Monaco certainly capitalized on their luck in the UEFA Europa League against Red Star Belgrade in the middle of the week with a (1-0) win.
This is Monaco’s second consecutive (1-0) win, both away and despite boss Philippe Clement praising his team’s recent defensive qualities. Monaco is in 10th place in the table. After 6 rounds the team
In fact, this is the first time in history that Monaco have conceded four goals in a row in Ligue 1 home matches, and this is a record that Clement will definitely not want to extend.

Lyon were in their own game mid-week, albeit in the domestic arena and not in Europe, as they lost (1-3) to Lorient in Ligue 1.

The club have not lost back-to-back Ligue 1 games since October 2019, but after falling behind at half-time in four of their previous six away matches, it looks like Lyon could struggle from the start and in the process lose more ground on Ligue 1’s early leaders.

Lyon have an impressive squad and are determined to restore their Champions League status. Players like Alexandre Lacazette and Tete can show good results.
AS Monaco have not been successful this season yet and will need to step up this game. Lyon are the favourites.
