Our football match prediction:
Monaco came from behind to beat Toulouse on the opening day of the season. Les Rouges et Blancs showed character in the 3-2 win over les Pitchouns and it has to be noted that Colombian attacker Radamel Falcao opened his goal-scoring account at the weekend. Fellow striker Kylian Mbappe played below expectations in the triumph over Toulouse, but, no doubt, the French rising star is going to keep his place in the starting line-up. Arsenal target Thomas Lemar impressed in the opening match of the season and he will be yet another man to watch in the away team in Sunday’s football game against Dijon. Olivier Dall’Oglio’s men, on the other hand, did not deserve to suffer such a heavy loss (3-0) to Marseille in their opener and that is the main reason why we predict the hosts will pick up one point from the Monaco game.
