A shock defeat to Lorient has checked the visitors' hopes of mounting a straightforward top four challenge this term, while their hosts came out on the right side of a result with Strasbourg - but both will hope to be laughing with a three-point prize at the end of the day.

Team news & rosters

PositionMonaco roster
Goalkeepers Nübel, Didillon, Liénard
Defenders Vanderson, Maripán, Badiashile, Disasi, Henrique, Jakobs, Okou, Aguilar, Matsima, Marcelin, Barreca, Sarr
Midfielders Diop, Lucas, Matazo, Golovin, Minamino, Fofana, Akliouche, Lemaréchal, Magassa, Pelé

Forwards

Boadu, Ben Yedder, Diatta, Volland, Embolo, Musaba, Geubbels, Martins

With Strasbourg downed, and a new recruit in the shape of Malang Sarr on board, matters are looking rosy at Monaco so far this term - and they will hope they can push on once again this year.

Though the Qatar 2022 World Cup will check any momentum they may build, they will know that early wins will be crucial to whatever challenge they mount, with Wissem Ben Yedder likely to be keen to get his eye in once more.

Predicted Monaco starting XI: Nubel; Vanderson, Disasi, Maripan, Henrique; Fofana, Lucas; Diatta, Diop, Martins; Ben Yedder.

PositionRennes roster
Goalkeepers Alemdar, Gomis, Mandanda, Damergy, Salin
Defenders Rodon, Truffert, Badé, Theate, Belocian, Assignon, Omari, Meling, Traoré, G. Doué
Midfielders Ugochukwu, Santamaria, Bourigeaud, Tait, Majer, D. Doué
Forwards Terrier, Guirassy, Sulemana, Doku, Tchaouna, Kalimuendo, Laborde, Abline

Defeat to Lorient is not quite the slap in the face Rennes supporters might feel it is as a result, but it certainly underlines their need to knuckle down and get over the line in such games this term.

It will be the small results as much as the big ones that shape their season, and with a cast of players jockeying for the World Cup - including loan recruit Joe Rodon in defence - they will be keen to prove they can cut the mustard once more.

Predicted Rennes starting XI: Mandanda; Traore, Rodon, Theate, Truffert; Majer, Santamaria, Tait; Bourigeaud, Terrier, Doku.
