AS Monaco vs Lyon Preview

AS Monaco vs Lyon

Competition – France Ligue 1

Stadium – Stade Louis II

Date: 9th August 2019

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

AS Monaco have built some consistency in recent pre-season games and their fans will be keen to see if their team can translate that to a first win in their opening league fixture here.

Monaco faced Lyon twice at home last season and won both games to boost their head-to-head record against this opponent.

The Municipality side have won three of their last 4 pre-season games ahead of this league opener.  What is even more impressive is that Monaco have kept a clean sheet in all of those game and that form at the back would give them confidence to go all out for the win in this game.

Lyon haven’t had as good of a pre-season as their host and they come into this struggling to keep things tight at the back.

Lyon have lost 4 of their last 5 pre-season games and come here after conceding 6 goals and scoring just one in their last 2 pre-season games against Liverpool and Bournemouth.

This game is always a big affair and despite Lyon’s poor pre-season form, expect an interesting, competitive game in the opening week of France Ligue 1.

Goal markets point to an interesting game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while Moussa Dembele is favourite to score the opening goal of the game closely followed by Yann Kitala.

This game gets underway at 19:45 BST.
