Ligue 1 action on Wednesday as Monaco and ASSE meet at the Stade Louis II – 7:00pm GMT.

ASSE to face fourteenth Monaco on Wednesday at the Stade Louis II, with Claude Puel’s team currently occupying nineteenth place in the League.

It’s five points so far for AS Mónaco this season, going into this meeting

Monaco’s recent run of poor form will be worrying for manager Niko Kovac, with a 2-2 draw to Nice in their last fixture, which followed a defeat to Olympique de Marseille. The Monégasques will be fired up for this next match, but mustn’t throw caution to the wind.

Niko Kovac knows that a run of three losses in five matches for his Monaco side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. With five points, they currently sit fourteenth in the League having won one game, drawn two meetings, and lost three matches.

When Monaco host ASSE, they will do so on the back of one draws on their own ground.

AS Mónaco will see 8 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Monaco are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Niko Kovac is concerned that Wednesday’s fixture could see him without one of his key players.

Nervous Saint-Étienne take relegation battle to the Stade Louis II to face AS Mónaco

A loss to Bordeaux home, and then Montpellier at away is not good enough to retain a credible run of form in the Ligue 1. ASSE will see this as an opportunity to get their season back on track.

Some statistics are more relevant than others they say, and three losses for ASSE seems very relevant, which puts them perilously in danger of finishing the season in the relegation zone. With nineteenth, they currently sit three points in the League drawn three games and lost three fixtures.

ASSE will travel to Monaco with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one darts.

A win in this fixture, would take Saint-Étienne’s points from 3 to 6, so far this season.

It is likely that three key players will miss Wednesday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Claude Puel and his ASSE team.
