In the 25th round of Ligue 1, Strasbourg will host Monaco in another exciting match. Strasbourg is clearly in crisis, occupying 12th place with only 3 points advantage over the relegation zone. The team does not know the winning taste for 6 matches in a row and the prospects for the remaining part of the season are still grim. Monaco is currently third and its main goal is to protect its Champions League spot. It is unlikely that the team will fall out of top-6 but the distance between the team and the 6th placed Lens is only 3 points. Adolf Hutter made it clear that Monaco expects to participate in the Champions League next season which necessitates a certain level of concentration amid the decisive part of the season.

Strasbourg vs. Monaco Preview 

Strasbourg Preview

After a horrible run of 4 consecutive defeats in the framework of Ligue 1, Strasbourg managed to cling to a draw with Montpellier in the last round (2-2). The game of the team was not convincing, but getting a point is still a breath of fresh air for both players and the board. In general, Strasbourg is still yet to win in 2024, with their last win in Ligue 1 dated 20th of December. Patrick Viera admits that he puts a lot of hope into the new winter arrivals, such as Andrey Santos, but the youngsters are still yet to prove themselves in front of the demanding fans. In the worst-case scenario, there will be a lot of questions to the board and their approach to the management of football clubs, given the ongoing struggles of Chelsea and the potential relegation of Strasbourg.

Monaco Preview 

Monaco, despite its unstable game, and lack of concentration during the matches, proved to be a cohesive and adaptable team after a 0-0 draw with PSG in the last round of Ligue 1. Adolf Hutter brought a Mourinho-esque master class, emphasising counter attacking football, which ended in Monaco’s advantage in key metrics (xG, moments created, and big chances). The main question amid the upcoming match with Strasbourg is whether such a concentrated and well-established game was a one-match phenomenon or fans can expect such solid performances until the end of the season.

Betting Tips for Strasbourg vs. Monaco

Both Teams To Score

Ligue 1 is among the most successful championships in terms of both teams scoring in the matches and this match will hardly be an exception.

Both teams have favourable statistics in this regard, with 8 of 10 matches saw both teams scored. Unibet gives 1.61 for this Strasbourg vs. Monaco prediction.

Total Goals Over 2.5

Given that Strasbourg saw more than 2 goals in 5 out of 6 of its last matches and the team’s problems with defence, Monaco will clearly have its chances in front of the hosts’ net. At the same time, Monaco likes to put a show in its away matches, with the last 6 away matches saw at least 3 goals. Moreover, in the 3 consecutive head to head clashes, at least 3 goals were on the scoresheet. Strasbourg vs. Monaco odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 1.66.

Monaco Draw No Bet

Monaco is well-positioned to claim at least a draw in the match, given that the team did not lose in away matches for 5 matches in a row, with only 1 draw and 4 wins. Given the weak state of Strasbourg and its series of 6 matches without a win, the chances for Hutter’s team are more than positive. Unibet gives 1.51 for this Strasbourg vs. Monaco tip.
