Lille vs Monaco predictions and betting tips ahead of this Ligue 1 game, kicking off at 7:45pm on Friday 22nd September 2017. Read below to see our tipsters’ predictions for this match.
Lille’s bright start to the season has faded away, and they’re set to struggle this weekend when they host champions Monaco. The visitors have managed a strong start despite their summer sales, and they’re set for another result this weekend. We’re starting our Lille vs Monaco predictions with the best recommended bet.
Monaco’s huge summer should have left them scrapping for the European spots, but their title challenge has been fantastic so far. They’ve managed to stay at the same level with a new look side. Lille would have been expecting to be competing with Monaco, but Marcelo Bielsa is having a horror start at his new side. After three defeats in their last five, we see Monaco taking all three points in this clash, so we’re kicking off our Lille vs Monaco predictions by backing an away win. Monaco are well priced at 7/10 with BetVictor ahead of this clash.
Lille’s main issue has been scoring goals, despite starting with some free-flowing displays. Four of their last five games have seen them fail to score, and that’s something Monaco can capitalise on. They’ve bought well in defence, and manager Leonardo Jardim is regarded as a defensive minded coach who went on the attack because of the side he had last season. We should see a more solid Monaco team this term, so we’re backing an away win to nil at 11/5 with Coral in our Lille vs Monaco predictions.
With the hosts unlikely to score, we can see Monaco winning by quite a distance this weekend. The visitors have scored nine times in their last three games, and they should add a few to that tally here. We’re backing a 3-0 win for the champions to wrap up our Lille vs Monaco predictions, and that one can be backed at 14/1 with Ladbrokes.
Monaco have won their three meetings with Lille last season, while they’ve scored 10 goals across those encounters. The hosts have at least scored six times in their last four against Monaco.
With a long break between this clash and the next round of the Champions League, expect Monaco to be at full strength. Lille boss Marcelo Bielsa is likely to tinker as he tries to get his side up and running.
