French league’s round 18 main event will be the Monaco vs Lyon derby as it is expected to be a tough game for both sides. Monaco who are chasing Nice at the top of the table will be hosting Lyon at the Stade Louis II in an attempt to keep toe-to-toe with Nice in the title race.
The hosts have been in a terrific form in recent weeks as Monaco have dropped only 2 points in their last 5 league games. The team managed to collect a total of 13 points from a possible 15 in that same period, unbeaten in all 5 games. Their last game was against Bordeaux away from home where they beat their hosts with 4 goals to nil.
Monaco are sitting second in the league table with 39 points from 12 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses. They have scored 53 goals and conceded 16 since the start of the season. They are by far the most scoring team in all 5 major leagues in Europe.
Leonardo Jardim, who already had the luxury to rest seven of his regular starters in midweek, has a clean bill of health ahead of the reception of Lyon. Depending on Benjamin Mendy’s fitness, the Portuguese may field his favoured XI against one of his title rivals.
The visitors have been in a terrific form as well as Lyon only lost one game in their last 5. The team collected a total of 12 points from a possible 15 in that same period. They’ve won their last two games in Ligue 1 with the last game ending in a 1-0 victory over Stade Rennais at home.
Lyon are sitting in 5th place in the league table with 28 points from 9 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses with a game in hand. They have scored 29 goals and conceded 18 since the start of the season.
Jérémy Morel will probably start over Maciej Rybus as he brings more security than his teammate at the back. Emanuel Mammana will aim to come back into the XI in Ligue 1 after returning from injury in midweek.
