Troyes vs Monaco preview, betting tips and prediction
May 17, 2018
The Champions League race has gone down to the wire in Ligue 1 and AS Monaco have not yet secured their passage to the group stage. However, a point away to Troyes will send the principality side into Europe’s top competition proper for a third successive year.
Following the success of their title-winning campaign of 2017, this season has been a major disappointment for Monaco. They followed up a run to the Champions League semi-finals by finishing bottom of their group, the culmination of an exodus of their best players. The pick of the players who didn’t leave (Fabinho, Thomas Lemar) didn’t reach the same heights.
Monaco should be able to do enough to beat Troyes but the struggling home side will be motivated by the fact that they can still potentially reach the relegation/promotion play-off.
