Monaco 2-1 Rennes

Goals: Ben Yedder (35e, SP) and Volland (72e) for ASM // Terrier (16e) for SRFC

The duo Ben Yedder-Volland is back.

AS Monaco won against Rennes thanks to its two attackers (2-1), this Wednesday evening, and is slowly approaching the top 5 and the podium. As is often the case in recent weeks, Genesio’s men quickly made their opponents understand that they were determined to try to play the game. If the first thrill came from a Monegasque head signed Diop, the domination was Rennes during the first twenty minutes. This was even rewarded with a splendid goal scored by Terrier after a one-two support on Laborde near the surface and a clinical finish in front of Nübel. (0-1, 16e). After this deserved opening of the scoring, the ASM has recovered, without being really dangerous, but taking advantage of the Breton gifts to approach the surface of Gomis. And to obtain a penalty awarded after consultation of the VAR for a hand of Traoré and transformed by the specialist Ben Yedder (1-1, 35e).

In an open meeting, the two teams could have flipped the scoreboard on their side, even if Rennes were less in sight after the break and Monaco more threatening. Which ended up paying off as the last quarter of an hour approached. It all started with a ball saved by Ben Yedder along the touchline before Diop saw his brushed shot taken victoriously from the header by Volland (2-1, 72e). A big blow to the head of the Rennes, less inspired, but very close to equalizing in the wake of a resumption of Santamaria failing on the bar of Nübel, who will not have been worried by the too kind attempts of the Breton attackers. No, Rennes will not spend the holidays on the podium and see the ASM return to two units in the standings.

The battle for European places promises to be very, very fierce in 2022.
