The title race in France is more fierce than ever. Four teams have still chances to compete to lift the title in Ligue 1 at the end of May. Lille and PSG are the strong favourites to become champions but we should not leave the constant-performing team of Monaco and Olympique Lyonnaise. Today we are going to present to you one of the games that could turn to be decisive for the title race – Monaco against Lyon. The clash is set to be played at Stade Louis II Stadium in Monaco. The official kick-off is set at 20:00 GMT 0.

More about Monaco’s Ascent

After the poor start of the season, Monaco managed to find their best form and currently, the team managed by Nico Kovac goes unbeaten in 9 games as it is yet to concede a single goal in those matches. The form of Monaco in 2021 has been just fantastic as the team recorded only 1 loss out of 17 games, only 2 draws and 14 wins. The good form of the lethal attacking duo of Kevin Volland and Wissam Ben Yedder is responsible for the ascent of the “Les Monégasques”. The forwards have scored 15 and 18 goals respectively.

Lyon, Depay, Garcia

What about Lyon? The team is also having a pretty decent season so far. Lyon easily wins against the teams from the lower part of the table but somehow always underperforms in the important games. Lyon was eliminated in the Cup by Monaco (0-2), lost the decisive game against Lille at home (2-3) and was smashed by PSG (2-4). Perhaps, the 4th place is what the team actually deserves. Memphis Depay is having a great season, Rudi Garcia is perhaps the right manager at the moment but the team is struggling with the big teams for now.

Our Verdict

It was not long ago when Monaco won against Lyon. The hosts have been more consistent throughout the season and deserve to be involved in the title race to a higher extent. We think that Monaco will win this one.
