Rennes 2-2 Monaco: Radamel Falcao scores twice to boost visitors' survival hopes
Last Updated: 01/05/19 8:38pm
Radamel Falcao rescued struggling Monaco with two second-half goals in a 2-2 draw at Rennes on Wednesday.
The hosts, who beat Paris Saint-Germain in a dramatic French Cup final last weekend, raced into a 2-0 lead after just nine minutes as quick moves were finished off by striker Adrien Hunou.
But Monaco hit back through Falcao's diving header (69) and superb scissor-kick volley (75), the veteran Colombia striker taking his tally to 14 goals.
The visitors move up to 16th place in Ligue 1 - four points outside the relegation zone with four games left - but face a difficult end to the league campaign with fourth-placed Saint-Etienne visiting on Sunday, before tough trips to Nimes and local rival Nice.
Rennes are in 11th place and have qualified for the Europa League through their cup triumph.
