Lyon vs. Monaco Match Analysis and Prediction

Two sides are looking to make a name for themselves in the Ligue 1 lock horns this weekend. High flying Lyon will be playing host to Monaco. The match schedules for Sunday at the Stade de Gerland with kickoff at 8 pm.

Lyon made a comeback to winning ways following a narrow 3-2 win over side Strasbourg in their last outing. Monaco faced a hard battle in their last outing ending in a 1-1 draw to Montpellier.

Rudi Garcia went through a phase of dip of form since their triumphant exit from the Champions League. The dip of form saw the side lose to Montpellier while failing to register a win over Lorient, Nimes, and Marseille before their trip to Strasbourg.

After a strenuous dip in form, Lyon will be looking for some positive results in Serie A. The side has three testing fixtures against Monaco, Lille, and Saint-Etienne. Garcia will cherish not having to deal with a depleted squad ahead of their next encounter.

Another side that will have a depleted squad is their Sunday opponents. Monaco will have to contend without eight first-team players out after testing positive for coronavirus. Ben Yedder came to the rescue for their side after converting a penalty on the spot. Monaco has tough matches lined up against Bordeaux, Nice, and PSG.
