Monaco will look to continue their Ligue 1 revival when they travel to the Groupama Stadium to face Lyon on Sunday at lunchtime. Lyon’s trip to Toulouse at the weekend was cancelled due to protests, but Monaco managed to win their visit to Amiens thanks to a brace from Radamel Falcao. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Lyon’s nine-game unbeaten streak across all competitions ended a fortnight ago as they lost 0-2 at home against Rennes. They were also undefeated in eight competitive home fixtures prior to that loss. Les Gones have struggled a bit of late and that’s why they sit only 4th in the standings, three points adrift of the second-placed Lille.
Monaco, on the flip side, had an awful Ligue 1 campaign overall, but they started to show signs of life recently. The Monegasques have won two of their last three league outings, including their 0-2 away victory at Amiens at the weekend. Actually, both their recent victories were registered in their last two league trips. The bad news is that Monaco are still second from the bottom in the league table, four points behind safety.
This clash used to be a derby in the past, but with Monaco’s struggle throughout this campaign, we expect Lyon to pick up all three points here. Our betting tips and predictions would back Lyon to win at odds 1.44.

First Goalscorer odds
Memphis Depay has been Lyon’s most dangerous player in front of goal so far this season, helping his side with five goals and six assists. He hasn’t scored in his last three league appearances, but we fancy him to get back to goalscoring ways here. Our first goalscorer prediction is Memphis Depay at odds 4.50.
