Rennes preview: Hoping for European football next season

In the last six games in the league, Rennes have two wins, two draws, and two losses, so their form has clearly been quite inconsistent recently. Still, they remain in pursuit of one of the places that would secure them European football next season as they currently sit in eighth place, four points behind Nice in fifth.

Meanwhile, Rennes are free of injuries and suspensions at the moment.

Player to watch: Takumi Minamino

The Japanese winger has been very impactful for Monaco in Ligue 1 so far, with seven goals and five assists, and we can see him doing well against Rennes as well.

Will Minamino score in the first half?

Six of the seven goals that Minamino scored in the league this season came in the first halves and three of them were the first goal of the respective matches. So, we could see Minamino scoring the first goal in this game too.
