This Saturday evening, at Groupama Stadium, Olympique Lyonnais will face AS Monaco in an attempt to climb back into the Top 5 of Ligue 1.
Two weeks after an infuriating derby, when ASSE stuck to the score on a penalty from Khazri in the 94th minute of play, the Rhone club will try to fill up on points after the international break in October. For this, the team of Peter Bosz will perform a big performance. Because it is Monaco which will present itself at the Parc OL this Saturday evening. A club that has had a series of good results lately, including three straight wins in the league, while Lyon remains on two draws. Despite everything, it is OL that is the favorite in this duel, according to Jessica Houara. “I vote more Lyon than Monaco for the final podium. It takes time to set up at OL, because there is a new coach. Bosz has very strong playing principles. He wants a team that plays ball, that starts from behind. Lyon has a quality workforce, even on the substitute bench. So I think that OL are better equipped than Monaco to be able to be on the podium ”, launched the consultant of Canal +.
“OL are really a great team”
An opinion shared by Mickaël Madar. “Lyon is a team that took a long time to get started. Now she’s launched. The performance against PSG, who are a solid opponent, had been very good. Lyon had known Paris at the Parc, in intensity and aggressiveness. OL are really a great team. So far, it’s not perfect either. Bosz is trying to find the right formula. But what he’s doing reminds me of Kovac’s beginnings in Monaco, where he imposed his style of play. Lyon is starting to find cruising speed, and that’s why I think it is. they will finish in front of Monaco on the podium ”, explained the columnist of Late football club, who therefore expects to see a nice match between these two big French clubs.
