AS Monaco vs Lille Preview

AS Monaco vs Lille

Competition – France Ligue 1

Stadium – Stade Louis II

Date: 16th March 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

AS Monaco head into this game as heavy favourites as Lille are in all kinds of relegation troubles at the moment.

The defending champions are already 14 points behind PSG and may not retain their league crown, however, they need to finish inside the top two and qualify for the Champions League.

They are already 9 points ahead of 4th place and they should secure European qualification again barring a late season collapse.

Monaco have a goal difference of +41 which is second best in the French Ligue 1 and they won the reverse fixture of this game 4-0.

With only 9 matches left to play, things don’t look so good for Lille as they are currently 19th in the league table.

They have a saving grace and that is that they are only one point away from safety.

Their major struggle seems to be scoring goals as they have netted only 28 times in 29 games this season.

Their top scorer is Nicolas Pepe who has just 9 goals while no other member of their team has been able to score more than 4 goals.

They have won 10 of their last 33 meetings with Monaco, losing 12 of those games.

Bookmakers unsurprisingly make Monaco strong favourites to come out on top in this game.
