The match between Lyon and Monaco is the last game of round 18 in Ligue One. The Kids are on fourth place in the standings, but just three points behind the second team in the league – Lille. Bruno Génésio and his team had a tough away game in the Champions League versus Shakhtar Donetsk. The match ended as a 1-1 draw, but Lyon qualified for next phase of the competition. In Ligue One the team couldn’t win their last two games, conceding two goals against Stade Rennais and Lille.

Monaco have lost versus Borussia Dortmund, and the team dropped out from the Champions League after five losses and one draw. In the French league Thierry Henry and his players are improving their form and won two of their last three games, but the team is still in the relegation zone. Their two wins were away from home versus Caen and Amiens.

Lyon are far from their best performance and in their results prevail draws. The Kids conceded many goals and had just one clean sheet in the previous nine fixtures in all competitions. Monaco are showing improvement, and we think that they can score a goal, even if they don’t win the match. I will back Both Teams to Score, with Lyon 2-1 Correct Score.
