AS Monaco won again on Saturday, this time 3-0 at home to Stade Rennais. The latest victory marked seven wins in a row confirming Monaco’s best offensive record in Ligue 1 for 29 years, 13 points taken from a possible 15.

The Rennes game was the Red and White’s tenth competitive fixture of the season. While they lost the first of those against Fenerbahçe in the Champions League 3rd qualifying round, they have since gone nine matches unbeaten. In Ligue 1, the defeat of Rennes was their fourth win in a row, something they had not previously done since December 2014. In all competitions, Leonardo Jardim’s men have now won their last seven games, their best run since December 2004-January 2005 (also seven games).

The latest win puts ASM in the lead in France’s Ligue 1, three points ahead of PSG, Nice and Metz, all three on 10 points ahead of Sunday games.

Saturday’s game also allowed Radamel Falcao to get back on track with a goal in the 41st minute from a cross by Germain. Monaco remained very much on top of the game in the second half, and after Falcao and Germain were taken off for a rest, Lemar scored twice in added time. The next game is an away derby against Nice on Wednesday.
