08/02 Daily Predictions: Rouen vs Monaco

Betting Tips

Rouen has advanced to the Coupe de France round of 16, where they will play Monaco on Thursday at Stade Robert Diochon for the first time in this century. Les Monegasques defeated Rodez 3-1 in the round of 32, while the Normandy club pulled off a stunning shock by eliminating defending champion Toulouse 12-11 on penalties.

Rouen vs Monaco

The hosts performed admirably in the CFA the previous season, earning promotion with 69 points from 30 games, but the National League is having trouble right now. The team led by Maxime D’Ornano is currently seventh in the standings and has dropped its last two league games. The fact that the Red Devils eliminated Toulouse of Ligue 1 in the French Cup final 32 to advance to Thursday’s match will always be a source of comfort for them.

Since the previous season, Monaco has been losing ground. Currently in fifth place, Adi Hütter’s team concluded the 2023–24 Ligue 1 season outside of the top five. Les Monégasques claimed a comfortable 3-1 win over Rodez in the last 32, but that is their only victory in their last five outings.

However, Monaco should still win this within 90 minutes. They are 39 places ahead of Rouen in the French football pyramid and have lost just one of their last six matches.

They swept past second-tier Rodez in the last round, notching a 3-1 victory, highlighting the gulf in talent between their squad and any opponents in the divisions below.

Verdict

One of the strongest teams in Ligue 1, Monaco has a stellar road record that includes four wins and a five-game unbeaten run. Rouen, meanwhile, has lost two games in a row and has been in turmoil lately. Although FC Rouen is the obvious underdog going into the encounter on Thursday at Stade Robert Diochon, they shouldn’t be discounted. In their last four home games, the Red Devils have scored two goals per game on average, with three of those games seeing a goal from each team.

This season, Monaco’s defense has been their greatest vulnerability. The fact that the visitors have given up more goals than any other side in the top half of French Ligue 1 this season best explains this.

Bets on “BTTS-YES” has won each of their last six games, and Adi Hütter’s team comes into this match having lost eight straight games without recording a clean sheet.
