Olympique Lyon to Win

Out of the two top-four contenders, it is Monaco who have put up the better numbers in recent matches. However, it is tough to rule out a win for Lyon, who have the advantage of home ground irrespective that the match is played behind closed doors. Moreover, Les Gones have not lost at home to Monaco in April 2017, claiming the bragging rights in their past three meetings.

Total Goals Over 2.5

The last six H2H meetings at the Groupama Stadium have seen the Over 2.5 is realized. It has been the norm in Lyon’s matches, where it has been observed in 20 of their 33 Ligue 1 fixtures. For Monaco, the trend is higher and all but eight of their fixtures have seen less than three goals. Moreover, the principality club have seen it come to fruition in their four successive matches leading to this game.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

AS Monaco’s tendency to see goals has also been coupled with their ability to keep clean sheets. Such has been their form that both or one side has kept a clean sheet in their competitive outings on the road. Meanwhile, there has only been two shutouts witnessed in Lyon’s last ten home games. With the hosts likely to go on the offensive and Monaco struggling with injuries, goals should be observed on both ends of the pitch.

Lyon vs Monaco Fixture Preview

Olympique Lyon

After a disappointing 2019/20 campaign, Olympique Lyon are in Ligue 1 title contention. They managed to keep hold of their prized possessions last summer and the reluctance to give in to temptation is paying off. Rudi Garcia’s men are proving why European bigwigs had trouble dispatching off them in last year’s restructured Champions League meetings. Memphis Depay remains their talisman at the front. The Dutchman scored a brace against Nantes and will be gunning to dent Monaco’s hopes of silverware.

AS Monaco

Niko Kovac has finally stabilized the rocking Monaco boat. The Monegasques are third in the title race, two points behind leaders Lille with five matches remaining in the Ligue 1 campaign. At the moment, they are on a five-match unbeaten run in all competitions, with four successive wins in the Ligue 1. However, they have been plagued with injuries as six players receive treatments for various ailments. Against Lyon, Kovan will have his two prized possessions, Wissam Ben Yedder and Kevin Volland. It is the former who is in top form, scoring four goals in his last four competitive outings.
