Monaco’s Masterclass vs. Struggling Lens

Key Stats
– Monaco boast an impressive 10 goals in just three matches this season.
– Wissam Ben-Yedder, Monaco’s star forward, has already netted four goals.
– Struggling Lens have conceded a worrying seven goals in their first three outings.

Monaco sit proudly at the pinnacle of the Ligue 1 table after an impressive beginning to their campaign. With three games under their belt, they’ve amassed a commendable seven points, only slightly marred by their 3-3 standoff with Nantes. Though the Monegasques initially seemed vulnerable, trailing by 2-0 in just 15 minutes, their resilience shone through. Spearheaded by Takumi Minamino’s consistency, having found the net for the third time in successive matches, and Wissam Ben-Yedder’s outstanding fourth goal of the season, they’ve shown their mettle.

Moreover, a mention must be made of Myron Boadu, who in a thrilling twist, sprung from the bench to secure an 85th-minute draw for Monaco. These feats become even more remarkable when you consider their significant ball possession against Nantes, a staggering 66%. The team unleashed a barrage of 27 shots, with 10 piercing through to the target, constraining Nantes to a meagre three attempts.

Commencing their season with a 4-2 demolition of Clermont, followed by a decisive 3-0 victory against Strasbourg, it’s evident that Adi Hutter’s brigade is on fire, boasting 10 goals in the opening trio of matches.

Lens’ Looming Worries

Lens, unfortunately, paint a contrasting picture. The team that once almost dethroned Paris Saint-Germain last season now languishes in the early stages of this season. While they were poised to make a grand entrance, the reality has been less than flattering. Franck Haise’s squad seems to be trapped in a quagmire of low confidence and form. Their unsettling start is manifest in their mere single point garnered from the first three matches. Their 3-1 capitulation to PSG further underscores their frailties.

However, to dismiss Lens outright would be unjust. Their impressive record last season, with just four defeats and conceding only 29 goals, is still fresh in memory. Nonetheless, the current season’s beginning, with seven goals conceded in three matches, sets alarm bells ringing.

Team Dynamics and Standouts

Monaco’s successful start is also attributable to their fresh acquisitions. Folarin Balogun’s addition, after a stellar 21-goal season with Reims, adds depth to their offensive tactics. Furthermore, Denis Zakaria and Mohammed Salisu enhance the options available to Hutter, despite a slew of injury setbacks in the squad.

Lens, on the other hand, is grappling with injuries, notably the absence of Jimmy Cabot. They’re likely to deploy a 3-4-2-1 formation with Florian Sotoca at the helm, supported by Adrien Thomasson and Angelo Fulgini.

Monaco’s BettingTips4You Expert Ratings indicate a dominant stance. Players like Minamino and Ben-Yedder have ratings of 8.40 and 7.80, respectively, pointing towards their impactful performances. In contrast, Lens’ top player, Florian Sotoca, trails with a 7.37 rating.


  1. Monaco’s Victory with Goals from Both Teams: Based on Monaco’s superior offensive record and Lens’ defensive frailties, it seems plausible to predict a win for Monaco. However, given that both teams have managed to find the net in their recent games, a ‘Both Teams to Score’ bet can spice up the odds.
  2. Correct Score: Given the offensive power of Monaco and the shaky defence of Lens, a 3-1 victory in favour of Monaco seems like a justified prediction.
  3. Goal Scorer’s Prediction: Wissam Ben-Yedder, with his current form, is primed to be the one to watch. A safe bet would be on him to score during the match. An ambitious side-bet? He might just be the first to find the net.
