Monaco take on the visitors St Etienne at “Stade Louis II” in the postponed match of the gameweek 31 of the French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Wednesday, May 17th.
Despite the fact that Monaco failed to promote to the UEFA Champions League final, they won’t give it up in the Ligue 1. Last matchday Leonardo Jardim’s side thrashed Lille with 4:0 scoreline and after 36 rounds it is leading in the Ligue 1 with 89 points gained and 102-29 goal difference. Monaco need to pick up only one point in two gameweeks left to take the Ligue 1 champion’s title. Taking into consideration Monaco’s performance at their home field: the team recorded 16 victories, one draw and single defeat, 61 goals for and 13 goals against in 18 home encounters, “Les Monegasques” must get the title in the upcoming Wednesday clash.

Last Sunday St Etienne were destroyed by Paris SG with 0:5 scoreline in front of their supporters. Generally speaking, this season is practically over for the “Les Verts” as they occupy the eighth place in the standings with 50 points earned and are likely to finish the season at the seventh-ninth positions of the Ligue 1 table. On the road St Etienne picked up 20 points with 16 goals for and 19 goals against in 17 encounters.
Monaco have not been defeated by St Etienne for five matches in a row already resulting in four draws with the same 1:1 scoreline and one 1:0 victory in favour of “Les Monegasques”. The Wednesday fight will definitely become the “champion” game for the hosts and I don’t believe they will try to thrash the visiting side in it.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.5 scored goals.
