Both these teams are former champions of the French top flight, but are going through dismal runs at the moment. In fact, neither have shown any indication that they are to be feared at any point this season
However, Monaco have managed to perform comparatively well at home – especially when the record of Lille on the road is considered.
On top of that, Lille also have a worrying h2h record against this foe over the years.
Likely, expect a win for the hosts Monaco this weekend.
