Troyes vs Monaco
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 29th August 2021
Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade de l’Aube.
It’s not been a great start for Troyes who after 3 games are yet to win this season.
After defeats against PSG and Clermont they did earn their first point of this new campaign by drawing 1-1 away to Strasbourg. The worry though is that they are conceding too many goals, it has been 5 so far and this fixture at the weekend will not be easy for them. Troyes come into this game in 18th place.
However Monaco will be the bigger name does that matter in the present, because Monaco are in 19th place and are also yet to win this season. Against Lens last weekend they were poor in losing 2-0 at home and Monaco are not creating enough chances, for example they had just 2 shots on target against Lens.
Away from home Monaco have played one game so far and they lost that 1-0 against Lorient, on a whole Monaco have been a real let down so far.
Troyes vs Monaco: Head to Head
- The last time the teams played this fixture was back in 2018 when Monaco won 3-0.
- Troyes have not beaten Monaco home or away since 2012.
- The last 3 meetings have seen over 2.5 goals.
Troyes vs Monaco Prediction
Monaco are odds on for this game but is there any real justification in this price given the start they have had? Yes Monaco will start to win games and pick up points and yes they could win this one and should do with the players they have.
But maybe Monaco are not playing for the coach, there seems to be something not right behind the scenes. This is why their price has no value at all.
For us the best option is to back Troyes on the double chance, and we must remember Troyes are a team who up their game when the bigger teams visit, so this may suit us.
