AS Monaco beats Rennes

AS Monaco beats Rennes

By Stephanie Horsman - October 21, 2019

Monaco has won a dramatic victory over Rennes at home, pulling them out of the relegation zone, avoiding an unsatisfactory tie and keeping hope alive.

The Red and Whites started second to the bottom of the Ligue 1 standings on Sunday, but an early goal in the third minute by Wissam Ben Yedder perked things up and set the stage for what turned out to be an exciting match.

Rennes followed up less than 10 minutes later with a goal by Faitout Maouassa evening the score. After a rollercoaster of a first half, which saw a thwarted goal due to an offside call on M’Baye Niang just before the break, Rennes came back strong and

Adrien Hunou gave them their second goal minutes into the second half.

Things weren’t looking great for Monaco at this point, until Leicester City loan Islam Slimani levelled the score with a spectacular goal in the 56th minute.

The game went into extra time and at three minutes in, Ben Yedder secured the win scoring the final goal of the game.

The win puts Monaco in 14th position and two points clear of the bottom three.
