AS Monaco clash with Toulouse in Friday’s Ligue 1 fixture to determine which of the two teams can bounce back from the terrible mess they are in. The once contenders for the league title, Monaco are now on the 10th place in Ligue 1, have only one win and two draws in five matches in all competitions and are seven points short of the Europa League place. Toulouse are doing even worse they had one win and four defeats in their last five matches before winning on Tuesday against Nantes.
The two teams are separated by only three points in the table. In their win against Lens both goals were scored in the second half, and Monaco had to play for the majority of time with 10 men after Wallace got a red card on the 35th minute. Berbatov and Carrasco would be your main choices for the goalscorer market, while for Toulouse Ben Yedder and Pesic should cover that betting market.
Trejo, Matheus and Roman are all missing due to injury for Toulouse, while the visitors are still without Borja Lopez, Kondogbia and Kurzawa. Last time the two teams met Monaco won with 2-0 and if Ocampo replaces Wallace in the squad another result like this might be on the cards again. The bookmakers cannot seem to be able to pinpoint a clear winner even if Toulouse managed to win against Monaco in only two matches out of the last ten.
Both teams are not in one of their best form, but we hope Monaco can pull themselves together in time to end up winning and Bet365 gives them 2.60 odds for an outright win, on which we’re going to bet 8 units. Toulouse to win has 2.80 odds and another draw has 3.10 odds. Over 2.5 goals has 2.25 odds, and both teams have the same odds, 1.83, to win either half.
