AS Monaco will be seeking revenge against Lille when the two sides lock horns for the second time in a week, hoping to avenge the 3-0 loss in the Coupe de la Ligue in midweek.

Match status: 2019-20 Ligue 1 - Matchweek 19
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco)
A second meeting in a single week, Stade Louis II will be looking to separate the shaft from the wheat when these two sides lock horns in a Ligue 1 encounter on Saturday evening.

The hosts head into this game, spotting a slightly worse record than their counterparts, sitting 9th on the log with 25 points from a possible 51. Les Monegasques are unbeaten in their last three fixtures in the league, the most recent of which was a goalless draw at Angers.

With both sides gearing up for a grueling encounter at Stade Louis II, free-flowing attacking football is expected from both sides as they go all out for victory.

AS Monaco vs Lille Team News

The home side were a little disappointing on the last match-day, failing to find a way past the stubborn Angers’ defense despite seeing more of the ball throughout the game. Manager Leonardo Jardim could not hide his disappointment as he was seen barking orders at his players as the game wore on.

Huffing and puffing, hustling and bustling, hassling and harrowing throughout the course of the game, it was just not to be for Les Monegasques as they were forced to settle for a measly point, extending their unbeaten run to three on the trot.

Leonardo Jardim’s side definitely know how to secure victories on home turf having won five of their previous eight games here. More importantly, they are on a stellar five-game winning run in front of the home support.

Their last game on this ground saw them sweep lowly Amiens under the carpet via a comfortable 3-0 score-line. A win against impressive Lille could see them climb up to 7th place on the ladder, given results elsewhere go their way.

Lille, on the other hand, are having the time of their life in the French Ligue 1 this season. They sit 3rd on the standings, six points clear of this weekend’s opposition AS Monaco. Despite exiting the Champions League in frustrating fashion, they have refused to allow European disappointment creep into their domestic football.

Four points behind second-placed Marseille, their ultimate objective will be to keep up the pace with Andre Villas-Boas’ side. A win against AS Monaco on Saturday will do them the world of good in their bid to usurp Marseille into second place.

Their current form could not be any better, having registered four wins in the league. Their last away game saw them edge out Lyon in a thrilling encounter while securing victory on the last match-day in a 2-1 win over Montpellier.

However, their present away form does nothing but flatters to deceive. Their overall away form has been nothing to write home about having picked up a measly five points from a possible 24.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Monaco: Willem Geubbels, Henry Onyekuru.

Lille: Timothy Weah, Jérémy Pied, Victor Osimhen.

Monaco vs Lille Predictions

It goes without saying that the home side will be going all out for the victory here as losing to the same team in just a matter of days is pretty embarrassing. Leonardo Jardim will want to ensure his side give Lille their comeuppance in this fixture.

Lille are spotting a good league position but have in mind that Les Dogues have been really poor on the road all season.

As such, separating these two sides on paper will prove almost impossible for any football analyst but one thing is for sure, both sides will find the back of the net before the time runs out.
