Here we have two strong teams of the French Ligue 1. This season, Monaco is at #2 so far with 19 points, following only Paris Saint-Germain (25 points so far). Caen is #8, but nevertheless, this here is a team we can easily compare with a #2 Monaco. So, the question is, which team manages to pull off a victory in a game that is going to be decidedly hard to fight? We’ll soon find out. The result will have a significant effect on the overall points and thus the standings in Ligue 1. So far in, every match between the top 10 Ligue 1 2017-18 teams is crucial and going to be very interesting.
AS Monaco might be ranking high up, but the team hasn’t been too good to deserve the spot without any problems. Their record so far is 0-1-2. They’ve lost both their games at home. However, goals matter a lot and these plenties of goal scores mean a team can win any game.
If we take the UEFA Champions League into account, the overall performance has been worse. Monaco is plagued with draws and losses even after good attempts at scoring.
They will be banking on their core players to turn the goals into a win in their game against SM Caen.
SM Caen is 4 points behind AS Monaco. Their performance has regularly been a winning one in the past few games. Including the UEFA Champions League, the team has had a good stretch of winning games.
They have not scored more than two goals, however, in a very long time now. This might prove to be fatal. If they don’t defend well, their goals might not mean much after all.
