Rennes entertain Monaco at Roazhon Park in a crucial game to secure a top-four spot in Ligue 1 on Friday.

The hosts have been undefeated in league fixtures since their 1-0 loss at Paris Saint-Germain in February and continued their winning ways with an impressive 3-2 win at Reims on Saturday.

They were eliminated from the UEFA Europa Conference League last month and, with only league fixtures to focus on, they'll be hoping to retain their third place in the league standings.

Monaco have made it three wins in a row, starting with an impressive 3-0 win against PSG last month. They secured a 2-1 win against Troyes last time around and will be looking to record their first win in their trip to northwest France since 2017.

Rennes vs Monaco Prediction

The game will see two of the league's top-scorers in Wissam Ben Yedder and Martin Terrier in action against one another, with both of them having 18 goals to their name. Both sides are enjoying one of their best spells in the league at the moment and will be keen to maintain their unbeaten streak.

The home side are unbeaten against the visitors at Friday's venue since 2017 and have 11 wins at home this season, including five in a row since January. The trio of Terrier, Benjamin Bourigeaud, and Gaetan Laborde look to be in good touch at the moment and should be able to put in another eye-catching performance here.
