The MON vs STE match preview –
In the French Ligue 1, AS Monaco will be given another chance to salvage their season as they travel to St. Etienne on Friday.
The former champions are going through a nightmarish season this time out. They haven’t won a single game in the last six and getting outplayed in almost every single game, AS Monaco look a shadow of their former self right now. Coach Leonardo Jardim had the excuse of injuries initially, but now with a fully-fit squad, he needs to do something as soon as possible. It is quite possible if the string of winless games carries on, AS Monaco will be seeing a managerial change within the next few months.
On the other hand, St. Etienne have had a regular start to the season. Nothing has changed much for the team, and this can be a positive the management can take. They have a vibrant forward lineup who can score goals, and if they address the issues regarding their defence, St. Etienne will become one of the forces to be reckoned with in the French Ligue 1.

- Youri Tielemans

Gambling India Info Match Prediction AS Monaco vs St. Etienne –
St. Etienne will be winning this game, as AS Monaco is going through a torrid time.
Saint Etienne – Former Newcastle United and Arsenal right-back Mathieu Debuchy is a big doubt for the home team in this match, while there is no other major worry in this department for Jean-Louis Gasset.
AS Monaco – For the visiting team, the injuries and the sale of their superstars are beginning to take a toll on the performance in the ground. The 2016-17 champions have been poor in the first six games, and have just 1 win to show in the first six matches. However, the team is still full of talent and at full strength should win games like these. But, for this particular match, Danijel Subasic, Rony Lopes, Willem Geubbels, Stevan Jovetic, and Ronael Pierre-Gabriel are all expected to miss. While Manager Leonardo Jardim has threatened to drop Youri Tielemans, Jemerson and Pietro Pellegri from the squad after the recent poor form.
