Starting Season on a Strong Note
Both teams had a different start to the season. Stade Rennais lost to SC Freiburg, while Monaco was victorious against RC Strasbourg. We expect a fine match as it has all the workings of a solid game with unexpected scores and odds.
Monaco Pushes for Another 3 Points
AS Monaco had a great start to the season after they beat Strasbourg 2-1 on the opening weekend. Although it wasn’t convincing for a top team, it was enough to kickstart their campaign with three points. In that case, we expect them to push for more as the week progresses.
We understand that it might be challenging to beat Paris Saint-Germain to the title but making it into the champion’s automatic qualification spots would do a lot.
Redemption for Game 1 at Rennais
Stade Rennais had a bad start to the season after they narrowly lost. They were a good side on the day, but eventually, the result didn’t go as they would have hoped, given that they were the favorites.
Rennais was dominant from the start of the game, but they couldn’t break the solid defensive line of Lorient, and the first half ended in 0-0. The game seemed to be going in the direction of the first half until Arthur Theate scored an own goal in the 65th minute, effectively gifting the away team all three points.
We expect Bruno Genesio to take his time to evaluate the match. Also, they would need to do better since they are playing a better team compared to Lorient. A win in this match would help push the team in the right direction and help them get over the disappointment of the first match.
