Troyes vs Monaco
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 19th May 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de l’Aube (Troyes).
Troyes face a huge game here where if they win the best they can hope for is to finish 18th and end up in a play-off match with a Ligue 2 side to fight for their Ligue 1 status. Things become complicated because if Toulouse beat Guingamp then it doesn’t matter, Troyes will be relegated anyway.
In order for Troyes to have any chance to remain in Ligue 1 they will have to beat the mighty Monaco who are in 2nd position. At least for Troyes they have home advantage but this will be a very difficult three points to obtain. Troyes overall form is poor but the club are fighting and proved that with a recent 1-1 draw away to Montpellier last weekend. At home they beat Caen in their last game here which stopped a 3 game losing streak.
Monaco need to win to claim 2nd place and Lyon and Marseille have still not given up the chase for a runners up spot. But Monaco will be the favourites to finish in that position. However the club have faced recent problems and only gained 7 points from their last 15 available. The good news is that they have found some of their form and come into this game having won their last 2 matches in a row.

Troyes vs Monaco: Prediction
We are expecting this to be an open game with lots of goals. Troyes will come out and attack but they don’t have the quality to go toe to toe with Monaco and this could turn into a frenzied game. Monaco to win and score many goals.
