Lyon vs Monaco Preview:

Lyon and Monaco lock horns at the Groupama Stadium as the hosts will be eager to close the gap between themselves and the top 5. Lyon currently sit seventh in the table on 56 points, 4 points behind Lille at fifth and 9 points behind Monaco at fourth. The home game against Montpellier prevailed as one of the games of the season with Lyon coming back from a 4-1 deficit to win the game 5-4 – courtesy of Lacazette’s 4 goals and a 100th minute penalty. However, the 2-1 loss last weekend to Clermont Foot was an unexpected slip-up at the Stade Gabriel-Montpied. Laurent Blanc’s side have scored in each of their last nine matches in the league, which bodes well for their top scorer Alexander Lacazette to add more to his tally of 25 goals. Lyon have suffered only 2 losses in their last 12 league matches and optimism will be high among the players to reach the Europa Conference League spots, as they look to seek revenge for the 2-1 loss against Monaco in the reverse fixture at Stade Louis II.

Monaco on the other hand comfortably sit fourth in the table and should be confident of achieving Europa League next season. Their recent slip-ups have resulted in the dropping significantly below Marseille in the Ligue 1 table and have also afforded Lille a chance to catch up. They have dropped 7 points in the last 4 games, having conceded 8 goals in the process with big defeats coming at the hands of Lens and Montpellier. Having said that, Monaco have had a great record away from home, with only two losses in 17 matches, winning 10 in the process. Philippe Clement’s side have struggled in front of goal though, having scored just once in their last four league games following their 0-0 draw to Lille, failing to score despite having 8 shots. Tonight’s fixture couldn’t have come sooner for the Les Rouge et Blanc as Lyon have failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last 7 matches in all competitions as we anticipate a high scoring encounter at the Groupama Stadium.
