Since the start of the season most observers have been of the opinion that it is only a matter of time until Monaco emerge from their slump, and that they can't really be serious candidates for relegation. As each week passes by with yet another poor result though, that prospect begins to look more and more real. Next up for Thierry Henry's beleaguered troops is this trip to the Stade Michel d'Ornano to take on fourth bottom Caen.

Monaco did the double over Caen last season, winning this game 2-1 and coming out on top 2-0 at home.

One thing that is probably going to need to happen if Monaco are to extricate themselves from this mess is that their list of injuries is going to need to clear up. There doesn't seem to be too much prospect of that just yet though, with Rony Lopes, Almamy Touré, Pietro Pellegri, Julien Serrano, Kevin N'Doram, Djibril Sidibe, Danijel Subasic, Stevan Jovetic, Adama Traoré and Jean Eudes Aholou all crammed into what must be an overflowing treatment room. Andrea Raggi is also out suspended.

Caen mist do without Adama Mbengue, Enzo Crivelli and Frederic Guilbert who have all earned a suspension in recent weeks, in addition to the injured Romain Genevois.

Caen have lost just once at home in Ligue 1 this season, drawing four of their six games to date. Monaco have lost four of their past five on the road.

Its tough to tip either of these to win a game at present. Caen aren't easily overcome at home though and that injury list of Monaco's still looks crippling. We will take a narrow home win in this one.

Prediction: Caen 1 - 0 Monaco
