Lyon and Monaco face each other in direct confrontation to direct ranking in the Champions League. The match of the 37th round of the French “Ligue 1” is on Saturday, May 7, from 20:00 UK at the stadium “Parc Olympique Lyonnais”.
Currently, both teams have equal points in the standings as the hosts are second with a better goal difference. Lyon is unbeaten in nine consecutive games in the league and their good series allow them to overtake Monaco. The good results of the team started in late February when defeating champion Paris Saint-Germain 2:1 at home. Then Lyon recording six wins and two draws and guarantee himself almost certainly at least participate in the qualifiers of the Champions League.
Monaco has many problems before the upcoming match. Fabinho is suspended for a game at “Parc Olympique Lyonnais” while Coentrao os injured. Sidelined are still Toulalan and Pasalic thus four key players will be available Leonardo Jardim for perhaps their most important match of the season.
In the last round, Monaco recording expected victory over Guingamp 3:2 at “Stade Louis II”, returning to winning ways after a draw with Rennes in the last round. Monegaskite has only one win in their last seven away games, and the problems in the composition, their task looks very complicated and will be a big success if they take at least a point from Lyon.
In the first half both teams separated by one point after a draw 1:1. Monaco without success against “Les Gones” in three consecutive league games, but remove them in the tournament League Cup at the end of 2014. Lyon has a positive balance against this opponent at home – 9 wins, 7 draws, and 4 losses in a total of 20 games.
