Lyon VS AS Monaco
Competition: French Ligue 1 
Match date: 12 September 2014
Kick Off Time:  - 18:30  GMT

Lyon are currently on the 17th position in the Ligue 1. They have only three points from the first four rounds and the fans are very disappointed after the bad start. However, the international break brought back several key players and the fans are now waiting for a strong performance to compensate for the absence of European football this season. The team will be meeting Monaco at home and the players will try to get their second win this season. After the victory in the first round, Lyon have lost the next three matches in a row. Here are the defeats:

31.08.2014. Metz - Lyon 2:1
24.08.2014. Lyon - Lens 0:1
16.08.2014. Toulouse - Lyon 2:1

The coach Hubert Fournier has four sidelined players ahead of this match - Henri Bedimo, Gueida Fofana, Clément Grenier and Yassine Benzia are injured. Also Bakary Kone, Clinton N'Jie, Mehdi Zeffane and Milan Bisevac are doubtful.

Probable line-up: Lopes, Dabo, Umtiti, Rose, Jallet, Mvuemba, Gonalons, Ferri, Malbranque, Yattara, Lacazette

Monaco also have a bad start to the new season. They have won only four points from the first four rounds and they find themselves on the 15th position in the league. The newest departure in the team is the striker Radamel Falcao who joined Manchester United. His departure is a big handicap. Monaco opened the season with two losses, but they have won four points on the last two matches. Here are the results:

30.08.2014. Monaco - Lille 1:1
24.08.2014. Nantes - Monaco 0:1

The coach Leonardo Jardim has only one player that is doubtful ahead of this match - defender Layvin Kurzawa.


Probable line-up: Subasic, Kurzawa, Carvalho, Raggi, Fabinho, Moutinho, Toulalan, Kondogbia, Ocampos, Berbatov, Ferreira-Carrasco

Monaco won both matches in the previous season. Here are the results:

16.03.2014. Lyon - Monaco 2:3
27.10.2013. Monaco - Lyon 2:1
