Lyon’s Ligue 1 title challenge may have petered out, but Monaco’s certainly hasn’t and they can enhance their trophy claims with a home victory over Les Gones.

Monaco have won 14 of their 17 league games in 2021 to stay within two points of the summit and they are not shying away from the challenge, having won five on the bounce.

Their remarkable run, which has featured 2-0 win at title rivals Paris St-Germain, has seen them concede only once in nine games, with them keeping six straight clean sheets.

Niko Kovac’s side also boasts the best home form in the Ligue 1 having collected 38 points from 17 fixtures and this may be the perfect time for them to welcome Lyon to the south coast.

The visitors have won only two of their last six league matches and during that period they have lost crunch title clashes at home to PSG (4-2) and Lille (3-2).

It is also worth noting that Monaco had the measure of Lyon in the Coupe de France quarter-finals just over a week ago, with Kovac’s men winning 2-0 away at the Groupama Stadium.

All things considered, this looks an excellent opportunity for Monaco to ramp up the pressure on Lille and PSG and the top of the Ligue 1 table and we are opting for a repeat 2-0 scoreline.
