Strasbourg vs Monaco Prediction & Betting tips
The 29th round of the Ligue 1 kicks off in Strasbourg on Friday-evening, where reigning champion in the second place hunts against the scorching RC Strasbourg. Does the home team know this season to surprise both PSG and AS Monaco?
With 22 points from fourteen home games this season RC Strasbourg hears this season among the ten best-performing teams in home, but it goes wrong for the team of Thierry Laurey. Only Troyes and Dijon perform slightly worse in away games, of which the former even has an away match. After the elimination in the quarterfinals by third-divisioner Chambly (obviously not in Strasbourg) Coupe de France, only ten games are scheduled this season, all in Ligue 1. With only three points ahead of the relegation zone, it can still go wrong for the team from Laurey, so it is necessary to get points in the upcoming matches.
The man who will be looked into in the upcoming match is Jean-Eudes Aholou. the defensive midfielder of Ivorian origin scored five times this season, including three of the last seven goals in the matches in which he played, making him the top scorer of Strasbourg. The last three games did not manage to score the men of Le Racing. Despite the fact that the last 33 goal attempts did not result in a goal, Laurey’s team still belongs to the top five Ligue 1 teams in terms of turning odds into goals.
After the loss of both Olympique Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais in the previous round, the team of Leonardo Jardim hit a four-run gap with the number three Olympique Marseille. Because the chances of winning the league title for Les Rouges et Blances have been out of business for several months now, the Monegasken’s focus in the remainder of the season is on two things: second behind PSG and thus placement for the Champions League safely and finally win PSG again to win the Coupe de la Ligue.
One of the strongest points of the Monegasken this season is the percentage of chances that are converted into goals. With 244 goal attempts, resulting in 69 goals to date, the Monegasken have the highest conversion rate of the entire Ligue 1 (28.3%). Top scorer on the side of the Monegasken is still Radamel Falcao. Even though the Colombian participated in only 20 league games this season and he will not play this week yet, he is still third on the top scorers list of Ligue 1.
