Monaco vs Caen
French League Cup – Coupe de la Ligue
Date: Tuesday 12th December 2017
Kick-off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).
Monaco have been handed a home tie over Caen and will easily start as the favourites to advance to the quarter finals. Monaco are back in form coming into this game with back to back wins in the league and apart from their loss to PSG they have a perfect record at home where they have scored 26 goals in 8 games.
Whilst Monaco will have one eye on finishing in a European position they will be taking the French League Cup seriously, and should put out a decent side as manager Louis Jardem hopes to win more silverware with his club.
Caen’s recent loss against Toulouse at the weekend means that the club have gone 3 weeks without a win and that defeat put them down into 9th place. While recent form has dipped the club have had a great start to the season, though a cup exit here could signal the beginnings of a downturn.
Monaco vs Caen: Head to Head
The teams last met here in October where Monaco were able to win 2-0. Caen have struggled at this ground and despite getting some draws they have not won here this century. The final score of 2-2 between the clubs has occurred 4 times from the last 10 meetings.
