Sunday, Monaco are scheduled to make a difficult trip to Olympique Marseille.
In Rennes, December was also a time of change, with Sabri Lamouchi leaving following a 4-1 loss at home to Strasbourg and the arrival of young coach Julien Stéphan, 38.
Contrary to what happens in Monaco, the “psychological whipping” has had an effect and in what way.
For the moment, Rennes are unbeaten in their six games under Stéphan, who made a 2-0 triumph at Lyon and won four consecutive home games for Ligue 1, Europa League and Coupe de la Ligue.
Last Sunday, it was time to continue celebrating, qualifying in the French Cup after a penalty shoot-out at home against Brest (2-2 in regulation time).
Football Betting Tips Analyzed Monaco vs Rennes
Looking to save their season by winning the League Cup, Monaco reach the quarter-finals after failing to confirm their qualification in the French Cup against modest Canet Roussillon.
Rennes, however, did not have an easy bone to chew on, having to go on penalties after a two-way tie with Brest, the Ligue 2 runner-up.
Curiously, the two clubs changed coaches at about the same time, in Monaco the arrival of Henry did not change much in practical terms, in Rennes had great effect, being that with Stéphan in charge the team has not yet lost and adds five victories and a draw in six games.
I think the Rennes’ good run sequence could continue here against a troubled Monaco and they will have an opportunity here in the January market to strengthen the team and try to look for a second half of the season completely different from the first.
Betting Tips: Rennes or draw
