Lille and AS Monaco will face each other in the 7th round of French Ligue 1, this Friday from 19:45, UK Time.
Lille had a good start, with a victory in the opening round, but then their form was really bad. To be more precise, the hosts are coming here after five games in a row without victory, with two draws and three losses. Lille are the first ones above red line at the moment, with five points and a 4-7 goal difference. They are only one point above first relegation position, with the second worst attack in the league.
AS Monaco have recorded five wins in the first six rounds, the only defeat being ticked two rounds ago, 0-4 against Nice away from home. The visitors are currently on the second position, three points behind PSG and two above Saint Etienne. AS Monaco have the second best attack in the country, scoring 17 goals in six rounds. Their defense failed to impress us, conceding eight goals, more than one per game.
