Lyon vs Monaco
Date: 13th October 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Groupama Stadium.
French Ligue 1 is back in action in some style offering a classic on Friday evening when Lyon host Monaco at Groupama Stadium.
Both sides have been struggling defensively before the international break and we could be in for a thrilling evening of football packed with goals on both sides of the court.
Les Gones will come into the game on the back of consecutive 3-3 draws in Ligue 1.
They also drew 1-1 with Atalanta in Europa League in the meantime as the winless streak extends to five matches.
Marinao Diaz and Nabil Fekir are the lone bright sides in Bruno Genesio’s squad as the duo shared the tally of 11 goals between them so far in the season.
Monaco notched 22 goals in eight games so far in the campaign (almost three per game on average) and they should clearly have plenty of room to deliver in the final third at Groupama Arena.
The main problem for Leonardo Jardim is, however, that goals normally come from a single man as Radamel Falcao as the Colombian striker notched as many as 12 so far.
This summer’s acquisition Stevan Jovetic will be sidelined due to injury he suffered wearing his national team’s shirt against Denmark last Thursday.
Lyon vs Monaco: Head to head
Lyon lead the head to head tie by three wins, but Les Monegasques came out victorious from the previous meeting played in April this year.
Each of last four H2H encounters played between the two teams saw both sides netting and this is exactly the scenario we are expecting to witness this time out as well.
Lyon vs Monaco: Prediction
You just can’t go wrong with the BTTS & Over 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 8/13 as a goal fest is guaranteed here-
That said, Radamel Falcao seems to be a decent call for the anytime goalscorer pick at 10/11.
