Leagues Tipped:

HEADING back to France tonight and there are three teams I fancy to get on the scoresheet as Monaco travel to Lille, Troyes are away at Sochaux  and Valenciennes host Orleans.

Team to score and time of first team goal are markets I'm a big fan of and with great success over the last few weeks on those markets the three games identified look strong.

Lille vs Monaco (7.45pm)

Another of those matches where an unfancied away side is more than capable of getting on the scoresheet. And, as has often been the case recently, bookies look like they are pricing matches up purely on league position.

Lilli sit second in Ligue 1 and are having a fantastic season so when you see they are home to fourth-bottom Monaco (30 points between this sides) few will give the visitors much of a chance but I wouldn't write them off.

It's been a disastrous season for Monaco but since Thierry Henry left things have improved significantly – they are unbeaten in 6 (3 wins, 3 draws) and scored 2 or more in 4 of those 6 games.

They love playing Lille and are unbeaten in their last 11 meetings (6 wins, 5 draws) and at Lille have scored  in 15 of their last 17 visits.

Lille are strong defensively and that's probably the main reason they are sitting second but given Monaco's form and need for points they can grab a goal here.

Sochaux vs Troyes (7pm)

The visitors are in great shape with a hat-trick of wins bringing them right back into contention for the play-offs. And with just one defeat in 9 they will fancy their chances here against a Sochaux side who have only one of their last 10 matches.

On the road Troyes have scored in 12 of their last 14 matches and with them having scored 2 goals in each of their last 3 trips here, taking them to get another goal tonight.

Valenciennes vs Orleans (7pm)

The hosts are flying at the moment with 4 wins from their last 5 and produced probably the best result of the season last week as they destroyed high-flying Brest 5-2 away from home.

They've scored 13 goals in their last 4 games and welcome an Orleans side who are also in fine form and with an outside chance of still making the play-offs – should be a cracking game.

    Agree on Monaco, goaltime is great value. It is now a very attack minded outfit with the likes of Fabregas and Adrien Silva occupying the midfield positions, both excellent playmakers and the exciting Martins and Lopes on the flanks. they also recruited well during the January window, best bit of business they did though was bringing Jardim back to the club, never should have let go of him in 1st place. GL!
