Lyon – Monaco betting tip, prediction & odds 28.04.2024

Ligue 1, Sunday, 28.04.2024

Will Lyon’s “European Cup fate” be decided this Sunday? Olympique’s exciting comeback suffered a setback last weekend, but a win over the Monegasques could revive their hopes!

According to my Lyon Monaco prediction, the home side should at least pick up a point. The players from the principality have to cope with various suspensions, which could put them under considerable pressure on the pitch on Sunday

Last weekend didn’t go according to plan for Lyon! They were dispatched by Paris Saint-Germain with 1:4 goals.

However, they could still qualify for a European competition if they win the Coupe de France final against PSG in May.

However, the Parisians are playing such good soccer at the moment that fans of the “Gones” should not get their hopes up of springing a surprise.

Instead, they should focus on aiming for a return to the international stage via their Ligue 1 position.

Lyon are definitely one of the teams who have really turned up the heat in Ligue 1 since the turn of the year.

The recent cup defeat against PSG does not do justice to their actual performance. They would certainly give most other league rivals a headache in their current form.

Before the game against Paris-St. Germain, OL had picked up 13 of the possible 15 points from their previous five matches – including a remarkable 4:3 win over Brest, the surprise team of the 2023/24 season

Monaco, meanwhile, are also riding a wave of success and even the comparison with PSG at the beginning of March did not break their run of decent results.

Lyon will be up against a team that has not tasted the bitter taste of defeat since the 23rd Ligue 1 matchday and has recently celebrated four wins in a row.

AS is therefore the underdog in the eyes of some of my betting friends, even if not all German bookmakers see it that way

Some good providers such as Merkur Bets favor the home side, while others favor the visitors. This shows how divided the bookmakers are when it comes to the question of who is the favorite.

In any case, the average odds of victory are almost identical at 2.60 and are “fair” in my eyes.

Yes, I secretly think Monaco are the stronger team, but the absence of Singo and Ben Seghir due to suspension really hurts

In addition, the statistics cannot be completely ignored. Lyon have won each of their last five Ligue 1 home games against this opponent and have scored at least a treble in all but one of them, which is impressive.

Another argument in Lyon’s favor is, of course, their starting position in Ligue 1, as Monaco should not leave the Champions League zone until matchday 34, even if the principality would certainly be delighted to finish as runners-up

Lyon, on the other hand, need the money from playing in a European club competition to cover their high personnel costs and to keep hold of one or two up-and-coming superstars like Jake O’Brien.

The defeat against PSG may have cost them some momentum, but Lens are only five points away and with four matchdays remaining, they will clearly be playing to win against Monegasque

While Monaco – as already mentioned – will be missing several players through suspension, Lyon have an important man back for the big moments!

Nicolás Tagliafico scored in the important game against Brest earlier this month before being sent off (4-3 win) and could pose an attacking threat after the break, having scored each of his four Ligue 1 goals in the second half.

However, it is usually the first half of games where his side set the course for a subsequent victory. This is because Olympique Lyon have won all five of their Ligue 1 home games this season when they have scored 1-0 in the course of the match

Conclusion: We can expect an incredibly close game on Sunday, which is why I’m taking precautions with my Lyon Monaco betting tip “Double chance 1X” to guard against the threat of a draw.

Nevertheless, I see Lyon in a slightly better starting position due to the suspensions of Ben Seghir and Singo.

They’ve made up a lot of ground on their rivals in recent weeks and even a defeat against Paris shouldn’t throw them off course in the long term in my eyes

My tip: Double chance 1X
