Do the Monegas go back to their old strength? Here is our betting tip!
Season opener in Ligue 1 and it’s time for the first crash: AS Monaco meets Olympique Lyon on Friday night! The Monegasques open the new competitive season with a home game against Champions League participants Lyon and are looking to make amends. Last season, AS Monaco played a disastrous season and was able to narrowly avoid the super-GAU in the form of a descent. The red-whites want to start again this year, but have caught up with Olympique Lyon at the season opener a very tough opponent. Last season the Monegasques won a home win against Lyon – will it work again?
Football Betting Tips Monaco vs Lyon
After the relegation last season, AS Monaco also starts the new season under coach Leonardo Jardim. In the summer, the Monegassen had to cope only with Youri Tielemans a heavy departure. In the current squad, the Jardim squad is certainly one of the potential candidates for the Champions League grid positions. Already the last season has shown, however, that the Kaderstärke on the slip of paper does not have much meaning. At the first endurance test against Olympique Lyon will show in what condition the Jardim Elf is currently. Winning the Monegasens, at AS Monaco against Lyon odds of 3.00 are paid for a tip to the hosts.
Monaco – Statistics & Current Form
A season to forget: AS Monaco started catastrophic, but resisted a descent but with all their strength. On the last match day, the Monegassen separated from the relegation place only two points. The eight-time French champion escaped the super-GAU, because high performers would have been unlikely to hold on a descent. AS Monaco wants to return to its old strength this season. The monegases will not be able to change much in the dominance of PSG. The interim championship 2016/17 therefore probably remains a fluke.
Despite the strong individualists in the offensive AS Monaco has had significant problems with the goal last year. In addition to the weak offensive performance but also the vulnerable defensive was a decisive reason for the catastrophic season. 57 goals were scored in 38 games. During the summer break Leonardo Jardim had enough time to tackle the problem areas of his team. At the end of the preparation Monaco could deliver convincing performances and stayed in friendly matches against Valencia, Braga, FC Porto and Sampdoria without conceding.
With Gelson Martins AS Monaco could tie a loaner tight. For just under 30 million euros comes the 24-year-old Portuguese from Atletico Madrid. In addition, the Monegasques secured the services of Montpellier keeper Benjamin Lecomte and defender Ruben Aguilar. With Youri Tielemans, who was on loan since the beginning of the year, there was only one significant departure in the team of Leonardo Jardim.
The Monaco offensive can be quite impressive with players like Martins, Lopes, Balde and Golvin. To what extent the team remains so, is not yet foreseeable, especially since further departures can not currently be ruled out. Pellegri, Geubbels, Jovetic and Subasic will miss the match against Lyon due to injury.
Expected lineup of Monaco:
↪ Lecomte – Chadli, Jemerson, Badiashile, Ballo-Toure – Henry, Golovin, Fabregas – Gelson, Sylla, Lopes

Lyon – Statistics & Current Form
The champion in the French Ligue 1 is known to be fixed before the start of the season. The fight for the Champions League grid positions, however, remains largely exciting. Last season, two teams behind OSG Lille and Olympique Lyon secured the direct right to start the group stage of the premier class behind PSG. “OL” was behind PSG the strongest offense of the French league and knew how to convince at a strong end of the season. Nevertheless, coach Bruno Genesio was not renewed. Sylvinho takes over the line this season. The Brazilian receives support from his compatriot and former Lyon player Juninho, who was presented as sports director at “OL”.
In preparing for the new competitive season, Sylvinho has been able to celebrate only one victory. The test-game success against Arsenal except Lyon conceded in each of the four Test matches at least two goals. Departures by defender Ferland Mendy or midfielder Tanguy Ndombele will certainly leave their mark. New entrants such as Thiago Mendes (OSC Lille) have the potential to be an adequate substitute, but the positive impression was largely absent in the preparation. With Nabil Fekir Lyon also lost another key performer.
The handwriting of the new coach could not really be read. Playing Lyon at the season opener as already in the preparation, does not really speak much for a Monaco against Lyon prediction on the guests. In addition to the defensive vulnerability was missing especially the offensive liveliness with the Sylvinho Elf. However, preparations in preparation should not be overstated, especially since teams in competitive games present much better than in the insignificant test matches. Although Lyon under the new coach Sylvinho will be difficult to assess, the squad quality at “OL” is undisputed. In the end, if the Monegasese go away, Monaco will be rewarded with lucrative odds against Lyon.
Expected formation of Lyon:
↪ Lopes – Dubois, Andersen, Denayer, Marcal – Tousart, Mendes, Aouar – Traore, Depay, Dembele
Last matches from Lyon:
⚽️ 03.08.2019 – Bournemouth Vs. Lyon 3: 0 (friendly)

⚽️ 20.07.2019 – Lyon vs.. Genoa 3: 4 (Friendly Match)
