AS Monaco reinforce European chances

AS Monaco and Olympique Lyonnais are both aiming to strengthen their chances of participating in the European stage. These two teams already have 27 matches prior to this match, where it was Lyon who recorded more wins. Lyon had 12 wins, compared to Monaco’s 10 wins, while the remaining five matches ended in draw. In the league table, Monaco is sitting at the fourth with 65 points, where they currently have a safe lead. However, they only have a five-point lead with the team at the fifth, so they cannot be relaxed. As for Lyon, they are at the seventh, and are aiming to secure a spot in the European stage. Lyon is currently with 56 points, but are still needing wins to improve their chances. This meeting will be on May 20, 2023, at 3:00 AM (GMT+8), with Lyon as hosts.

Monaco is aiming to secure their spot in the Champions League by widening their lead against the team at the fifth. Currently, they are with five-point lead, which is still a safe lead, but they want to add more points. A win in this match could only give them more lead, as they are eight points behind the team at the third. Unfortunately, Monaco is from a goalless draw against Lille on their last match, which is why they do not have a good momentum here. Despite their tumultuous season, they are lucky that they found themselves stabilizing again. Additionally, they have experienced players who could step-up for them. The likes of Wissam Ben Yedder continuously lead Monaco in scoring, where they gain strength from.

Malang Sarr remains to be unavailable for Monaco, as he is on the sides with groin injury since March. Mohamed Camara on the other hand is likely to miss this game, after missing their last match.

Lyon on the other hand is at the seventh of the league table with 56 points, and are looking to add more points on their names. A win in this match could retain their spot, but with a wider lead with 59 points. However, it is unfortunate that they are coming into this match from a 2-1 loss against Clermont Foot on their last match. On that match, it was Alexandre Lacazette who scored the lone goal for Lyon on that match. Additionally, they lost to three of their last five games in the league, which slowly lower their chances for the European stage. With that, they are looking to finally bounce back in this match as this game is a crucial match. Fortunately, they have guys like Caqueret, Lukeba, and Cherki, who are capable of giving them numbers.

Unfortunately, they are without Bradley Barcola, and Jerome Boateng who are both sidelined due to their injuries.
