Lyon vs Monaco – Ligue 1: Ligue 1 is back after the international break…
And with an excellent match in perspective, with Lyon hosting Monaco on a 9th round match.
Lyon is in 8th place on the league table with 13 points, 6 behind their opponents here. Getting 3 wins and 4 draws, the hosts have only lost once on the first 8 rounds.
Their goal record mirrors very clearly their offensive quality (already having scored 17 goals so far), but also a lot of weaknesses on the defensive process (already having conceded 13 goals, which results in an average of about 1.70 goals per match).
The highlight of this team is the youngster Mariano Diaz, on loan from Real Madrid, who already has 6 goals in the league, and the talented striker Fékir, who has scored 5 goals.
Monaco went into the international break occupying the 2nd place on the league table with 19 points, 3 behind leaders PSG.
The side managed by Leonardo Jardim has been getting some inconsistent performances, both in the Ligue 1 and the Champions League, but there is a common variable on their matches,
which is the high number of goals. On the 11 official matches they’ve played so far, the matches have ended with 3 or more goals in 8 of them.
With the departures of players like Bernardo Silva and Mbappé, the highlight of this side is naturally Radamel Falcão, who already has an incredible record of 12 goals in 8 rounds.
Lyon vs Monaco – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Both teams play attacking football, focusing very hard on offense and presenting a very high goal scoring average, with Lyon averaging 3.8 goals/match and Monaco having an average of 3.9 goals/match.
On this context, I expect nothing more than a match filled with good moments of football and spiced with several goals, like we have come to expect.
