Is this year’s edition of French Ligue 1 going to be more interesting when it comes to the title race or PSG will once again dominate everyone and celebrate a couple of months before the end? AS Monaco and Lyon should play big roles in upcoming months that is for sure. Hosts of this match have struggled really hard in the previous edition, barely avoiding relegation, which would be a disaster and shock considering they were playing UCL finals not so long ago. Lyon are warm favorites to win this one judging by the odds. Away win is priced at 7/5 rate, while chances for Monaco to collect three points are at 2/1.
Let’s take a look at the results achieved during the preparation period on both sides. AS Monaco have drastically improved in the back. This squad was conceding more than one goal per match in Ligue 1 last year. So far they faced Everton (lost 1-0), Valencia (won 1-0), Braga (a goalless draw), Porto (won 1-0) and Sampdoria (won 1-0). As you can see they have kept a clean sheet in 80% of games! Can Monaco stop Lyon’s attacking trio?
Lyon have disappointed in the pre-season period. A lot of players have left the team, but still, the main goal for the upcoming season is top 3 placement. Lyon have lost to Bournemouth, Liverpool, Genoa, and Servette, scoring 5 goals only.
