When Trabzonspor hosts Monaco on Thursday, the fourth meeting for each team in the 2022–23 Europa League group stage, they will be attempting to extend their unbeaten streak at Medical Park Stadyumu to seven straight games across all competitions.
Les Monegasques defeated the reigning Turkish champions 3-1 last week in the Principality, moving three points ahead of them for second place in Group H as a result of an early red card.

Trabzonspor vs Monaco Tips and Prediction
The foot was on the other foot for the Turks last week as they benefited from a man advantage against Red Star Belgrade on matchday two of their Europa League campaign.
Trabzonspor lost their second away game of the competition at Stade Louis II due to a pointless challenge made by Monaco in the 11th minute.
They have given up six goals in two away games during the group stage, but they have looked much more contained at home, posting five clean sheets in their past seven games in all competitions, including Monday’s draw domestically against Kasimpasa.
This team hasn’t won back-to-back home victories in European competition since November 2014 if they win on matchday four.
Trabzonspor had just one win, one draw, and one loss in three home games against French opponents in their whole European history, most recently drawing Lille 1-1 in the 2011–12 Champions League.
Domestically, Abdullah Avci’s club has already lost two of its nine games this season—one fewer than they did in the 2021–22 season when they won the title.
Their most recent two wins at home have come despite giving up the first goal. They defeated Kayserispor at the beginning of October and overcame a deficit to defeat Gaziantep last month. This Monaco team has won four straight games in all competitions since suffering a setback against Ferencvaros on matchday two of the Europa League.
In their last four away games in all competitions, Philippe Clement’s team hasn’t given up a goal. However, at home, where they’ve won both of their games this month , they’ve been incredibly potent.
They scored one goal or fewer in three of their five games last month, indicating that their quality in the attacking third was occasionally nonexistent, but they have improved offensively since losing to the Hungarians in the Europa League, scoring 12 goals in their previous four games.
This club has struggled to compete in Turkey, winning just one of five games against Super Lig opponents, with their lone away victory coming against Galatasaray in the 1993–94 Champions League group stage .
Les Monegasques defeated Red Star Belgrade in their opening Group H match, and if they prevail on Thursday, it would be the first time since February 2015 that they have won two straight away games in significant European competitions.
Monaco has struggled to consistently win on the road in Europe, but so far in 2022–23 they have been dominating in Ligue 1 away from home, winning four of their opening five games as guests, their best start on the road since the 1991–92 season.
Monaco has displayed outstanding poise and defensive focus while playing away from home, therefore we don’t expect them to frequently be put under pressure when playing a team that frequently routes its attacks through Maxi Gomez.
Trabzonspor has failed to score in three of their previous five home games, and they may find it difficult to overcome Les Monegasques’ potent offense, who haven’t been shut out on the road since losing 1-0 to Strasbourg in March of last year.
