Attack-minded pair can serve up a classic
Lille and Monaco are within touching distance of the Ligue 1 summit and should see this as a big opportunity to put some pressure on league leaders Paris St-Germain, who went into this weekend’s round of fixtures only two points clear of the pair at the top.
Monaco have shown their capabilities to mix it in the title race when they came from two goals down to record a 3-2 win over champions PSG last month, but their away form is a worry and big improvements on the road are required.
Monaco have lost three of their five away league games which included a 4-1 dismantling at Lyon, who are level on points with Lille and Monaco having also collected 23 from 12 games.
Another tough test is in store for Monaco at Lille, who are unbeaten in six home league matches having won on four occasions.
The problem for Lille backers is that they have often struggled to produce a positive performance when having played in the Europa League just three days before – they have failed to win any of their four league games this season that have followed a midweek European tie.
With that in mind, backing the game to feature goals for both sides looks the way to go. Both teams have scored in eight of Monaco’s last ten away league games and their 12 matches have featured 39 goals at an average of 3.25 per game.
Lille have drawn five of their last nine matches in all competitions, so we predict an entertaining 2-2 draw.
