Troyes had a great previous season, they managed to win a title in Ligue 2 and promotion into Ligue 1 but after 18 rounds they are only team in league without victory. They are at last position at the table with only seven points, and it will be very hard for them to avoid relegation in this campaign. They will now host Monaco in 19th round of French Ligue 1. Troyes played against Monaco about three years ago in 1/8 finals of the Cup and they achieved victory on the road 1:2. They are coming here after two draws against Bastia and Reims but it will be very hard now to stay undefeated here against strong Monaco. Troyes seems desperate, they have already 12 points less than first team above relegation zone, they were also eliminated from Cup in 1/16 finals by Lille on he road 2:1. Troyes conceded almost amazing 35 goals in 18 matches and scored only ten, and it seems that they simple can't compete with strongest teams in France. As for absent players, defenders Mahamadou N'Diaye, Mory Kone, Rincon, Guillaume Lacour and Johan Martial and midfielder Benjamin Nivet will stay out of action due to injuries.

Monaco meanwhile showed decent performances in this campaign in French Ligue 1 and currently are at 3rd position at the table with equal number of points as 2nd Angers. In previous 18 rounds they suffered only three defeats, against Bordeaux, Lorient and PSG while celebrated 8 times and got 7 draws. They are now coming to this match after convincing defeat against Bordeaux in 1/8 finals of the Cup on the road 3:0. Monaco ended previous campaign also at 3rd place and they were playing in Champions league qualifications but in final round were eliminated by Spanish Valencia. They were playing in Europa league but after six rounds have failed to reach knockout stage and now are fully focused on their domestic league. Monaco showed decent attacking skills and scored 25 goals but they must improve their defense since so far conceded 23 goals. They will for sure go for a victory here in order to retain their position and achieve their third consecutive victory in league. Forwards Adama Traore, Guido Marcelo Carrilo, defenders Fabio Coentrao, Almamy Toure and goalkeeper Daniel Subasic will miss this match due to injuries while appearance of midfielder Mario Pasalic is in doubt due to minor injury.

Troyes is in very bad shape, they still seeking for their first victory and it will be very hard against strong Monaco, they must show outstanding performances to achieve positive result and judging by their performances so far it seems almost impossible, while Monaco have failed to reach quarter finals of the Cup and Europa league knockout stage, they are fully focused on league, I expect that they will achieve another victory here.
