Monaco vs Lyon – Coupe de France: This season’s Monaco is a Monaco weaker in terms of quality, but one that has maintained their attacking style and their good dynamics.
Even having lost some important players, they are clearly one of the best French teams and although it is almost impossible for them to defend their Ligue 1’s title,
they intend to win the Coupe de France here and this way win something on this season, since they ended up being eliminated from the Champions League on a relatively accessible group.
Leonardo Jardim’s team has been playing well, dropping points here and there but still being on the fight for 2nd place with Lyon and Marseille. This match is decisive, and Monaco are aware of the difficulties, because Lyon has been strong.
Lyon is a team with quality, a well-organized team that has been playing good football. This team’s attack has been very strong, with Fékir being the highlight along with Mariano.
Memphis has also been an important player and on the last round, he was the one that came off the bench to give Lyon the 2-1 win over PSG.
Lyon is in 2nd place of Ligue 1, they have been playing flashy and quality football and except for a draw at home with Angers, they have been on a good streak of wins, and some of them were on very tough grounds.
Lyon breathes confidence and they intend to advance on this competition. They are very motivated after having beaten PSG 2-1 at home, on a crazy match, with excitement until the end.
Monaco vs Lyon – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This encounter should be very well contested between two teams that like to attack and play attacking football.
I don’t always like to go with the Overs on French matches, but here I expect goals, just like I went with the Over 2.5 Goals on the Monaco-Nice match that finished 2-2.
Here, I believe that the match will start off with a good dynamic, especially imposed by Monaco that will want to take advantage of that, playing at home.
Lyon, very motivated and with a lot of confidence after having beaten PSG, know that they can go to Monaco win and advance in the Cup, so I expect goals from them as well here.
Without any doubt, we should have more than 2.5 goals here, because both teams have quality on the attack and will play attacking football.
