Monaco vs Lille Prediction: Ligue 1 Match | 14.05.2023

Monaco will be relying on favours from elsewhere if they are to finish in a Champions League spot. They face a must-win game this weekend against Lille, who will be looking to bounce back from a recent defeat in Ligue 1.


Ligue 1 Preview 

Monaco look set to miss out on a spot in the Champions League this season, as they have six points to make up on Marseille with just four matches remaining. It is still mathematically possible, but they will be relying on an unlikely slip-up from the side sitting above them. However, a fourth-place finish will still be considered a solid performance by Monaco this term, and victory this weekend could almost certainly ensure that finish. 

Monaco come into this fixture after winning their previous match, which was the perfect response after losing back-to-back matches. However, it would be a concern that Monaco have struggled against the teams in the top five this season, as they have won just once in seven matches.

Lille will desperately need a victory this weekend if they are to keep alive their hopes of finishing in the Europa League spot. They currently sit five points behind Monaco in the standings, and they come into this showdown after winning just twice across their previous four matches. Their defeat last weekend was their only loss over that same period. 

Their defeat last weekend was suffered against Reims, but they haven’t lost consecutive games in Ligue 1 since May 2022. Interestingly, based on expected points in the league this season, Lille would be sitting top of the standings. They will need to be more clinical in the final third this weekend if they are going to claim maximum points on the road. 

Monaco vs Lille Head to Head 

Monaco has a poor record in this fixture, as they have registered just one win in their previous five matches in the league against Lille. However, over that period, Lille has recorded just two wins, with two also ending in draws. 

Monaco vs Lille Prediction 

This should be a tense clash between these two sides in the French top flight this weekend, as both will desperately require maximum points. However, Monaco’s record against the top five is a huge concern, which means a chance will be taken on Lille to bounce back to winning ways after their defeat last weekend.
