Lyon vs Monaco Prediction & Match Preview

Lyon vs Monaco
France -Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 16th October 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Groupama Stadium.

Easily the game of the French Ligue 1 weekend will be between these two giants of French football as Lyon take on Monaco.

Both clubs would love to cut the points to runway leaders PSG and that won’t be easy. But both will need to find some consistency to challenge them.

Lyon come into this game in 10th place after a slow start however they have lost just once in their last five games although that was against PSG. Lyon’s last match finished 1-1 against Saint Etienne and they have drawn their last 2 games in a row. Lyon has 13 points and would go above of Monaco with a win at the weekend.

Monaco are in 6th place and like Lyon they started the campaign slowly but are one of the best form sides in the league and have won 3 matches in a row. In their last game they beat Bordeaux 3-0.

Away from home Monaco have lost one game but are unbeaten in their last three encounters and have the 4th best away record in Ligue 1.

Lyon vs Monaco Head to Head

  • Last season Lyon won this game 4-1.
  • Lyon have won the last 3 league meetings in a row.
  • There is a 90% chance to see over 2.5 goals.

Lyon vs Monaco Prediction

These games are always entertaining and we feel this is what we will witness again. There should be goals, and we will be backing Lyon to get the win.

A Lyon victory is a must because they could really fade away if PSG win at the weekend too and the gap is becoming too much. Lyon have got some really positive results against Monaco of late and they know how to up their game when they play the better sides.

We should remember that even when Lyon lost recently to PSG it was only a last minute goal and that game was heading for a draw. Monaco will be dangerous too but we should see an explosive game that is end to end with Lyon just about having enough quality being at home.
