Strasbourg – Monaco Match Prediction | 23-08-2019

Though based in Monaco, Les Rouges et Blances as they are commonly referred to play their games in the French football league system. Members of the top tier Ligue 1, Monaco play their home matches at the Stade Louis II in Fontvieille in front of 18,500 people. The Principality club boasts a turbulent history, which saw Monaco reach the highest heights of both domestic and international scene, but also get relegated to the amateur leagues at the very beginnings and to Ligue 2 in 2010-11 season.

They have also welcomed back a few players from long-term injury recently with Rony Lopes scoring on his first start against Rennes and Stevan Jovetic coming on as a late sub against Nice on Wednesday. Monaco are slowly but surely improving under Thierry Henry, with the additions of Cesc Fbregas and Naldo adding much-needed experience to the side.

Their wins in this streak of victories have come against some pretty formidable sides with Nice, Lyon and Strasbourg all being beaten before Ligue 2 Grenoble were edged in the cup on Wednesday. They finished 15th last year but have been in scintillating form this season with wins over Lyon, Rennes and Lille making it an already memorable season. And they have been coming up trumps so far though with 16 goals in their last nine games. This has raised the spirits in Strasbourg as they now have the possibility of qualifying for the Europa League if they play their cards right. Strasbourg have been on a fantastic run recently with four wins on the trot raising them to 7th in Ligue 1.

Reason For Monaco vs Strasbourg Betting Tips

Nice, Marseille and Rennes were all matched pace for pace but les Monegasques can have no respite as they have another difficult challenge here. Monaco have drawn each of their last three matches 1-1 but these were all against members of last years top-eight, so they should be pretty happy with these results. Monaco have conceded five goals in their last five matches, but this is a stark improvement on the five they conceded in the three games previous.

Nacer Chadli got selected for both the Belgian and the Moroccan national football team. With 187cm he is physically very strong and despite his length Chadli is known for his agility as well. Eventually Chadli decided to play for the Belgian team where he made his debut in March 2011.Chadli is a offensive midfieldier which prefers to play on the right side of the pitch.

Monaco will be aiming to put an end to their four-game winless run when they host Strasbourg at their Stade Louis II on Matchday 21. However, seeing that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the relegation strugglers. In four of their last five meetings in the French elite division Monaco emerged triumphant. Les Rouges et Blancs are on a four-game winless run in the French top flight and they are still sitting in the danger zone in the Ligue 1 standings ahead of Saturdays football match. In their last meeting at Stade Louis II Monaco crushed Strasbourg 3-0, with the likes of Rony Lopes and Radamel Falcao (two goals) scoring for les Rouges et Blancs. Le Racing, on the other hand, look unstoppable at the moment and they are on a five-match winning run in all competitions.

Stevan Jovetic made his first appearance in the first team for a few months as a sub against Nice but twisted his knee and may now face a few more weeks on the sidelines. He will have good company though with Adama Traore, Almamy Toure, Djibril Sidibe, Pietro Pellegri, Andrea Raggi, Nacer Chadli, Willem Geubbels, Ronael Pierre-Gabriel, Kevin Ndoram, Jordi Mboula and Jean-Eudes Aholou all still unavailable.

Monaco vs Strasbourg Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

Strasbourg have won their last four games and even with Monaco improving, we think the visitors will get the win here, as they did in October. Monaco have won four of the last five clashes with Strasbourg but lost the most recent game, which finished 2-1 to the Alsatians in October. Strasbourg arent the relegation battlers they have been and currently sit twelve places above les Monegasques.
