Sports Mole looks ahead to this weekend's Ligue 1 encounter between AS Monaco and Rennes.

AS Monaco could potentially move up to second in the Ligue 1 table if they grab all three points in their clash against Rennes this weekend.

Claudio Ranieri's side are just five points adrift of leaders Paris Saint-Germain following their 1-0 victory over Nantes last Sunday.

They could move to within just one point of the current champions with a win at the weekend, while Rennes are just three points away from the top six, despite residing in 11th place.

The visitors have secured just one victory in their last six, with their latest match resulting in a 1-1 draw with Bordeaux.

Both sides have kept just five clean sheets in the league so far, which indicates that goals could be on the cards.
