Monaco suffered yet another defeat this weekend, against Stade Rennais FC, who started the game two points above 18th placed Monaco.
Rennes took the lead late in the first half, followed by Monaco’s Raggi being sent off. Falcao scored early in the second half to level the game, but Rennes scored again in the 77th minute.
