Lyon and Monaco will meet in the 8th round of the League 1. Lyon did not find the form from last season, and the 9th position on the table is not something to be proud of. In some games, luck was not on their side, and better results are expected. The guests also play changeably, they can’t connect several victories, and the attackers have to show qualities.

Lyon vs Monaco Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Lyon vs Monaco Predictions
OL has taken just ten points from their opening seven Ligue 1 matches this season, winning only twice in the process. A 3-2 win at Strasbourg last time out means that Rudi Garcia’s team is unbeaten in four games. However, the win also ended a five-game winless run for the home team, as four of those five winless games finished in draws. Lyon head into this clash on the back of a seven-game unbeaten run in Ligue 1 on home soil, although four of those matches have ended in draws. Their recent home games in the French top-flight have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six Ligue 1 matches at the Groupama Arena. Midfielder Houssem Aouar has found the right role in the team, he is doing great, and it is difficult for this guy to take the ball away. Many clubs are interested in signing him. Memphis Depay is the best player for the home side, he has excellent dribbles, his greatest strength is speed, which makes this guy unstoppable. Lyon is without goalkeeper Anthony Lopes through illness.
The team from the principality enjoyed a mixed start to life under former Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovac. In fact, visitors have picked up just one point more than OL in Ligue 1 this season. The home draw 1: 1 with Montpellier for the last time means that Monaco has won only one of the previous four league matches. The visitors do not have a tremendous recent away record in the French top-flight, winning just two of their last nine games on their travels. Monaco has also lost their previous two away games in Ligue 1 against Rennes and Brest. Wissam Ben Yedder is a great striker, he has the experience and is expected to score as many goals as possible this season. He is a great dribbler, and his greatest virtue is speed. Gelson Martins is an excellent player, many teams are interested in this guy, and he has good dribbles. He is the future of Portuguese football. For the visitors, Russian playmaker Aleksandr Golovin and left-back Fode Ballo-Toure look set to miss out due to injury.
It is going to be a very tight clash in which both sides have the chance to take points. It won’t be surprising if the game ends in a draw
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score.
