MONACO VS ST ETIENNE (Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips) / 05.05.2019

A winless run of five Ligue 1 (L1) games (D3, L2) will have Monaco looking over their shoulder as they start to drift towards the drop zone after only recently getting out. However, the hosts have notably lost just one of their last six top-flight home games (W3, D2, L1), although worryingly they failed to find the net in their last two.
In fact, hitting the net has been a regular problem for Monaco, with ‘Les Monégasques’ scoring an average of just 0.88 goals per L1 fixture at the Stade Louis II this term. Yet with nearly half (46.67%) of their home league goals being scored in the first 30 minutes, boss Leonardo Jardim will be looking for a quick and confident start to ease nerves.
Opponents St Étienne know all about quick starts – nearly half (47.62%) of their L1 away goals have also been scored in the first 30 minutes. That goes some way to explain how they have been trailing at half-time in just three of their 17 top-flight away fixtures this term (HT: W5, D9, L3).
Chasing a Champions League spot, the fourth-placed visitors have been impressive on the road this season, and are currently enjoying a three-game unbeaten away streak (W2, D1), scoring two or more goals in each of those matches.
Players to watchFalcao’s (MON) last six L1 goals were scored after half-time. Meanwhile five of Rémy Cabella’s seven league goals this season were St Étienne’s first of the game.
Stat attack: Monaco are winless in the nine L1 home games that they conceded the opener (D2, L7).
St Étienne are unbeaten in nine of the ten L1 away games where they netted the first match goal (W5, D4, L1).
Both teams have scored in just one of the last five H2Hs.
