Caen found themselves in the Ligue 1 relegation battle last month, but four points from two games have seen them climb towards the top half of the table. Caen bounced back from consecutive defeats to Bordeaux and Lorient to draw with Metz and earn a 2-1 victory away to Nantes. While their away form has been respectable, Caen's poor home form this season has seen them take just 18 points from a possible 45. In total, they have suffered seven defeats from 15 in front of their own fans. However, they have fared better away from their own ground thanks to a return of 20 points from 16 matches. Monaco have seen their Ligue 1 title bid come off the rails in recent weeks thanks to two consecutive draws. Last season's runners-up head to Caen in fourth place in the table, seven points adrift of leaders PSG. Monaco have struggled in the final third this season, scoring just 36 times in their 31 matches so far. Their top scorer is Dimitar Berbatov, who has found the net on six occasions. However, they currently boast the best defence in the French top flight, conceding 22 times and keeping 16 clean sheets.My pick is home win.
