AS Monaco – Stade Rennes – can this game called derby eighth finals of the French League Cup, because Monaco in second place in the championship standings, and this team is a successful game and the Champions League, while Rennes very good fifth, provided that they have sensory 12 points less than its host. Current Form Rennes is variable and this team is in the rhythm of defeat but victory, while the last was nevertheless defeat away to Lyon. Monaco to win one knows for eight rounds, with the recent in the series put the defeat in the Champions League in Leverkusen, which meant nothing. In mid-September, these rivals played a league game in the Principality of Monaco celebrated the safe 3: 0th Prior to that, three related match ends 1: 1. Start: 14.12.2016. – 20:05 CET
Monaco is the next big rush when the championship comes and undefeated as of mid-October, and exactly two months. They played in this period eight games and only drew twice and won six times, and in fact showed remarkable efficiency because they have achieved 28 goals in those six games. Just as in the first victory against Montpellier conceded two goals, but the other triumphs have preserved a clean sheet. Already in the qualification for the Champions League could see that this could be a good season for Monaco and managed to eliminate Fenerbahce and Villarreal, and then in the group stage for the first five rounds were undefeated until the last round when they lost in Leverkusen match that nothing not decided.
The composition is logically been changed, far different than that first outclassed Bastia at home with 5: 0, but then something made and in Bordeaux, where they won 4: 0th Cracking the striker Falcao and of these nine goals scored and five, however, is unlikely to play on and in this game where you should run out of the combined composition, similar to Leverkusen, with Fabinho not eligible to play because of suspension.
Probable lineups Monaco: De Sanctis – Toure, Raggi, Jemerson, Diallo – N’Doram, Moutinho, Boschilia, Dirar – Carrillo, Jean
Stick to Rennes at the top of the table, although their results lately variable. Mostly it is due to the matches at home and away courts, because it is at Rennes diametrically opposite. No team in France in which the difference is more pronounced in the results of matches in Rennes and guests, because in their stadium have still no defeat and with leaders Nizza are the most successful host league, while at the same time with just one win and only four points, one of worst of visiting teams. Lately lose all away, and the domestic have two victories, after they drew with Angers.
It should be noted that the last three, two performances were very tough and they played at PSG and in the last round at Lyon, and in between they lost at Lorient. Between these matches are in front of their fans winning Toulouse and St Etienne to nil. Exactly the same composition was played in the victory 2: 0 over St.Etienneom and 1: 0 defeat at Lyon. Now the team will change and we expect lineup as against Lorient in the previous round League Cup.
Probable lineups Rennes: COST – Čavar, Gnagnon, Armand, Baal – huno, Janvier, Said, Henrique – Diakhaby, Erasmus
AS Monaco – Stade Rennes TIP
Monaco is on fire, although the field will not be exactly the composition that is responsible for a lot of goals, but these reserves can play without pressure and we expect them to be offensive, while Rennes away bad game and their defense is likely to capitulate, and perhaps in the attack something and manage to do.
