Stade Louis II will host Saturday’s 35th round Ligue 1 confrontation between Monaco and Amiens. The interesting fixture is scheduled to start at 7:00 pm GMT.
The home side are looking distraught at the moment as they come into this game following a 3-1 hammering blow at the hands of Guingamp in their last weekend’s away fixture. The Saturday’s loss was back to back defeats for the defending Ligue 1 champions as they suffered a hammering 7-1 blow at the hands of league leaders two weeks ago. Following the dismal league form, the hosts look a bit shaken at the moment ahead of the weekend’s clash.
Leonardo Jardim’s men are sitting at 2nd position in the league table managing 70 points from 334league games. The Monegasques have registered 21 wins and 6 defeats in the league campaign so far, and are leading third-placed Lyon by just a single point. The uncanny run means the defending champions remained out of the contention for league table for the most part of the league season. However, Monaco will be looking to snatch all three points from the weekend’s game in order to strengthen their season standings.
On the other hand, Amiens are in a decent league form with 3 wins from last 5 league fixtures. Meanwhile, the visitors have tasted defeat in a single occasion in the last 5 outings. Amiens had a comfortable home outing in their last week’s league fixture after managing 3-1 thumping win over Strasbourg. Following the latest win, the visitors will look confident ahead of the Saturday’s away fixture.
Christophe Pelissier’s men are currently placed at 13th position in the league table with 40 points from 34 league matches. Meanwhile, Amiens have registered 11 wins and 16 defeats in the campaign so far. With the league coming to the end, Amiens will be eyeing a strong finish to the league with most points from remaining fixtures.
The home side have a daunting list of absentees ahead of the weekend’s home clash. Star-striker Radamel Falcao remains doubtful for the game following a thigh injury.
Meanwhile, attacking duo of Stevan Jovetic (calf injury) and Pietro Pellegri (hernia) will miss Saturday’s encounter.
Similarly, midfielder Adama Traore is still out of the team following the long-sustained hamstring injury.
Furthermore, defender Djibril Sidibe (meniscus injury), striker Keita Balde (thigh injury) and goalkeeper Danijel Subasic (thigh injury) are other absentees for the home side.
Besides, Brazilian defender Jemerson is sidelined for the game following a suspension.
The away side have two injury concerns at the moment. Midfielder Mathieu Bodmer remains doubtful for the away clash following a calf injury.
In addition, striker Serge Gakpe suffered a late blow which keeps him out of the action for some period of time.
