Monaco – Sedan 30.11.2012
Monaco’s last home win over Auxerre (2-0) was their actual only win at Stade Louis II in their last 5 home matches. If they are willing to win Ligue 2 this seasson and even be promoted to France’s elite group, they need to start winning home matches. Claudio Ranieri’s side manage to connect two wins and come after difficult game at Clermont which they won (0-1) thanks to their star attacker Ibrahima Toure.
Their winning form must be continued tonight since their 23.5 milion euro signings didn’t yet show their best game. Defender Eric Marester is unsure about his start and attacker Sebastian Ribas is still out with his long term injuries.
Match: Monaco – Sedan 18.45h
League: France 2
Our prediction: Home Win Odds: 1.55
Last placed Sedan who have only 1 win away from home this seasson is expected to struggle again. Their last 1-2 loss to 12th placed Le Havre doesn’t put any good moment for headed down players who have to play now the best Ligue 2 side. Even though they managed to pass Dijon in Coupe de France week before, after extra time, their form in last 5 matches is 1win, 1draw and 3 losses. Their boss Laurent Guyot will be without service of 3 middfielders.
Motivation of home team should be clear with Nantes expected to win against Niort also at their ground, every point will be decisive at the end of the seasson. Since 1999, Sedan won only 1 time away from home against Monaco, there was 4 draws and 7 wins for Monaco in 15 matches played.
