Fresh from a top six finish in the previous campaign, Strasbourg get their latest Ligue 1 campaign underway on Saturday by welcoming Monaco at Stade de la Meinau.

They finished up last season as number 6, and Strasbourg now prepares to take on Monaco. The latter finished as number 3 in the Ligue 1.

We are bound to see an exciting game on Saturday as both Strasbourg and Monaco are looking to add some much-needed points to their respective accounts.

Strasbourg only average a modest one goals per game in their last ten matches in this tournament, in which they scored ten goals. They also conceded 11 for an average of 1.1 per game. They kept their opponents from scoring four times.

Monaco scored 25 goals, conceded ten and fought their way to three clean sheets in their last ten games.

Strasbourg vs Monaco Prediction

Strasbourg won four of their past six matches on home soil in the Ligue 1, where they also drew twice and went undefeated. They scored nine goals and conceded five times.

Europe is the dream target for Strasbourg, while a top half finish is the least the visitors must accomplish for their latest Ligue 1 campaign.

Monaco are unbeaten in their previous three matches, winning 4-2 against Brest, before sharing the points in a 2-2 draw with Lens. Another draw followed, this time 1-1 against PSV Eindhoven.In their last six Ligue 1 away matches, Monaco won four, as they've also drawn and lost once, scoring 13 while also conceding eight times.

Monaco would probably consider anything lower than at least a second place finish a disappointment. The hosts have one eye on a title challenge and know a good start is imperative.

Head-to-head encounters tend to bring out the best in both sides, and we fully expect the trend to continue, when Strasbourg renew Monaco their acquaintance.
