Radamel Falcao could feature for the first time in three Ligue 1 Conforama matches with the AS Monaco captain in the squad travelling to Troyes for Saturday's season finale.

Falcao, who has a team-high 18 league goals this season, has sat out the 2016/17 champions' last two matches as a consequence of a thigh injury he sustained in the Week 35 goalless draw with Amiens SC.

However, the 32-year-old was included in coach Leonardo Jardim's 20-strong squad that headed to the Champagne region as the principality outfit seek to secure the win that will assure them of finishing runners-up to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Colombia international forward is unlikely to start the game, and with Stevan Jovetic and Keita Baldé still both sidelined, Jardim will again put his faith in teenage youth academy product Moussa Sylla.
