FRANCE:
Ligue 1

Match
start: 20:45 (GMT+2)

According
to the results of two last rounds of the new Ligue 1 championship the
total number of leaders has shortened up to 5 teams. These are PSG,
Monaco, Marseille, Olympique Lyonnais and Saint-Étienne.

You
should agree that after such tremendous loses that the Monegasques
have experienced during this summer shoulder period it is hard to
imagine the team of Leonardo Jardim in the group of leaders after
even two rounds. But, nevertheless, after the home victory over
Toulouse (3:2) had come smashing away match winning over Dijon (1:4).

Current
squad of Monaco

For
the last two and a half months of the transfer window the Monegasques
had lost more than 10 football players and four of them – Benjamin
Mendy, Tiemoué Bakayoko, Bernardo Silva and Nabil Dirar were
irreplaceable players of the starting lineup. The squad of the
champion for the last away match against Dijon was (4-4-2):

Subašić
– Sidibé, Glik, Jemerson, Jorge – Lopes, Moutinho, Fabinho, Lem
– Diakhaby, Falcao.

Further
possible loses

As
we see, the lineup of the red and whites has now left winger from the
Brazilian Flamengo Jorge, winger Marcos Lopes and forward from
Rennais Adam Diakhaby. And the new playmaker of the team is Toma Lem.


But
now PSG, having in its lineup three holding midfielders of the top
level – Thiago Motta, Blaise Matuidi and Marco Verratti and is going
to have even Fabinho. According to preliminary data, the sum of
Fabinho’ s transfer will be approximately € 60 million.

Match
prediction

We
doubt that now the head coach of Monaco Leonardo Jardim knows who
will play instead of the holding midfielder Fabinho.

But
still the Brazilian is in the squad of the Monegasques and the
champion is waiting for the third victory in a row. This time –away
match against Metz. Alas! The time when this club could win the title
and was playing in the Champions League had gone. When the new season
began, the reds had lost two matches in a row to Guingamp and
Bordeaux with the total score 1:5 and now are in the relegation zone
for good.

Metz
– 10.00, draw – 4.35, Monaco –1.35;
