MON vs MET Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Monaco turn their attention to the French Cup as they look for their first win in five games in all competitions when they host Metz at Stade Louis II, in Monaco, on Tuesday night (IST).
It was nothing short of a magic trick when Monaco usurped the mighty, the rich and the powerful Paris Saint-Germain from the summit of French football in 2016-17 season. It was a season which didn’t act out of the usual script, certainly not according to the calligraphy of Qatar Sports Investments.
Leonardo Jardim was the manager. But he was blessed with a young and a hungry squad. His roster boasted the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Bernardo Silva and Fabinho. The backbone of the team, the thrust which propelled the team to the ultimate glory in that season.
We all know what happened to that core, most of them are gone, plying their trade with other teams and in other leagues. Monaco, meanwhile, were handsomely rewarded for their prized assets. But football doesn’t work like that. The sale has to be matched by the new recruitment, if not unique, then talented enough at least. But Joardim failed in that regard, or perhaps wasn’t supported.
Now the repercussion is in front of us. The club is entangled and trapped in a bog from where the sunshine looks a blessing, the relegation is a reality and the avoidance of it could be a luxury.
The current campaign is one of the worst seasons Monaco had endured in their recent history. At the moment, they are 2nd last in the Ligue 1 table, winning only three games, and three points adrift of safety.
It’s a gap which may be evaporated in a week, but for that Monaco has to win. But even the victory looks esoteric these days, even at Stade Louis II. Just look at the result of the last game, a 1-5 home loss against Strasbourg. Just not enough.
Now Thiery Henry has the chance to taste a win, as he prepares his side for a French Cup round of 32 matche against Ligue 2 side Mets.
Sometimes the difference between tiers could be an agent of ultimate deception. But in the case of Monaco, they sit just two places above Metz who are leading the Ligue 2 at the moment.
Metz are also on a very good run of their own, winning five times in the last six games. Can they shock the hosts? Yes they can.

MON vs MET Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Monaco brought Thiery Henry back as a boss to steady the club, but the results have been far less than convincing. Nothing is looking good for them at the moment as the sale of best players is now starting its toll on the club.But still, there is enough talent in the rank and the team has enough quality to save itself from relegation.
Also, this is a cup game against a team from the lower divisions. Henry can certainly use a win here to infuse confidence into his team.
A win for Monaco is our call.
