Monaco vs Lens
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 16th December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).

Monaco come into this game having lost their last two in a row. They have been defeats against difficult opposition in Lille and Marseille but it may confirm to some that while Monaco are a good team they are going to come up short this season in trying to challenge for the title.

Monaco have slipped to sixth place and are six points behind the leaders Lille. The club have won 50% of their games and they will feel that they should be beating Lens at home.

Home form for Monaco is excellent and they are undefeated so far and have won their last 3 games in a row here.

Lens are in 9th place but could leap frog Monaco with a win. Their form has suffered lately though and that could be key for this game. Lens have picked up just 4 points from their last 12 and at the weekend they lost 3-2 at home to Montpellier.

Away form is good though for the club and they have won back to back matches coming into this one. They beat Dijon and Rennes and have won 10 points away from home from 18.

Monaco vs Lens: Head to Head

  • Monaco have not played Lens at home since 2014, Monaco won the game 2-0.
  • Monaco have scored 5 goals against Lens in the last two meetings.

Monaco vs Lens: Prediction

Monaco are odds on to win but still decent value and we will be backing the home side to win.

Monaco are a quality side who have faced some tough games, before that their form was very good and we don’t expect them to lose 3 games in a row.

Lens have travelled well lately but do not have a good record against Monaco and anything other than a home win we would be very surprised to see. Monaco has the quality to ease to victory and get themselves back in the hunt for a Champions League place.
