The Lyon vs Monaco match will be played on Sunday, April 23, at the Olympic Lyon Stadium, Lyon. Lyon is currently 4th on Ligue 1 table with 54 points, while Monaco is 1st on the table with 77 points at the moment.


  • Lyon won only 3 out of their last 7 games in all competitions, but in the last two games played in Europa League they showed composure - they eliminated the favorite on paper Besiktas after a penalty shootout.
  • Monaco is in a spectacular form currently - they won 11 out of their last 12 games in all competitions. Their only defeat came in the League Cup match against PSG three weeks ago.


In their previous 10 meetings, Lyon recorded 4 victories, Monaco won 2 games, while 4 matches ended in a draw. In their last two games, we saw over 3.5 goals and Lyon won both of them.


Lyon is desperate to save their 4th place on the table. They have two points advantage over Marseille, but they also have two games in hand. Bordeaux is also two points behind them, and Lyon has one game in hand compared to them. The 4th place will give them a chance to compete in Europa League again, although Lyon will try to win the title in this year's Europa League and qualify for Champions League. They will play in semifinals against Ajax.

This season Monaco become one of the biggest surprises in European football. They were sensational both in Ligue 1 and Champions League, where they qualified for semifinals, and they will face Juventus. Young Mbappe will be one of the hottest prospects to grab in this summer's transfer window, although Monaco is desperate to keep him. Monaco is the leader because of the bigger goal difference than PSG, and they will have to win every game until the end of the season to lift the trophy in Ligue 1.

This should be an attractive match, full of goals. Monaco is the favorite, but Lyon shouldn't be underestimated.
