Prediction and betting tips
Monaco started the 2022-23 season terribly. They had a streak of five matches without victories, but now they are returning to good conditions. Monaco have won five of the last six official matches and were unlucky to lose the match against Ferencvaros in Round 2. Monaco played much better in that fixture, but did not score a goal. Also, Wissam Ben Yedder played perfectly in the last match against Nantes and finished it with three goals. I believe that he will score in the next match too.
Trabzonspor failed their match against Fenercvaros by losing it, playing most of the time 11 vs 10. However, they showed an amazing attack in the last game against Crvena Zvezda. They are unlikely to win over Monaco, but will be able to score a goal in Round 3.
Betting prediction: Wissam Ben Yedder to score
Odds: 2.10 (+110 American; 11/10)
Betting prediction: BTTS & Monaco to win
Odds: 3.10 (+210 American; 21/10)
