Monaco vs Saint Etienne Prediction and Betting Tip Preview

Ligue 1

Monaco vs Saint Etienne – Ligue 1: These last rounds of the Ligue 1 will have a

lot of motives of interest, since the European question to the maintenance question on the top division of French football.

But the match between Monaco and Saint-Étienne will, really, be the match that touches two of the most interesting positions on that race.

For AS Monaco, the objective is confirming their presence on the Champions League. Leonardo Jardim’s team had defined, for the current season, a season of transition, between what they achieved last week (title and semi-finals of the Champions League) and what they intend to achieve in the future, especially some good performances on the Champions League.

That was almost accomplished in a flawless fashion, except for this final stretch of Ligue 1, where their safe position on the top 3 ended up being uncertain, taking into consideration they have only won 2 of the last 6 matches they’ve played.

It was the victory in Caen, by the minimum margin, that allowed Monaco to come into this penultimate round with an advantage, after the draw in Amiens and two heavy losses away from home with Paris Saint-Germain (1-7) and Guingamp (1-3).

Now, they need to win in order to depend solely on themselves, without depending on Marseille’s results.

In turn, Saint-Étienne was able to turn this season into a rollercoaster ride, with the team starting off the season with a very positive mindset, after a failure on the relationship between Óscar Garcia and the board, that led to them sinking on the league table and then recovering, under the command of Jean Louis Gasset, until being on the fight for a European spot.

Monaco vs Saint Etienne – Betting Tip and Prediction:

In case they win, this weekend, they maintain their window of opportunity open, with the 5th place offering them a spot in the Europa League, a competition where Les Verts are comfortable, before taking the desired leap – complicated – to the Champions League.

Between two teams who want to win, this encounter presents a lot of insurances in terms of goals, even because the draw should be bad for both of them.
