Monaco vs Stoke betting tips and predictions ahead of this friendly, kicking off at 3:30pm on Saturday, 15th July 2017. Read on for our betting tips and advice on this clash.
Can French champions Monaco continue their preseason campaign with a win over Premier League side Stoke? After a busy summer for the principality team, which has included multiple exits, will Stoke claim a win as they look to warm up for the new season?
Many expected half the Monaco squad to have been sold off by now, while there are plenty of reports linking their stars with moves elsewhere. The Premier League sides have been quick of more for a couple of names from the French champions, while there are a couple more who could be lining up against the likes of Stoke next term.
Despite losing a few key names, Monaco should still have far too much for Stoke here. The Premier League side struggled past Neuchâtel Xamax in their first preseason friendly, before they drew 2-2 with Young Boys. That doesn’t inspire confidence in them to see off the Champions League semi-finalists. We’re backing a victory for the French side in this friendly clash, as a new look Monaco start to gel. We’re backing a win for the favourites at 4/6 with Bet365 in our first Monaco vs Stoke betting tip.
The French side should have too much class from the start here, especially given how slowly Stoke started against Xamax. They were frustrated until the 87th minute in that clash, and we can see Monaco getting in front early here. We’re going with Monaco to be leading at the end of each half in our second Monaco vs Stoke prediction. That’s our second betting tip here, which seems very well priced at 13/8 with bet365.
Stoke almost have a new signing in goal, with Jack Butland ready for the new season. Meanwhile, Monaco will likely feature a new look team given their incomings and outgoings this summer.
