Monaco are still looking to salvage something from this Ligue 1 season when they host Strasbourg at the Stade Louis II on Saturday night. Monaco fought back from one-goal down to secure a 1-1 home draw against Nice in midweek, with Benoit Badiashile scoring the equalizer just after the break. On the other hand, Strasbourg won 2-1 on the road at Toulouse last weekend thanks to goals from Ludovic Ajorque and Ibrahim Sissoko.

Betting Tips for the game
Monaco looked a bit better of late, having suffered just one defeat in their last six competitive outings. The Monegasques are undefeated in four games across all competitions at the moment, although the most recent two of these have ended in 1-1 draws. The most worrying thing is that Monaco are the only side in the league without victory on home soil after ten rounds.
Meanwhile, Strasbourg have only lost once in their last nine competitive games and are currently undefeated in five fixtures. During their recent run, Strasbourg managed some impressive wins against Nice in Ligue 1 and Marseille and Lyon in Coupe de la Ligue. Away from home, Strasbourg have suffered just one loss in their last ten games across all competitions.
Monaco hold the better head-to-head record in this tie, but Strasbourg are the in-form team at the moment. It’s hard to separate these two sides at the moment, so our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw at odds 3.50.

First Goalscorer odds
Radamel Falcao has been injured for a couple of weeks, but he is now back on the pitch. He is Monaco’s top scorer with just seven goals under his belt, but we still fancy him to increase his tally here. Our first goalscorer prediction is Radamel Falcao at odds 3.75.
