Ligue 1 continues this weekend with yet another fascinating round of games that will only add to the excitement of the league. While PSG march towards the Ligue 1 title, the rest of the table has remained incredibly tight, with a single win often able to help a team rise up a number of places.
While the defending champions may have relinquished any chance of retaining their Ligue 1 crown, Monaco still remains one of France’s elite sides and despite the fact they may not clinch top spot, Les Monégasques look to have all but guaranteed Champions League football come the end of the season. After 28 games this season, Monaco have won 18, drawn six and only lost four times this year. Sat on 60 points, Monaco have scored 69 times and only conceded 30 times in return. While they may sit 14 points adrift of PSG, Monaco currently sit second in the table and have a 19 point buffer over fifth place. As for their recent form, Monaco have won five out of their last six matches in Ligue 1.
As for the visitors on Friday night, despite enjoying a successful start to the season, Strasbourg now find themselves at the heart of a relegation battle after a poor run of results. Currently sat in 15th position in the table, Strasbourg have only won eight of their 28 matches this season, drawing seven of those and losing the remaining 13. Conceding 49 goals and only scoring 32 in return, Strasbourg boasts the third worst goal difference in Ligue 1 currently. As for their recent form, in their last five appearances, they have not won in their last four, and have failed to find the net once in their last three matches.
