Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
There will be fireworks when Lille and Monaco face each other at Stade Pierre-Mauroy on day 13 of the new Ligue 1 campaign. Les Dogues dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with St Etienne with the team failing to turn their dominance in ball possession into victory. Lille aim to return to winning ways as soon as possible, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Monaco.
Les Rouges et Noirs, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-0 win over Nimes, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Monaco are a real force to be reckoned with at home, but given their anything but impressive away record, we are tempted to put our money on les Dogues. In their last meeting in the Ligue 1 Monaco crushed Lille 5-1, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
