Monaco vs Strasbourg
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 27th September 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco)
Monaco lost touch slightly with the top places as they were defeated by Rennes last weekend losing 2-1 away from home.
You get the sense that after a couple of poor seasons Monaco have turned the corner and could be a danger this season. If so they will need to be very strong at home and they will be the favourites to collect all three points for this game.
Monaco’s last home game ended in a 2-1 win over Nantes and the club are in sixth place. They need to score more goals if they want to become a force though.
Strasbourg are in 18th and have 1 win from 4 games and lost the other three. It has been a nightmare start for the club though they did win their last game. That victory came against Dijon though who have been the poorest side in the league so far and even then Strasbourg could only manage 1 goal.
On the road the club have lost to Saint Etienne and there would be no shame in that result, but maybe one could point the finger at them for losing against newly promoted Lorient and they shipped 3 goals in that game.

- Last season Strasbourg won this match 3-1.

Monaco vs Strasbourg: Prediction
Strasbourg have caused Monaco difficulties in recent games but we don’t see that at the weekend.
Times have changed for the home side and it would be a shock to see them lose or even draw this one. We believe that not only can Monaco win the game that they will also score quite a few goals against a very poor defence.
For added value we will back that Monaco get off to a good start and have them winning at half time.
