Ligue 1: Monaco vs Lyon preview, team news, prediction and tips
May 1


Monaco will lock horns with Lyon in the Ligue 1 matchday 35 at the Stade Louis II on Sunday. The kick-off is at 21:00 CET.


Just 10 days after Monaco's 2-0 victory at Lyon the French Cup quarter-final, the Monegasques will play hosts to Rudi Garcia's men in the French top flight. Monaco have gone on to claim a 1-0 win over Angers in the Ligue 1 since then and now continue to challenge Paris Saint-Germain and Lille for the domestic title. As things stand now, Niko Kovac sit in third, one and two points adrift of PSG and Les Dogues respectively.

Les Gones, in contrast, followed their defeat to Monaco with a 3-2 loss to league leaders Lille last weekend and will travel to the French Riviera occupying the fourth spot in the table, four points behind their forthcoming apponents.

Team news

Despite all their success since the turn of the year, a Covid-19 outbreak in the Monaco squad could put an end to their title hopes already this weekend. Aleksandr Golovin, Gelson Martins, Enzo Millot, Chrislain Matsima, Eliot Matazo, Krepin Diatta are all unavailable for the hosts after contracting coronavirus while Stevan Jovetic and Sofiane Diop remain on the sidelines with injuries.

Lyon, meanwhile, have no confirmed absentees for Sunday's showdown.


As mentioned, Kovac has lost a number of his key players due to Covid-19 for this one and thus Lyon have a great chance of getting revenge on the Monegasques for the French Cup elimination on the weekend. It's all but impossible to predict how Monaco will cope with all their absentees but what looks certain is that this clash promises to be a hugely entertaining one.
