Lyon vs Monaco: the Best Predictions for the Big Game

These teams have lost only one game in their last five matches. However, AS Monaco currently sits 6th on the table with 14 points while the visitors are 10th with 13 points. Given the one-point gap between these teams, we expect a tough duel on matchday. We summarize our best three predictions for Lyon vs Monaco as follows:

Note: Odds from NetBet are subject to change.

Goals on both ends of the pitch

These teams have kicked off the season in fine scoring form, a performance we expect in this match. Both have scored 14 goals in nine matches. Of the 14 goals for Lyon, 11 were scored at home. On the other, Monaco scored half of the 14 goals away from home. Previous 20 meetings have had 10W for Lyon, 7W for Monaco and 3D, an indication that this fixture is always a tough duel between two of the biggest teams in French Ligue 1.

Goal galore

We are also expecting lots of goals in this match. A fixture between these teams has always been a high-scoring encounter. Notably, eight of the last 10 meetings had more than two goals, a trend we expect in this game.

Lyon to score first

While both teams are in fine scoring form, we think the hosts have the advantage to find the net first in this important fixture. The hosts won four of the last six meetings and lost twice within that duration. Lyon is only a point below Monaco even though they are five places apart. Home advantage should motivate the hosts to close the gap and the only way will be to score early in the game.

Match Preview: Can Monaco Close Up on Lyon?

Monaco is only a point below Lyon. And while five places separate the two sides, the point-difference signals a tight race in French Ligue 1. Looking at how the hosts have struggled recently, it seems things haven’t worked well for Lyon since Memphis Depay departed for FC Barcelona. Moreover, both teams have a similar scoring pattern and how the leak goals are based on the stats so far. With the first of the season here, we are expecting a battle of Supremacy between these teams. Lyon will bank on top scorers Moussa Dembele and Lucas Paquata both of whom have four goals in nine games to lead the attacking front. On the other hand, Monaco's top scorer, Wissam Ben Yedder who has five goals is expected to lead the frontline alongside Sofiane Diop who has three goals on matchday.
