Monaco vs Lyon Match Preview
Monaco have beaten Sampdoria (1-0) to bag their third win in four pre-season outings since late July, now hosting Lyon as they open the Ligue 1 campaign on Friday evening in hope they can build on the performances and get off on the right foot after a disappointing spell last term.
Les Monegasques have been rock-solid at the back and kept clean sheets on all of those occasions, which will have them just as motivated. Keeping it together at the back has been upsetting through most part of the last season and Leonardo Jardim will want more of the same early on.
Lyon will be no easy side to cope with and while they’ve seen some of the big stars leave in big-money moves this term, they should still be showing their worth. Tanguy Ndombele, Ferland Mendy, and Nabil Fekir have all left and brought in a combined total of over £115m. They have thus seen a busy summer and have a lot yet to prove.
Les Gones have struggled to keep it together at the back lately, though, and we’ve seen them suffer quite convincing losses to Liverpool (3-1) and Bournemouth (3-0) in last two outings, which will be just as much of a worry for the travelling fans at this point.
This should prove an exciting contest, though, and it could be tough to call now. Indeed, Monaco should still have what it takes to capitalize on the rivals inconsistency, as we now stick our necks out for another home win – which comes at 2/1 with bet365 and looks like more than a lively longshot.
We do hope for goals and with that in mind, we’re now also backing a Yes on Both teams to score, which comes at 3/4 with bet365. We were in for exciting matches on both ends lately and this adds to such a belief for many in the know.
