Match Preview

Last season was one to forget for Monaco as they narrowly avoided the relegation play-off. However, their fans usually see them start the season strongly, with Monaco unbeaten in their last four opening day matches (W3, D1), with both teams scoring in each of the last five.
Home fans may have to wait until after the break to see the first goal though. Ten of the 11 goals Monaco have netted across their last five opening day fixtures came after half-time, as did 65.79% of their league goals last term. Although notably the hosts did average just 1.0 goals per Ligue 1 (L1) home match in 2018/19.
A finishing six-game unbeaten run helped Lyon secure third place last campaign, and they have now scored in 15 consecutive competitive matches. The last team they failed to score against, however, was Monaco in a 2-0 loss in the previous H2H held here, and remains the only meeting in the last eight that featured under 2.5 goals.
Lyon are masters at opening day fixtures though, last losing one back in 2003/04 (W12, D3 since). Nine of their 12 opening victories since have come ‘to nil’, and they’ve conceded just 0.42 goals on average per match across that period.
Players to watch: Now signed permanently, Gelson Martins scored four goals for Monaco last term – all were match openers netted before the 20th minute.
Lyon’s top L1 scorer last season, Moussa Dembélé, netted ten of his 15 goals after half-time.
Stat attack: Six of Monaco’s nine L1 home defeats last season arrived via a single-goal margin.
Lyon were L1’s second-best away team in 2018/19, averaging 1.68 points, and 1.68 goals scored, per road trip.
Both teams have scored in four of the last five H2Hs held here. The last three produced over 1.5 first-half goals.
