The teams of Caen and Monaco will meet in the 29th round of the French Ligue 1. Check out our soccer forecast.
The team of Caen has presented extremely strongly this season and we don`t think anyone would expect that in this period of the season they will be located on the 4th position in the standings with an equal number of points with the third Lyon. The backlog of the team from its upcoming opponent, who was the second, eight points so that Caen can even dream of and more front rank if it is successful on Friday night. However, the battle for the third place in the League is quite controversial, since the difference between the third and the ninth in the table is just four points. This means that Caen must be very strong by the end of the season, if it wants to fight for a place in European club tournaments in the next campaign.
In the last round, `red and blue` made a very important success as a guest of St Etienne, who is a direct competitor for the top positions. Caen outplayed them with 2:1 after goals by Andy Delors and Ronny Rodelin. At home, however, the team made four losses in the last six games, and in the past round in front of an audience of its own, the players of Patrice Garand beat Rennes with 1:0, but lost against Reims, so that their performance can be defined as tentative. If they want to win against Monaco, they need to show their best form since their opponent is among the strongest in the championship this season.
The guests are the second in the table, and there are no views to be displaced from this position, as the advance to the third Lyon`s eight points. To reach the leader PSG ought to question - Parisians have 23 points more. So, Monaco only has to maintain a good rhythm for the rest of the season without a problem and will qualify for the Champions League.
Monaco is in a series of five straight shutouts in the League. In the last round they finished with a draw of 0:0 away against Nantes, and its previous visit brought them a point against St Etienne after 1:1. In his the visit of Caen, it won with 3:0, and at the level of the Ligue 1 they have not had a loss in seven consecutive matches against this opponent.
In the last three matches, the hosts scored a total of five goals, and in the previous two encounters of Monaco as guest, there were two goals. Given the importance of the meeting for Caen, expect them to approach very disciplined against a more classy rival, which is a prerequisite for a healthy tactical deception. Therefore, we expect again some goals than these two teams in the battle for a place in the Champions League.
Our soccer prediction predicted by www.bestsportpredictions.com is under 2.5 goals.
