- The Rennes game was the Red & Whites' 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).
- AS Monaco have 13 points on the board after the first five matches of Ligue 1, equalling the total they had amassed at this stage in 2013/14. Thirteen is also the number of goals scored by the Red & Whites in these first five league games, the club's highest total at this stage of the season since 1987/88 (14 goals in five matches).
- Ours is the only side - along with OGC Nice - still unbeaten in Ligue 1 this season (ahead of Sunday's match between Montpellier HSC and OGC Nice).
- AS Monaco are unbeaten in their last seven home games against Rennes in Ligue 1 (five wins, two draws). Their last top-flight defeat against the Bretons at the Stade Louis-II was back on 31 March 2008 (1-2).
- Our players have now lost just six of their last sixty home matches in Ligue 1 since earning promotion back to the top division in 2013/14 (32 wins, 22 draws), with a record of 53.3% wins, 36,66% draws and 10% defeats.
- AS Monaco have found the net in their last 15 matches in Ligue 1. You have to go back to 28 February of this year and the goalless draw at Nantes for the last time the Red & Whites failed to score in a top flight game. At home, this stat is even more impressive: the team have netted in every one of their last 20 Ligue 1 games at the Louis-II, the best run of any side currently. The last time they failed to get on the scoresheet in a home match was on 30 August 2015, against PSG (0-3).
- Thomas Lemar scored his first double in Ligue 1 with his only two shots on target of the game. He registered seven attempts against Rennes, only Maxwel Cornet (9 v Dijon) has had more in a Ligue 1 game this season. Lemar has also found the net three times in his last two appearances for Monaco in all competition, as many as in his previous 34!
- Eight of Radamel Falcao's twelve goals in Ligue 1 have come at home. Similarly, eight of the Columbian's goals in the top division have come in the first half. El Tigre scored against Rennes with his first shot of the game.
- Almamy Touré's three assists in Ligue 1 have come from crosses, while Kévin N’Doram laid on his first assist in Ligue 1 on only his second appearance.
- Christian Gourcuff has travelled to Monaco nine times without winning as a Ligue 1 manager (one draw, eight defeats). The Breton coach has only taken his team to one other club on more occasions without winning, namely Bordeaux (ten times).
