Monaco vs Rodez: Our top betting tips

Rodez come into this game highly unfancied against a clearly superior opposition and away from home. Are they about to get steamrollered or do they have a game plan to stop their Ligue 1 hosts? Find out with our Monaco vs Rodez match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Monaco to win it with ease

Sorry Rodez fans, it could be a long old evening for you on Saturday if this prediction comes in. Not only do we think Monaco win this match but we believe they'll batter their Ligue 2 visitors hence the -2 handicap. Monaco are a team sitting in the upper portion of the Ligue 1 table and boast the third most goals scored in the league. Rodez meanwhile are struggling near the foot of the second tier and don't exactly boast a potent frontline or a solid defence. We won't stop there though. Rodez have given us a reasonable yardstick for their ability to play against higher tier teams recently; Montpellier hit them for five in a recent friendly. Even with a few changes, Monaco should be winning this by at least three goals.

Goals galore

We'll be honest, we've already touched on the fact we think Monaco will stroll to a win in this game so odds of 1/1 (2.00) for over 3.5 goals in the total goals market made our eyes light up; that's seriously good value. Monaco have seen 12 goals – an average of 4.0 – across their last three games with two of those matches passing the 3.5 mark. Rodez meanwhile have seen one of their last three games pass that 3.5 mark with a total of nine goals seen. Consider they've conceded 78% of those goals and now face Monaco's attack and you can expect that 3.0 goal average to increase!

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Monaco odds: 2/13 (1.15) – 87%

Draw odds: 16/3 (6.33) – 16%

Rodez odds: 10/1 (11.00) – 9%

A look over the bookmakers odds will leave you in absolutely no doubt about who is the most fancied side to win this game. Monaco's odds of 2/13 (1.15) give very little hope to Rodez, who are priced as a 10/1 (11.00) shot to win this game in 90 minutes. The draw is available at odds of 16/3 (6.33). You can supercharge your odds in a few ways though; one of those ways is by backing Rodez to keep it level until the interval. A HT draw followed by a FT Monaco win is priced at 12/5 (3.40).

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Monaco vs Rodez

Monaco

On one hand, this is an easy game for Monaco. On the other, it's a no win situation. Ease through to the next round and it is what they should have done. Struggle – or worse go out – and it's a disaster. With that being said, we see Monaco taking a few risks with their lineup here and wouldn't be surprised to see the likes of Breel Embolo and Wissam Ben Yedder rested.

Predicted lineup – Nubel (GK), Disasi, Maripan, Vanderson, Henrique, Fofana, Camara, Jakobs, Sarr, Boadu, Martins

Rodez

The big question for Rodez here is how they approach the game. We know there is a big chance they lose but do they go with a strong XI to give a good account of themselves or do they play a weakened team knowing relegation from Ligue 2 is far from impossible. Picking up an injury to a key player in a game you're likely losing anyway could be seen as careless. Regardless, we see them doing the former.

Predicted lineup – Nzau (GK), Senaya, Yao, Abdallah, Chougrani, Mouyokolo, Rajot, Danger, Boissier, Depres, Corredor

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced one hour prior to kick off.

Player to watch

We could use this space to talk about Rodez's Bradlay Danger as a danger man. We won't, that would be a tragic pun and not actually a fair reflection on the key player. Instead we look at Myron Boadu. The Dutch forward has struggled a bit since joining Monaco but he'll likely be given a crack of the whip in this game and he is a highly capable player. His last start saw him grab a goal and he was a goal machine in the Eredivise before heading to France. We could see some of that prowess here.
