Saint-Etienne vs Monaco
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 3rd November 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
The Ligue 1 weekend finishes with this game and both sides will be looking for victory.
Saint Etienne are in 12th place with 15 points and Monaco also have 15 points which just adds some more spice to this game. The home side come into this match 4 games unbeaten although they drew their last match against Amiens 2-2 which ended a 3-game winning streak.
At home they have won 6 points from their 15, which is a poor return and in fact have only won once at home so far, 3 of their five games have ended in draws.
Monaco are back, kind of. They are no longer the team fighting relegation and this is mostly because of their brilliant purchase of Wissam Ben Yedder who has already scored many goals since arriving from Sevilla. The club have won 4 of their last 5 games and their last game ended in an impressive win over Nantes who themselves are in 2nd place.
Still whilst Monaco have improved fivefold, they still tend to struggle on the road with just one win this season- the match against Nantes. The club’s biggest problem has been scoring on the road and they have just 4 so far this season.

Saint-Etienne vs Monaco: Prediction
Monaco have had a decent record coming here in the past and last season as any follower of Ligue 1 would know was a nightmare one for the club, so even if Saint Etienne got wins, there were reasons.
We feel that Monaco are in a good place and can win this game, spurred on by their great win at Nantes. The team’s mission is to finish in a Champions League place and the confidence is really there, it is back, we think they are good for the victory and also for Ben Yedder to show his qualities once again.
