Ligue 1 matchday 1 forecast: Monaco head elsewhere?
For its start in Ligue 1, AS Monaco will not have an easy task. Traveling to La Meinau to challenge RC Strasbourg, the Monegasques are currently in the middle of a double confrontation against PSV Eindhoven, in the race for qualification for the Champions League. With the return match on Tuesday in the Netherlands, Philippe Clément’s players could well have their minds already turned towards this important meeting for the rest of the season. If the Monegasque physique seemed to be solid Tuesday during the first leg by finishing very strongly, nothing says that the organizations can chain a 2n/a top level game so early in the season. If the AS Monaco workforce is provided in attack with W.Ben Yedder, K.Roland, T.Minamino or S.Diop, the defense and the midfield still lack rotations. This augurs a difficult meeting for the players of the principality.
At the gates of Europe last season (6th place), Racing Club de Strasbourg hopes to do as well this season. With a slightly upset squad, the automatisms should not be lacking for this first official meeting of the season. Still under the orders of Julien Stephan, the Strasbourgeois will still be a hair scratch for all the big teams in the championship. Beaten only 3 times last season at La Meinau, the Alsatians are always pushed by a public hot as embers. Not hesitating to play forward, and to put his attackers in the best conditions as his Kevin Gameiro and Ludovic Ajorque, the danger can come from everywhere on the part of the Strasbourgeois.
Our Ligue 1 forecast is for a draw between the 2 teams (odds of 3.25). If Monaco’s squad is more impressive on paper, the fatigue after Tuesday’s match in the Champions League play-offs and the opposition proposed by RC Strasbourg should give us a very balanced meeting.

Prognosis Ligue 1 day 1: The Favre effect already present at the Aiglons?
OGC Nice was arguably the most active Ligue 1 club on the transfer market this summer. By bringing Lucien Favre back in place of Christophe Galtier, who left for PSG, the people of Nice are showing great ambitions for the 2022-2023 season. Marcin Bulka, Alexis Beka Beka, Aaron Ramsey and Mattia Viti have arrived on the Côte d’Azur, awaiting the upcoming signing of Kasper Schmeichel. What hope to do better than a 5th place acquired last season, because the GYM also kept its assets like A.Delort, K.Thuram, A.Gouiri or the experienced Brazilian Dante. It remains to start the season well with the promoted Toulousain.
Because it is in the pink city that the people of Nice move. French Ligue 2 champion last May, Toulouse FC only stayed two seasons in the antechamber of Ligue 1. With Philippe Montanier still at the helm of the team, Téfécé does not intend to make the lift. For this, the coach and the staff have decided to bet on the stability of the workforce. Few departures (Mamady Alex Bangré and Sam Sanna) and a few arrivals from Northern Europe (Oliver Zandén from Elfsborg, Thijs Dallinga from Excelsior, Christian Haug from Valerenga and Zakaria Aboukhlal from AZ Alkmaar). Will this be enough to keep a place in the elite? Answer next June!
For this meeting between an ambitious team, OGC Nice, and Toulouse FC, which will aim for nothing other than maintenance, our Ligue 1 forecast is heading towards a victory for the Aiglons (odds of 2.46).
