- Both sides have kept just one clean sheet apiece from nine games this term.
- Both teams have scored in Lyon’s last five Ligue 1 starts and in three of Monaco’s last four.
- Monaco have hit 13 goals in their last six league games, with Lyon managing the same tally across their last seven.
Goals look guaranteed at Groupama Stadium
Last season’s third and fourth placed teams square off in a potential thriller at Groupama Stadium this Saturday night, with goals looking a certainty based on the sides’ recent displays.
Both Lyon and Monaco endured sluggish starts to the campaign, but they’ve been gradually playing their way info form throughout the past few weeks, with Monaco winning four from six in Ligue 1 (D1, L1) including each of their last three, while Lyon have lost just one of their last seven, winning three.
As was the case so often last term, the teams are now flexing their muscles offensively, with Monaco hitting 13 goals in their last half dozen games, while Lyon have struck the same tally across their last seven.
With the forwards in such great form prior to the international break, we can only expect an end to end contest and plenty of chances when the teams meet this weekend – and that’s before we even consider how poorly both have performed defensively this season.
Dodgy defences set to be exploited
The sides have kept just one clean sheet apiece thus far from nine league matches, conceding a 24 goals overall between them. As such, both backlines will need to have improved markedly to cope with each other’s attacking threat, and we simply don’t see that being the case.
The teams’ need to carry on building momentum will also lead to a positive approach on both sides of the field, and both teams to score is our confident selection for a three point stake. That’s been the outcome in Lyon’s last five games and the trend can continue this weekend.
And based on the volume of goals struck between the pair and their defensive issues, 2-2 is our call for punters seeking an interest in the correct score market.
