In the previous Ligue 1 season Strasbourg put up a great performance. Team finished at the 6th spot, one step away from the European competitions zone. Julien Stephan's men managed to beat Lens, Lyon and Nantes by a few points. During the pre-season team played six games, but put up an inconsistent performance. However, Strasbourg managed to beat Liverpool (3:0).
Monaco played more friendly matches during the summer. However, Monegasques managed to win only one game - against Portimonense (2:0). Philippe Clement's team also suffered two defeats and all other matches finished as draws. The Red-Whites played against Inter (2:2) and Porto (1:2). In the previous season Monacogot off to a slow start, but Monegasques managed to finish the season at the 3rd spot, just two points behind the 2nd position.
In three of four latest head-to-head matches only one team scored
Two of three latest head-to-head matches ended with a 1:0 score
Monaco failed to win the first half in four latest matches
We are expecting a match between two even opponents. Opponents finished the previous Ligue 1 season close to each other. In the first match of a new season teams will probably score many goals.
Our prediction - total over 2.5 goals
We think that Monegasques are slight favourites in the upcoming match. In the previous season Monaco proved that they are a team of high stature. Club will try to earn the medals once again and in our opinion, Strasbourg won't have many chances to win.
Our second bet - Monaco to win the match
