Monaco vs Troyes – Ligue 1.
Stade Louis II, Monaco – 20 February, 19:00.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
Monaco can consider themselves lucky for having Troyes for opponents this weekend. This is mainly because of fact that they have a lot of injured ( 6 at the moment ) and three suspended players for this game. Some of those players are vital for Monaco’s performance, like Joao Moutinho, Fabio Coentrao, J.Toulalan etc. Troyes are definitely the worst team in the league with only 14 points from 26 matches. They are on pretty good way to achieve the negative record when it comes to total number of points in Ligue 1. Still, I find odds on home victory very decent actually 2/5, which could bring some nice profit if backed with maximum stake. Also Monaco to win HT and FT is great option. Surprisingly Monaco were not able to beat Troyes in first round this season. That match ending in very boring 0 – 0 draw.
Monaco are currently holding 2nd place on Ligue 1 table pretty convincingly. They are 6 points ahead of Nice and St Etienne and with honestly speaking easy schedule in next 5 weeks, they will have great chance to seal the deal. Head manager Leonardo Jardim could be considered as real refreshment when it comes to Ligue 1. This coach is forcing very offensive style which is not characteristic for French teams. Bernardo Silva and T.Lemar are obviously enjoying this style as they are having great season.
Troyes are still not mathematically out of Ligue 1. They are 13 points behind the safe zone, but chances are minimal because of their team quality. Financial crisis could be reason number one for disastrous season for this team with total goal difference -34 so far. Still, they have managed to cause upset and beat Gazelec Ajaccio last weekend 3 – 2.
