Monaco vs Caen
French Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 21st December 2016
Kick off at 19:50 UK Time
Venue: Stade Louis II, Monaco.
Thump! Take that, Monaco a team coasting week in and week out were taken out at home by Lyon and the team has come crashing a little bit back down to Earth with a 3-1 loss. Here is a team that score 3 goals on average a game a team that has scored 31 goals before the Lyon game at home alone, but they didn’t turn up and an inquiry was made immediately after the game. Now with 3 days rest they go again at home and surely they won’t mess up this time over Caen?
Caen are in 16th place but their form recently has improved where they have picked up 5 points from their last 12. But they are still partial to losing especially away from home. And that’s something that should be underlined because Caen have the worst away record in Ligue 1. From 8 games they have no wins, 1 draw and 7 losses, we could repeat that line all night and it wouldn’t sound better. They have only scored five goals on the road and have lost their last 4 games in a row.
We have to be brutally honest here, Caen have let in 4 goals against Lille and three against Montpellier, what hope do they have at a wounded Monaco who want to bounce back?
Monaco vs Caen: Head to Head Stats
There is one stand out stat here and that is from the last 8 fixtures home or away between these two 7 of them has ended in a draw. The only odd one out came in 2015 when Monaco ran out 3-0 winners at Caen. From these draws the final score line of 2-2 has repeated in half of these games. Caen has not beat Monaco in Stade Louis II for over 20 years.
Monaco vs Caen: Prediction
Usually this is a selection where Caen could cause a surprise, but Monaco despite their recent loss has been superb and we must remember Lyon are a very good team on their day. We think trends will be beaten and that Monaco can run out comfortable winners. They are 3/10 to do, so we will look into different markets.
