While the Ligue One title can’t be decided this weekend, Monaco can take another huge step towards lifting it with a win over mid table Lille on Sunday. Monaco are three points ahead of PSG, their only challengers, but with a game in hand, they are firmly in the driving seat at this stage.
As the season has drawn to a close, Monaco have really lifted their game. They have won their last nine matches and are unbeaten in their last 17 as they search for another French title. Their tussle with PSG has been a good one, but Monaco look like the far superior team and it would be a shock if they didn’t go on to win the league from here.
Lille have lost three of their last five as their season comes to an end but away from home they have still been performing well. They have won three of their last four away from home and will pose a threat to Monaco if the hosts don’t take this game seriously.
Everything here points towards a home win for Monaco and it would be a big surprise if they didn’t take this. They have been performing very well recently and look set to end the season as champions with just three games left to play. A win here would take them a step closer to lifting the title and with that all important game in hand still to come, they are firmly in the driving seat.
Lille have the ability to cause problems and as they have won three of their last four away games they have to been taken seriously by Monaco. However, the home side look like champions and now all they need to do is finish the job, something they can start by winning on Sunday.
