Ligue 1: Stats, facts, and team news ahead of matchday nine

October 4, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
Here's all you need to know heading into matchday nine of the 2019/2020 Ligue 1 season.

Ligue 1 is now in full swing, but will be interrupted yet again due to more international games after this round. Matchday eight brought plenty of interesting results though, as fans saw Dijon finally got off the mark, and Monaco seem to have turned a corner.

Here's all you need to know ahead of matchday nine.

Team news: Who's missing out on matchday nine?

Here are some of the players who could miss out for their respective sides:

  • PSG: Julian Draxler, Kylian Mbappé (both out injured); Edinson Cavani (doubtful)
  • Monaco: Willem Geubbels, Danijel Subasic, Henry Onyekuru, Stevan Jovetic (all injured); Pietro Pellegri (doubtful)

Stats and facts: What's at stake ahead of matchday nine?

  •  Monaco are undefeated in 27 of their last 28 matches against Montpellier in all competitions

Talking points ahead of matchday nine

Monaco finally have re-discovered their form? Or is this just a false dawn?

After a rough start, Les Rouges-et-Blancs have won their last two games, and now will take on Montpellier - a side they have historically fared well against. They've lost just one of their last 28 meetings versus their upcoming opponents, and although Montpellier rank higher than them in the table, this game will represent a great chance for Leonardo Jardim's side to pick up another three points before Ligue 1 is interrupted once again for another round of international fixtures.

For all intents and purposes, it seems like Monaco are back on track, but fans of the team probably aren't getting their hopes up just yet until the side can really start stringing positive results together and start making their way up the table towards the European football spots.
