On 6 May, the opening match of the 36th round of the French championship will take place at the Stade Pierre Moroi. Lille face Monaco. The visitors are in phenomenal form. Can they extend their winning streak? For full information and all odds for the match, look at 1xbet app download.
Lille are surprisingly unstable. A week ago, they beat a resilient Strasbourg 1-0 at home, and then last weekend they drew 3-0 away to relegated struggling Troyes.
Last year’s champions are currently only 10th in the standings (51 points). There is no longer any chance of finishing in the top six. Three rounds before the end of the championship, the gap from the 5th position is 9 points.
Joselin Gurvennec’s side leave much to be desired. In the last 6 matches, only 1 win has been recorded, with 3 defeats and 2 worldwide.
Let’s take a look at how the team has performed on the home pitch this season. The results are pretty average: 7 wins, 7 draws and 3 defeats. 21 goals scored and 18 conceded.
Monaco have not been as good as they have been in the last few months. Last round, the team was stronger than Angers (2-0) on home soil. This win was the 7th in a row.
As of today, Philippe Clement’s charges are fighting for a place in the Champions League zone. They have 62 points on their books. The same number is held by Rennes. These teams share the third position. True, the Bretons’ supplementary figures are a little worse. By the way, there is still a chance to catch up with Marseille, which is in second place. The Provençal side have 65 points on their books.
Currently, the Monegasques are among the top four French clubs in terms of points scored away – 25 in 17 games (7 wins, 4 draws and 6 defeats; 21 goals scored and 21 conceded).

Lille vs AC Monaco. Outcome with cf. 1,51
I think we’ll see a pretty bright opening of the tour. Still, the teams are really strong. But if we talk about the current conditions, they are better in Monaco (the series of seven wins in a row confirms it).
Today, the Monegasques are among the best clubs in France in terms of away results. But, nevertheless, Lille should not be written off either. Yes, the team performs mediocrely, but there are still strong performers capable of making a difference.
My prediction is to win by 2 over 0.
