Monaco - Lyon
Monaco have been irresistible in 2021, but one feels that confluence of injuries and COVID-19 may be a bridge too far against a Lyon side for whom this is the last chance saloon. Lyon s own injury issues, whether down to rotation or freshness, will also have their say here, as will the psychic damage of losing to Lille in such cruel fashion last week. Monaco have won 14 of their last 17 matches. Monaco have kept a clean sheet in their last 6 matches. There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 11 of Monaco s last 13 home games. Lyon are undefeated in their last 15 away matches. Monaco have scored at least 2 goals in 8 of their last 9 home matches. There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Lyon s last 3 games. Lyon have scored at least 2 goals in their last 3 matches. Gelson Martins and Aleksandr Golovin won t feature here owing to testing positive for COVID-19.
Stevan Jovetic will miss out here after being forced off against Angers. Monaco could also opt to play three at the back, with Sofiane Diop and Ruben Aguilar asked to play on the flanks. Tino Kadewere came off the bench against Lille and could start on the flank for the visitors. Jason Denayer is a doubt after not being fit enough for the bench against Lille. Mattia De Sciglio and Sinaly Diomandé are both among Rudi Garcia s option if the Belgian is unavailable.
