Monaco vs Saint-Etienne
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 12th May 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).
Monaco could still miss out on Champions League football next season as they try to maintain 3rd place for a qualification spot or finish in the runners up spot for an automatic place. There is just one point separating them from 2nd place Lyon but at the same time Marseille are just one point behind Monaco that is why the visit of St Etienne must end in 3 points to the home side.
Monaco’s 2-1 away win against Caen was welcomed with open arms given their recent poor form, before the Caen win they had not won a game for almost a month.
St Etienne are involved in a titanic battle themselves for 5th position and a Europa League place. They are in 6th and just two points behind Rennes. The club were in great form which included 3 wins in a row before they lost against Bordeaux last weekend and this was quite a blow to their European chances next season. But they have another chance, the bad news it’s against a top side like Monaco. St Etienne’s away form is excellent and they come into this game having won their last 3 matches in a row. They have also drawn to Lyon 1-1 and proved a tough team to beat over the past few weeks.
Monaco vs Saint-Etienne: Head to Head

Monaco vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
