Toulouse vs Monaco 25/02/18

25 February 2018

Saturday’s encounter between Toulouse and Monaco at the Stadium Municipal will bring a lot of tension, as the hosts are trying to avoid relegation at all costs, while the visitors are looking to extend the gap between them and the third-placed Marseille. Les Monegasques last away defeat dates back to November against Nantes. However, since then, Monaco have netted ten goals in four road matches, four of them in a stunning 4-0 victory over St. Etienne. Toulouse are playing an ‘unattractive’ football, as eight out of their last ten home games in Ligue 1 have ended with less than three goals. On the other hand, Leonardo Jardim’s team plays an attacking and aggressive style of football, something they have demonstrated by scoring eighteen goals in the previous six games in the French championship.

Andy Delort and the Brazilian forward, Somalia, are both sidelined due to injuries, but Mickael Debeve is hopeful Delort could be back to full fitness and help his teammates against a powerful opponent.

Adama Traore who suffered a groin injury during the first half of the season is expected to miss the remainder of the current campaign. The first-choice left-back, Jorge, and the club’s captain, Radamel Falcao, are both at risk of skipping the game, while it is still uncertain when Diego Benaglio will be ready to return full training.
