Lille and Monaco will drop the curtain on Matchday No 12 in Ligue 1 with their derby on Sunday night at Decathlon Arena – Stade Pierre Mauroy.
The two teams are separated by just two points in the top half of the standings and the outcome of this match could have a huge significance later on in the battle for the European positions.
Lille will enter the tie in higher spirits having stormed past Strasbourg 0-3 on the road last Friday.
It was one of their best displays of the entire season, the one in which they controlled the happenings on the pitch from the first to the last minute.
Jonathan David stole the show by completing a brace, while Timothy Weah did his part with some fantastic assists on the occasion.
Lille now have three wins in the last four Ligue 1 contests and they have kept their net untouched in each of the previous two games against Lens and Strasbourg.
Monaco, on the other side, ended their five-win streak in the league by playing only a 1-1 draw at home to Clermont seven days ago.
Les Monegasques were big favorites on the occasion but they suffered an early setback through the red card from Mohamed Camara.
Monaco did get an early lead still via Breel Embolo’s penalty kick but they conceded early in the second half for the 1-1 stalemate at the end.
