Monaco – Lyon Preview

Monaco hosts Olympique Lyonnais at the Stade Louis II in a match from the 16th round of the Ligue 1. This looks like an exciting game so let’s take a look in our sure soccer predictions.


Monaco look like title contenders this season. Les Monegasques are currently third in the standings with 30 points, just 6 points behind the leader PSG. They are playing good football under the manager Adi Hutter so the fans hope for something good at the end of the campaign.


Last weekend Monaco showed their strength again when they celebrated a 2-1 win during the visit to Rennes. Vanderson and Fofana scored at the Roazhon Park and these two goals were enough for the win. For Monaco it was their 9th win in Ligue 1 for the 2023/24 season.


Vanderson, one of the players who scored a goal against Rennes, won’t be available against Lyonnais. The Brazilian fullback was sent off at the Roazhon Park. He will miss the game.


Olympique Lyonnais are still at the bottom of the table, but at least they achieved a win in the previous round – 3-0 against Toulouse at home. Coached by the caretaker Pierre Sage, Les Gones took the win after a hattrick from Alexandre Lacazette.


It’s not clear if Lyonnais will have a new manager until Friday so it seems that Pierre Sage could lead the team again. He did a very good work last weekend so let’s see – maybe he will convince the board that he needs to remain at the position. One thing is for sure – Lyonnais need points right now as their position is not good at all.


That’s the sure soccer predictions for the Ligue 1 clash between Monaco and Olympique Lyonnais. The hosts are clear favorites to take the win here, but Lyonnais need points. Let’s see how this one will go.
