Winners: TOU vs. AMO

We stopped the bleeding last night, whether it’s temporary or not, when the Minnesota Lynx beat the Atlanta Dream. The Lynx led at halftime but trailed at the end of the third quarter. Needless to say, I was devastated. It took an epic collapse for the Dream to lose. They scored two points in the fourth quarter, both from the free throw line, and missed every field goal attempt. I’m not complaining. It would have been disastrous if the Lynx lost. Today, we’ll look to keep the momentum going.

It’s finally upon us. European soccer season is cranking up. Today’s first Ligue 1 matchup between Toulouse and AS Monaco should be fun. Monaco is coming off a season in which they gained a lot of praise, winning Ligue 1 over favorite Paris St. Germain and getting to the semi-finals of the EUFA Champions League. Over the last few months, their team has sold a few players but their most important players in their offense that lead to 107 league goals last season remain. Kylian Mbappe, the teenager who before Neymar just broke the transfer record would have broken the transfer record if sold, looks to improve on a season in which he scored 21 goals in all competitions last season.

The last five times these teams have played Monaco are 3-1-1, including going 1-1 against Toulouse last season. In those five games, Monaco have scored at least three goals in all their wins, and have scored in all five. So based on previous results, the math says Toulouse has an 80% chance of not winning. Monaco will know they have to win the majority of their games this season with PSG looking to regain the title.
