Istres – Monaco 18.01.2013
Istres is currently in the first part of the table, on 8th position
with 28 points. They are not in best form in the last period and have no victory in the last three rounds. However, something else is important for my pick – they played efficient matches. The last three matches finished with Over 2.5 goals.
The team is almost complete with this match, with Nicolas De Preville and Florian Tardieu rated as doubtful.
Match: Istres – Monaco 20.00h
League: France 2
Our prediction: over 2 goals Odds: 1.65
Monaco is currently on the second position, leveled on points with the leader Nantes. The coach Claudio Ranieri has good and respectable squad and many believed the Principality team will be too superior in League Two. However, the reality is very different. That is why Ranieri is already under pressure. Monaco have only one victory in the last four matches and that is why I am expecting maximum from Monaco players. At this point I will mention that the last two away matches of Monaco were efficient.
Monaco have four injured players – Sebastian Ribas and Andreas Wolf are definitely sidelined, while Delvin Ndinga and Layvin Kurzawa are both rated as doubtful.
At the end I will mention that the last two mutual games ended with Over 3.5 goals. To be more exact, both matches finished with 5 goals and both games finished with the same results – 3:2 for Monaco. I think this match will finish with at least three goals.
