Monaco 23/10 to defeat Lyon in Friday’s Ligue 1 game
Competition: Ligue 1
Market: Monaco to beat Lyon
Odds: 23/10 @ Bet365
With the French league back on Friday, all of the teams will be looking to hit the ground running following a long and toilsome international break. With PSG looking in ominous form at the top of the table, visitors Monaco cannot afford a slipup, but they face stern opposition in the form of Lyon on Friday.
Lyon have been in fairly good form this season as they look to keep the gap between themselves and the top two sides to a minimum. Just one defeat has been marred by the fact they have drawn four games and won just three, yielding 13 points from their eight games. The hosts have been in good scoring form though, hitting the back of the net 17 times, but they will need to tighten up their defence against a free-scoring Monaco side.
The visitors arrive in good form, taking 10 points from a possible 15 in their last five, and having also scored 22 goals this campaign, second to only PSG. The summer exodus at the club clearly has not had as negative an effect as many thought it would, with the reigning champions still well in the hunt to defend their crown. While Lyon do represent one of the tougher tests Monaco will face in their defence this year, they really must be beating them if they are to challenge PSG to the Ligue 1 title. With this in mind, Bet365 are giving Monaco odds of 23/10 to beat Lyon.
