MONACO VS LILLE
KICK OFF: SATURDAY 18TH AUGUST 2018 | 19: 00 CET
ligue 1 wk2 | Stade Louis II
A Fixture that has the potential for a Shock result with much drama as Monaco take on Lille
The home side has had the upper hand in the last two seasons, but they could be in for a shock this time out.
Monaco bounced back from their loss against PSG to record a comfortable win at Nantes. Rony Lopes, Stevan Jovetic, and Radamel Falcao were all on target. This combination should be formidable against Lille, especially since they all love scoring in this fixture. There are still some doubts on whether or not Monaco can notch up a successive win due to their poor pre-season performances.
Lille came from behind to thrash Rennes 3 – 1 providing a morale boost going into the new season. They haven’t won at Monaco in nearly ten years, but they have a young, energetic squad with ability. This team survived relegation by a whisker last season, and they have started in the best possible fashion.
Both teams were involved in high-scoring games on matchday one, so the tip here is backing a low-scoring contest. There’s also no better time for Lille to claim victory in this fixture than now.

- The last six games involving the two sides have seen over 2.5 goals scored.
