The Olympique Sporting Club Lille is undoubtedly the surprise team so far this season in Ligue 1. The Mastiffs are the first runner-up to Paris St. Germain after 28 rounds. Lille's lead in third place and Olympique Lyon is a comforting seven points. It would be the OSC in the preseason almost relegated. In this season, Northern France seems to be no longer taking part in the Champions League. The team of Coach Galtier wants to collect further points for this goal on Friday in the Stade Pierre-Mauroy against AS Monaco.
Moreover, there have been 44 clashes between Lille and Monaco. With 18 wins, 15 draws and 11 defeats, the Monegassen have the edge in direct comparison. For six duels Lille is waiting for a win against AS Monaco. The first leg of the season ended with a 0:0 in the Principality. In northern France, there have been six home wins so far, eight draws and seven visits.
Certainly, also Monaco shows a strong rising form. But so far, the Monegas are still waiting for the first away win in the new term of coach Jardim. Lille wants to move in any case in the Champions League. While Lyon in third only waiting for a pass of the Doggen. Monaco coach Jardim knows that despite being six points clear of 18th place, it is far from easy to say goodbye to the relegation battle.

Certainly, the guests have hope for their good shape under the new coach and the advantage in direct comparison that they can take something from Northern France. But Lille is likely to be a number too big for the men from the Principality in the end. Thus, we play at game Lille against Monaco our tip on "Lille to win". We choose a bet of three units.
As an alternative, a forecast on "both team to score: YES". Monaco has scored at least one goal in each game under the "new" coach Jardim. The Monegasque also could play only twice in the last 13 Ligue 1 guest appearances to nil. Also, Lille remained in the last 17 league games at home only twice without conceding a goal.
