Note: The odds for this fixture are subject to change before kickoff. Please confirm your betslip with the bookmaker for updated prices.

Victory for Niko Kovac

Monaco’s chances of making it to the top three will depend on how Niko Kovac sets up his lineup on Sunday. The visitors are the clear favourites in this game and we expect them to get all the points. After losing a golden chance to claim the Coupe de France a few days, we expect Niko Kovac to field a strong starting eleven on Sunday against Lens. The hosts have lost all their last three games, halting their incredible run to the top five. A tougher opponent in Monaco will be hard for Franck Haise and his squad to break down.

Monaco to Keep a Clean Sheet

We are also backing a clean sheet victory for Monaco. The visitors are in the top three among teams that have kept clean sheets this season. With only one point above fourth-placed Lyon, a decisive win for Monaco should earn them good standing in the quest for top three and UCL places. It is a tight battle for the top three and Monaco can’t afford to let in more goals at this point.

Victory for Monaco in both halves

Monaco has won all their last five games in all competitions, four of which with a clean sheet. On the other hand, Lens has been inconsistent at home. The hosts have won twice, lost once and drew twice in their last five home games. They come into this fixture with three defeats in a row, one of which was a heavy home loss of 3-0 to Lille.

Fixture Preview: Monaco under Pressure to Finish in Top Three Hopes

A top-three finish for Monaco depends on how they play on Sunday 23rd May 2021. A win is okay but a draw or loss could be a detriment to their chances of finishing third in Ligue 1.

Lens

The hosts are sixth on Ligue 1 but they are not safe from seventh-placed Rennes with only one point cushion. A win for Lens will earn Franck Haise and his team a place in the newly created Conference League. However, the big question is can they stop supercharged Monaco from scoring and getting a win? Interestingly, Lens defeated Monaco 3-0 in the reverse, with two goals coming after Monaco’s defender, Axel Disasi 23rd minute red card for committing a last-man foul. Building on that win to deny Monaco six points is Haise’s main aim in this fixture.

Monaco

Niko Kovac will play his second game against Lens manager. Losing the reverse fixture and an immediate loss in Coupe de France are two daunting memories for the Croatian tactician. After 43 games in Charge, Niko Kovac boast 2.14 points per match, making him a top prospect to win this game against his Sunday opponent who has 1.59 points after 41 games at Lens.
