Strasbourg is welcoming AS Monaco to Stade de la Meinau in round 28 in the French Ligue 1.
Strasbourg is undefeated in their last 3 games, but they have won only 1 of those 3 games. Strasbourg has scored 3 goals during this streak, while they scored 35 goals overall this season. Defensively, Strasbourg is not the worst team in the league, but they have conceded 41 goals which are not great. With 30 points, Strasbourg is now in 15th place, and they are only 5 points away from the relegation zone. Ajorque is the leading goalscorer for Strasbourg with 11 goals, while Diallo added 7 goals. Simakan and Aholou are both injured for Strasbourg. In their last game against Lille on the road, Strasbourg has had only 32% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and only 67% of the correct passes. After getting ahead in the 36th minute, Strasbourg was defending well, but they conceded a goal in the 86th minute, and this game has ended in a 1-1 draw. There is still a lot of work left for Strasbourg this season, but they are doing well, and they are outside the relegation zone, which is their only goal at the moment.
Monaco has been an absolute fire lately, and they haven’t lost a game since before the Christmas break, 13 games in total. Monaco has won 11 of those 13 games, and they have scored 4 goals in their last 2 games while conceding 0 goals. Monaco was hosting Brest in their last Ligue 1 games, and they have had an impressive 63% of ball possession, 9 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 3 big chances created, and 88% of the correct passes. Monaco was attacking, but they couldn’t find a way to the net. In the second half, Monaco has scored 2 quick goals, and they have deservedly won this game 2-0. With another win under their belt, Monaco is in 4th place with 55 points, 56 scored goals, and 37 conceded goals, and they are only 4 points away from the title. Volland and Ben Yedder have each scored 13 goals so far this season, while Golovin added 6 assists. Martins and Geubbels are injured, while Pellegri is still questionable. I said at the beginning of the season that Monaco will be the title contestant, and they are, it just took them a while longer to adjust to coach Kovac’s ideas, but now that they are used to it, Monaco is firing on all cylinders.
Monaco hasn’t lost in their 13 games, and they are on a 7-game winning streak away from home. I will ride this Monaco winning streak as long as it lasts, and I’m not sure it will end soon.
