Monaco – Lyon, Ligue 1 Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR MONACO - LYON
Monaco finally came out of the danger zone after several successful results. They are still very close to it, of course, but have won 7 points from their last 3 games and the more impressive is that they have won 2 consecutive wins at home. This is mentioned, because their victory against Toulouse on Feb. 2 was the first victory at home for Monaco in Ligue 1 this season.
Lyon played a brilliant match against Barcelona, which, however, consumed too much power and energy. They are now returning to Ligue 1, where they have a comfortable lead over the pursuers, St. Etienne and Marseille, or at least comfortable one before the round. Lyon are also in good shape and have gained much more victories since Monaco lately. What’s more, the kids have only 2 losses in the last 16 league games.
Monaco all season has many problems, because of injured players and finally some of them started to come back. Monaco have just 2 clean sheets as hosts this season. We do not think there is any chance of keeping the third one exactly against Lyon. Monaco, however, did not score a goal at home in just 4 games. And if they score goals, there is no better time to do so than now, when they started playing better. Prediction – BTTS at 1.56. Alternative option: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals at 1.90.
- 7 of the last 8 games between Monaco and Lyon have been BTTS and 6 of them had over 2.5 goals
- Lyon have only 2 clean sheets as a guest in Ligue 1
