Ligue 1: More Monaco Mayhem in Week 28

Ligue 1: More Monaco Mayhem in Week 28

It’s a 19/2 treble for Dermot this week 

The biggest Ligue 1 game of the week takes place Friday evening when fourth placed Lille host a resurgent Marseille. Champions elect PSG face a relatively straightforward task against Clermont on Saturday. The way the fixtures have lined up there is a good chance of seeing a distinct bottom 4 by the end of game week 28.

Montpellier Vs Lorient Prediction

Sun Apr 7th 14:00

Michel Der Zakarian’s side’s quality doesn’t reflect their Ligue 1 league position. According to understat.com La Pallaide should be 8pts better off according to their xG table. Lorient on the other hand have conceded exactly 2 goals per game on the road. With the attacking talents of Savanier, Akor, Nordin and Tamari to contend with, I’m not sure Les Merlus can keep a clean or outscore the home side.

Montpellier to win @ 8/5

Toulouse Vs Strasbourg Prediction

Sun Apr 7th 14:00

Les Violets have won 4 of the last 6 in Ligue 1 and were very unlucky in the 2 losses in that run. Thijs Dallinga is in great form as the big Dutchman has scored 6 in the last 10. Strasbourg to their credit have won the last 2 games as Patrick Vieira’s young summer signings finally settle in. I like Dallinga’s match-up against Lucas Perrin. The Frenchman is a solid center-back but not the most physical. With Zakaria Aboukhlal also back from injury, there should be plenty of chances for the striker to continue his form.

Thijs Dallinga to score anytime @ 7/4

Monaco Vs Rennes Prediction

Sun Apr 7th 16:05

Monaco continued their gung-ho style last week with a 5-2 win at Metz in Ligue 1 . Les Monégasques were 3-0 up after 10 minutes as Adi Hutter has resorted to an ‘attack is the best form of defence’ mentality lately. Monaco’s home form isn’t awe inspiring but Rennes away form is poor too. An away loss to lowly Strasbourg just emphasises the issues with travelling Julien Stéphan’s side have had for the past 4 seasons.

Monaco to win @ 5/6
