After two months without winning away from home, Monaco are back on track in exports. Very solid, the club from the Rock won at Rennes (1-2) on Saturday late afternoon, on the 15th day of Ligue 1. With this victory, the Monegasques snatch second place from Nice, ahead of their match against Reims (Sunday at 13 p.m.). Better still, they are three points behind Paris Saint-Germain, before they host Nantes at 21 p.m.

With a Breton team still on alternating current, Monaco accelerated in the second half, after an insipid first half. Right-back Vanderson opened the scoring with the flat of his foot, after a good tempo pass from Folarin Balogun (51′, 0-1). Sent off in the meantime after a second booking (75'), the Brazilian watched from the bench as his team's second goal was scored by captain Youssouf Fofana on the counter (85', 0-2) in the middle of a Rennes defence that was disorganised despite the numerical superiority.

Rennes disappointing once again

Like the first goalscorer, the French international was also penalised just after scoring, conceding a penalty converted by Benjamin Bourigeaud (90', 1-2). In a crazy final quarter of an hour, Rennes pushed for an equaliser, but goalkeeper Philipp Köhn got in the way of Arthur Theate (78'), Amine Gouiri (90' + 1) and Mahamadou Nagida (90' + 3).

But this too late awakening was not enough for Rennes, who were once again too inconsistent offensively. As a symbol of this attacking apathy, Ludovic Blas and Arnaud Kalimuendo, who were not very prominent, were whistled when they came off on the hour mark. The Bretons, beaten for the fourth time in five Ligue 1 games, are 12th and could, depending on the other results of the 15th matchday, be ten points off the European places. At this rate, it will first be a question of ensuring its maintenance.
