Troyes vs Monaco Soccer Prediction Today
For Troyes, the departure is life or death. After a 1-1 draw against Montpellier on Matchday 37, the team lost their chance to escape from the relegation zone. Now, he struggles to have the right to play the repechage and thus have a new opportunity to secure his place in the First Division.
With 33 points (nine wins, six draws and 22 losses), Troyes is in the nineteenth (penultimate) position. He has a chance to overcome Toulouse, who are in eighteenth with 34 and will face Guingamp at home at the same time.
In the French Championship, the relegation zone has two categories. Class B is destined for the last two to go straight to Ligue 2. Class A is reserved for the third-to-last, who have the chance to play a knockout for survival in Ligue 1 with third-placed Second Division.
The current phase of Troyes, however, does not allow high hopes to their fans. In the last ten matches, the team only won once. Of the remaining nine, he lost seven and scored only two draws.
Coach Jean-Louis Garcia at least can count on practically all his cast at his disposal. The only doubt for the match this Saturday is midfielder Tristan Dingome (14 games in the French Championship 2017/2018, no goal). It depends on a new evaluation from the medical department to see if it will be released. If this happens, the reservation bank is your most likely destination.
With great difficulty, Monaco beat St. Etienne 1-0 at home in the thirty-seventh round. He thus achieved the 77 points (23 wins, eight draws and six losses), remaining in second place. A draw is enough this Saturday to ensure the right to compete in the 2018/2019 edition of the Champions League. Right reserved to the top three.
However, to secure the runner-up without depending on the rivals’ results, he has to defeat the Troyes. In an attempt to reach that goal, Portuguese coach Leonardo Jardim will not be able to count on Algerian midfielder Rachid Ghezzal (26 matches in the 2017/2018 French Championship, two goals). He was sent off in the match against St. Etienne and will have to comply with automatic suspension.
It will not, however, be the only problem. The Brazilian left-back Jorge (22 games, one goal) is another that can hardly act. He is injured and still depends on a new medical evaluation to know if he will be able to be available.
Attackers Stevan Jovetic (15 games, eight goals) and Balde Keita (23 games, eight goals) and reserve goalkeeper Diego Beneglio (three games) are also in the ward.
The pressure for victory should make Troyes take a more offensive stance for the match. Its performance throughout the year shows that it has no technical conditions to impose itself on its rival. Thus, it may end up facilitating the task of the Monegasque.
