Prediction and betting tips

Crvena Zvezda have won eight of the last 12 matches, but they have not met strong rivals in their national league. Monaco have started the 2022-23 Ligue 1 badly. Also, they failed the last round of the 2022-23 Champions League qualification. Their performance at the start of the season looks disappointing, but Philippe Clement’s boys have met much stronger rivals than Crvena Zvezda. Besides, Monaco have a streak of four guest matches without losses in regular time.

I believe that Monaco will beat Crvena Zvezda in the first round. Also, both teams may score in this match too. This outcome has played out in the last five matches with Crvena Zvezda participating and in 10 of the last 11 matches with Monaco’s participation.

Betting prediction: Monaco to win
Odds: 2.10 (+110 American; 11/10 Fractional)

Betting prediction: Both teams to score
Odds: 1.60 (-167 American; 3/5 Fractional)
