Lyon vs Monaco by Danlaw

This is a match between two teams who have shown inconsistencies this season. Lyon is 8 on the table having played 8 matches and won 3, drawn 4 and lost just once, which was their 2:0 loss against the high flying, big spending PSG. For me, they were unlucky to lose the match as the two goals had massive deflections. Lyon have had 4 score draws in their last five matches in all competitions. They do play well but can't just seem to stop drawing.


Monaco, though second on the log, cannot be said to be much better than Lyon. They lost four key players in the summer and it was always going to affect them. Though they replaced the departed players, the new players would certainly need time to gel.


Monaco will be without many of their key players for this game due to injuries, suspensions and jet lag. Players like Falcao will be rested for their crucial champions league game next week as he would have suffered jet lag returning from South America and this game is coming too soon for him. fabinho is suspended, Jovetic is injured. Lemar and Adama Dakhaby are doubtful.


Lyon also have injury concerns of their own. Pape Cheikh and Clément Grenier are injured. Marcelo is suspended.. Fernando Marçal is not fully fit and he is doubtful for the match.


The Monaco Manager has promised to give opportunities to the fringe players and went on about how hungry they are to step up. Lyon's manager is under pressure to start winning. Even the club President stated the manager was on the brink. Even though a couple of players will be missing for both sides , i expect the teams to still put up a spectacle and create goal scoring chances.


I do not expect Lyon to lose this match as they play at home and have not lost there in a while.'They also have a higher percentage of key players available than Monaco and above all, their Manager is under intense pressure to start winning and he may just start with this match. I support a Lyon win or draw & both teams to score.
