Tournament: The Coupe de France. 1/16 final.
In frames of the Coupe de France 1/16 final will be held the match between Monaco that is experiencing serious problems in Ligue 1 and Metz which takes the first place in Ligue 2.
If to judge by potential, Monegasques could have fought for the place in the Champions League but instead of this, their game leaves terrible impression and the last but one place in the table seems to be a real sensation but it is quite rightly.
In the last matches Monaco was a little bit stronger, but nothing has changed: they have made fewer mistakes but the team was not able to get rid of them. The attack is poor.
The Red and Whites have won only two games out of 4 last matches and tied two matches. Both wins were gained in frames of Cup tournament: in frames of the Coupe de la Ligue they won over Rennais (1:1) and in frames of the Coupe de France they won over Canet-en-Roussillon from the Division 5 (1:0).
As to Metz this team has broken down its 9 match series without defeats: 8 wins have been gained and one game ended in draw.
And in the last round of Ligue 2 Clermont has managed to break the win streak of the Maroons, having won away match. But, bearing in mind the current situation of the Monegasques, Metz will be able to fight.
Monaco in this season is winning more or less regularly in French Cup tournaments and that is why Monegasques have all chances to move further but it seems that as other previous several matches of the team of Thierry Henry this will ‘total under”.
