Lyon can promise is an entertaining fixture, especially since they have struggled badly on the defensive end in recent games where they have conceded goals in 8 out of their last 11 games in all competitions. They have been shipping goals with regular ease conceding 7 goals in just their last 3 completed matches alone. Offensively, they will rely on the likes of Lacazette, Fekir, Cornet, Tolisso and Valbuena to pump the goals in order to help them qualify. They performed extremely well in their game against Besiktas and despite a hatful of chances, they were only able to put one past the Besiktas defense.
Monaco have been the darling of Europe; a team built purely out of a moneyball strategy; they have delivered with consistency that has seen Monaco jump up to the top of the French Ligue 1, live with PSG with a game in hand. Monaco will look to be extract revenge against this Lyon side that beat them 3-1 at home due to them playing with 10 men for most of the game. Monaco have been in imperious scoring form netting 11 goals in their last 5 games alone led by the young sensation Mbappe along with great support from the likes of Falaco, Bernardo and Germain. Monaco themselves haven’t been keeping many clean sheets recently, and have leaked goals in 12 out of their last 14 games; and are more focused on outscoring their opponents to win than defending.
This game promises pure entertainment and most of Monaco’s games due promise at least 3 goals in them, so over 2.5 Goal line.
