An intriguing contest awaits us on Thursday night when Rouen and Monaco meet in the round of 16 of the French Cup.

The hosts shone in the CFA last season to gain promotion with 69 points from 30 games, but things are not going so well in the National League. Maxime D'Ornano's side currently sit 7th in the table and have lost each of their last two league games. The Red Devils will ever take solace in the fact that they knocked out Ligue 1 side Toulouse in the last 32 of the French Cup to set up Thursday's game.

Monaco have been on the decline since last season. Adi Hütter's side finished the 2023-24 season outside the top five in Ligue 1 and are currently in fifth place. Les Monégasques claimed a comfortable 3-1 win over Rodez in the last 32, but that is their only victory in their last five outings.

Rouen vs Monaco Betting Tips: Both teams to score

FC Rouen will go into Thursday's game as the clear underdogs, but they should not be written off at the Stade Robert Diochon. The Red Devils scored averagely two goals per game in their last four home outings, and both teams scored in three of those fixtures.

Monaco's biggest weakness this season has been their defence. This is best explained by the fact that the visitors have conceded more goals than any other team in the top half of French Ligue 1 this season. Adi Hütter's side enter this game with a run of eight consecutive games without a clean sheet, and bets on "btts-yes" won in each of their last six games.
