Should be a close match but you will pull it out
Huge game mate, really hope you can win this and move on through to the final!
Not having Pavón available may see you suffer somewhat, but I believe you have enough firepower to overcome Monaco!

AS Monaco Reach Coupe De La Ligue Final
A goal from Joao Moutinho saw AS Monaco advance to the Coupe de la Ligue final
AS Monaco 2 - 1 Toulouse

Coming away with a hard fought victory, AS Monaco defeated Toulouse to book their spot in the Coupe de la Ligue final, seeing Toulouse lose at the semi-final stage of the competition for the second year in a row.

Toulouse got off to a great start after William Matheus made an incredible run down the left side, putting a cross which Wissam Ben Yedder headed home to opened the scoring in the 11th minute. Corentin Jean levelled the score for AS Monaco ten minutes later, striking the ball from the outside of the box with an incredible strike.

After equalising, AS Monaco took control of the game and managed to earn a one goal advantage just before the half time break when they strung together a number of passes to leave Joao Moutinho one on one with Predrag Rajkovic stroking the ball into the back of the net.

Coming out from the break, Toulouse took control of the game but struggled to get a shot on target despite numerous chances. Just before the final whistle, Toulouse midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko received a yellow card after a poor challenge as tension grew seeing a number of players become involved in the situation.

In the other semi-final, LOSC Lille came away with a 1-0 victory over Ligue 2 side AS Nancy Lorraine to see them book their place in the Coupe de la Ligue final against AS Monaco which is set to be played at Stade de France on the 31st of March.
Almost. Good job mate.
Unlucky to lose mate, but hopefully it means you can concentrate on the Champions League and now the Ligue 1 title!
Tough luck, at least you can focus on bigger competitions now!
Unlucky mate. You've bigger fish to fry though ;)
Damn man another trophy would have been nice
A tough result to take, but you will come back stronger than ever next time!

Starting the month out with a 1-1 draw against Stade Rennais, Toulouse would next go on to demolish SO Chatellerault by six goals in the French Cup with former captain Abel Aguilar completing a hat-trick on his birthday.

Toulouse then managed two straight victories over Paris-Saint Germain, coming away with a 2-0 victory in their Coupe de la Ligue Quarter Final followed by a 1-0 win in their French Cup 10th Round match.

A brace from Wissam Ben Yedder would see Toulouse come away with a 2-0 victory over FC Metz before losing 2-1 to AS Monaco in the Coupe de la Ligue Semi Final. Toulouse then defeated last placed Angers SCO comfortably before losing to Olympique Lyonnais 2-1 to finish the month.

Proving to be one of the most consistent players for Toulouse during his time at the club. Oscar Trejo has continued to maintain his high standards and in doing so has been awarded the Player Of The Month for January.

Oscar Trejo has played 152 games for Toulouse and is considered the main playmaker for Toulouse. Trejo has formed a terrific combination with Cristian Pavon with Toulouse considered much more dangerous when both players are on the field together.

Paris Saint-Germain hold a slight lead over Toulouse as the sides head into February while Olympique Lyonnais trail slightly behind the leading sides with AS Monaco completing the top four. A large number of teams sit behind the top four, should any of these sides hit a good run of form they would find themselves a strong chance of earning a place in the European places.

Incredibly, Angers SCO are still yet to win a game this season and are currently fourteen points away from escaping the relegation zone. US Orleans find themselves in just as much trouble with both sides requiring a dramatic change in form to avoid relegation to Ligue 2 at the end of the season.

Toulouse will face Ajax in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 with the first leg to be played at Amsterdam ArenA

After defeating SO Chatellerault and Paris Saint-Germain, Toulouse are now set to face Stade Malherbe Caen in their French Cup 11th Round fixture which is set to be played at Stadium Municipal.

AS Monaco have eliminated Toulouse from the Coupe de la Ligue after coming away with a 2-1 victory in their semi-final.


Injury Report

M’Baye Niang

Suffering an injury during training and damaging his heel, M’Baye Niang missed the final two fixtures in December. Despite this, he is only a slight chance of missing the Ligue 1 fixture against Paris Saint-Germain at the start of the month.

Cristian Pavon

Cristian Pavon missed a majority of December, suffering an ankle injury during the French Cup 10th Round victory against Paris Saint-Germain. He is in doubt for the first fixture of January against Paris Saint-Germain, although he is expected to be available for the French Cup 11th Round fixture against Stade Malherbe Caen.

A reasonably short month faces Toulouse in February, facing Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 to start the month in a top of the table clash before taking on Stade Malherbe Caen in the 11th Round of the French Cup.

Next up, Toulouse face rivals Girondins de Bordeaux before travelling to take on Ajax when the first leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 commences. To finish the month, Toulouse face fourth placed AS Monaco at Stadium Municipal before playing their final match against FC Nantes.
A good month mate, a shame about the defeat to Monaco but everything else is going strong! Keep it up :D
Wow, just starting following your story and it's really impressive. Hopefully you'll wil be able to pull away from PSG the coming month, big first game coming up now!
Liking it so far. Would be nice to see a team knock PSG off their perch. A titles all well and good but stopping the domination would be a great feat. Starting your own domination, even better.
That's a tough draw against Ajax in Europe, but good to see you sneaking up on PSG in the league more and more :)
