Lille vs Monaco (By: DamirJ)
Lille had a difficult game last weekend away to St Etienne, but the side managed to get a victory thanks to a late goal. However, must be said that their victory was fully deserved and should have been with a bigger margin as they completely outplayed their hosts. They are undefeated in last nine rounds strongly holding the second position for now.
Monaco was set as a favorite against Bordeaux and was actually much better than the opponent, however only got a point in a 1:1 game. They were better, took the lead but got leveled up from the penalty kick and failed to find a way in the last twenty-five minutes despite too many chances. They are undefeated in last six rounds (three wins and three draws), being six points above the red zone now.
The hosts miss right back Pied (9/0). The guests miss suspended forward Falcao (25/12) and central back Badiashile (16/1). Forward Mboula (7/0) is injured plus a couple of really long-term absentees.
- Lille have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 3 home matches against Monaco.
Monaco has improved recently and I expect them not to be too defensive here either. Lille remains a slight favorite, however, Monaco should be able to make this match as interesting and as difficult as possible for the home team. Value is with goals here.
