Monaco has not been very successful in Ligue 1 so far. Despite a recent 1:1 draw with PSG, the club is in tenth place with eight points. Rennes is ninth ahead of Monegasque only on additional parameters. Philippe Clement’s charges won only once in their last meetings – against Nice (0:1) on the sixth round. Prior to that, the team alternated between defeats and draws.
The royal club also started in European competitions this week. In the first round of the Europa League the team defeated Crvena Zvezda (1:0).
Lyon has a different situation in the French championship. The team is in fourth place with 13 points. Lorient in fifth place is behind the “lions” only on additional parameters. And it was their pursuer that Peter Bosz’s charges lost on the last round – 1:3. Prior to that, the Lions regularly won and shared points with their opponents.
In this match, we do not expect a productive game from the rivals. Both clubs played a match in the middle of the week – “Monaco” in the Europa League, and “Lyon” – in the postponed round of League 1. Therefore, in the confrontation between equal opponents we do not expect to see an active attacking game.
We bet on the total of less than three goals. In the line from the betting company PariPesa this outcome is estimated at 1.93
If we choose the favorite in this pairing, we are still inclined to the success of the guests. “Lyon” was better in the new season – almost only won. “Monaco” has not won much in six rounds of the championship. In our opinion, the Monegasque are now far from their best form.
Another bet on Lyon win at odds of 2.80 from the bookmaker
