Monaco vs Saint-Etienne
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 23rd December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).

There was relief for Monaco last weekend as they stopped their 3 game losing streak by beating Dijon. But there was still hints of a problem given that they only beat the team in bottom place 1-0.

The win though sees Monaco in seventh place and they have 26 points and it was an important victory, bit the pressure remains if they want to keep up with the top 3 as they are seven points behind, so another win is needed in midweek.

Although Monaco lost their last home game it was their first of the season and they have been strong at home and have the 2nd best home record in Ligue 1. They have earned 17 points from a possible 24.

Saint Etienne drew their fifth game of the season last weekend after drawing 2-2 with Nimes. It means that they have no defeats in their last five but have drawn 4 of those games.

With a win they would stay in 14th place but could go 8 points clear of the bottom three, in a season where it looks likely they will be fine.

Saint Etienne have got a good recent record over Monaco and like coming to this ground and even though they have struggled at times this season in the past month they have proven a hard team to beat.

Saint Etienne will ask many questions of Monaco and the value here could be backing the away side on the handicap.
