Our prediction for this Coupe de la Ligue match:
Monaco and Lille face each other at Stade Louis II in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Tuesday’s program. Les Rouges et Blancs have been climbing the Ligue 1 standings, but they have yet to find their best form. Leonardo Jardim’s troops did well to beat Olympique Marseille in their Coupe de la Ligue opener, but the game against Lille will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be summer signing Wissam Ben Yedder, who has been scoring goals for fun in the Ligue 1 this season. Les Dogues, on the other hand, continue with terrific displays in the French top flight, with the team beating Montpellier 2-1 in their last league fixture. Seeing that Lille are enjoying a very successful domestic campaign, we are tempted to put our money on draw.
