Struggling Lille will not be happy playing AS Monaco at the moment.   They are sitting just one point above the relegation zone following a very difficult start to the new season and they have scored just one goal from their last 5 matches.

The Marcelo Beisla led team won their first league match 3-0 which raised the hopes of their fans that this would be a very good season.

However, they have failed to record another victory since that win. M

Much is expected from Argentine manager Beisla, and he needs to get his team scoring goals soon enough to avoid a relegation battle later in the season.

They are not particularly poor defensively as they have managed to concede just 7 goals this season but their failure to create and take chances at the other end of the field is proving to be their greatest undoing.

AS Monaco look to have gotten over their shock 4-0 loss at Nice two weeks back as they picked up one point in a 1-1 draw with RB Leipzig in their first Champions League game before beating newly promoted Strasbourg 4-0 last weekend.

They are one of the highest scoring teams in Europe at the moment with 17 goals from their first 6 matches this season.

From their recent form, this game looks like a certain victory for them however they have managed to win against Lille just 11 times in their last 31 meetings making this an interesting match-up.
