Full Event Away -0.50 (AH) @ 1.917 9/10 PINNACLE
Football / Fra. Ligue 1 / Kick off: 15 Dec 2017, 20:45
St Etienne: Awful form and close to relegation zone (Recent form: L D L D L)
St Etienne are 15th in the table with 20 points or only 2 over relegation zone, so under huge pressure. In last round lost against Marseille with 0-3 away at home, while in previous home match finished 1-1 with Nantes. Last win was on 14.10 against outsider Metz with 3-1. After that made 8 games from league and 9 from all competitions without a win. Even at home are struggling and didn’t win in last 4 matches. In this period even had a huge home defeat against their biggest rival – Lyon with 0-5, which was humiliating. Some good news around the squad are that Hamouma is the only, who is still out, while Gabriel is back in the squad, so almost full squad available.
Monaco: Improved form, but small chances for the title (Recent form: L W L W W )
Monaco made an amazing campaign in previous season with a title in Ligue 1 and 1/2 final in Champions League. But in this season their problems are much biggest as already are out of Champions League as finished last in their group and even without a victory, while in last game from the tournament lost with 2-5 vs Porto. After this defeat had two home games, which was has been won with 3-2 over Troyes in Ligue 1 and 2-0 over Caen in Coupe de la Ligue. Some players like Jovetic, Serrano, Tielemans and Traore are still with some injury problems and doubts, but soon will return in the squad.
Stade Geoffroy-Guichard will host Friday’s football match between Saint-Etienne and Monaco. Les Verts kicked off the new Ligue 1 campaign in style, but they do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment. Saint-Etienne are on an eight-game winless run in the national championship ahead of the visit of Monaco and they will be without suspended duo Dabo – Lacroix against les Rouges et Blancs. Leonardo Jardim’s men came from behind to beat Troyes in their last league fixture and thanks to the triumph they managed to keep their hopes of defending the Ligue 1 title alive. Monaco have been in a much better form of late than Saint-Etienne of late and we predict the visitors will pick up all three points from Friday’s clash. Taking everything into account, les Rouges et Blancs are likely to extend their winning run in the league to three games.
