Monaco can edge out Lyon
Reigning Ligue 1 champions Monaco will be looking to draw level on points with PSG at the top of the table by beating Lyon on Friday.
Monaco's impressive title-winning triumph last term was built on the goals of Kylian Mbappe, while the impressive performances of Tiemoue Bakayoko and Bernardo Silva in midfield and Benjamin Mendy in defence were also key.

However, all four left in the summer to seriously weaken their squad and boss Leonardo Jardim has had to rebuild. Stevan Jovetic and Keita Balde have been among the notable arrivals but it appears the fear factor, largely created by Mbappe up front, has diminished. Radamel Falcao remains, though, and he has again been outstanding, notching a brilliant 12 league goals already.

They still sit second in the table, three points behind PSG, but an early disappointing 4-0 defeat at Nice and a 1-1 home draw with Montpellier before the international break, coupled with a shock 3-0 home reverse against Porto in the Champions League, have raised questions.

They will still hope to get the better of Lyon on Friday, though, as the home side are off the pace in eighth - six points adrift of Monaco after eight games played. A home win is on offer at n/a, while Monaco can be backed to come out on top at n/a.

Lyon have been draw specialists so far this season, drawing four of their last five, with the other result being a defeat against leaders PSG. They too have had to react to losing a star forward following Alexandre Lacazette's big-money move to Arsenal, but youngster Nabil Fekir has impressed with five strikes so far.

The visitors will not be able to call upon injured defenders Jorge and Kevin N'Doram, while Lyon have injuries of their own and are without defender Fernando Marcal, midfielder Pape Diop and attacker Amine Gouiri.

It is tempting to suggest another draw for Lyon, available at n/a, but Monaco should have the edge and they can make the superior quality tell - especially with Falcao in such stunning form.

Recommended bet: Away win n/a.
