Match between two teams performing pretty well this season. No one can be compared with Monaco in Ligue 1. Leonardo Jardim is rotating squad, resting key players, and winning match after match. Remember, they came throw qualifications for Champions League, where they beat Villarreal, and we all know how strong are Spanish teams in European cups. Jardim came to Le Beaujoire almost with reserves, and won 0-1. They won PSG 3-1, and of course they won Tottenham on White Hart Lane with 1-2. They have some problems with defense for this match with Rennes, and Jardim will may be forced to move Fabinho from midfield to right back, or maybe we'll see one of wonderkids in his squad Almamy Toure what wouldn't be surprise for Portuguese. Falcao is back, played 81 minutes in Champions league, and it is almost unimportant who will play, him or Germaine, because both of them are playing solid. But anyway, the most important part of Monaco is midfield, with 2 defensive and 3 offensive midfielders and on those positions Jardim can rotate a lot. He has players like Traore, Silva, Lemar, Dirar, Moutinho, Boschilia, Bakayoko, Carillo, Lottin.. Rennes started season with lost against Nice (0-1), but already in this match they deserved more. They conceded goal from set piece and they were unlucky not to score. Then they won Nancy, drawed with Montpellier and in last round again added 3 points against Caen. With Gourcuff as coach, they looks pretty good. Also Gourcuff on the pitch is not injured (yet) and he is playing on really high level. In my opinion he is player for much bigger club, but injuries affected his career. Also N'tep is finally fit, and with him Rennes will be even more dangerous in attack. Anyway, in form as Monaco are right now. Specially in attack, they could be dangerous against every team in the world and even if Rennes knows to play careful and smart, specially in defence, I think that if not otherwise, Monaco will "open" them from free kick. Even if Rennes could start little bit defensively, I predict goals here. Odds on over 2,5 dropped to much and I won't touch them, but I see value in this odds for more then two goals of Monaco. They scored 10 times in first 4 rounds, and again we can not forget that they scored 3 times against PSG...
Betting Prediction: the number of goals will be Over 2.25 in the Full Time
