Monaco vs Lyon
France Ligue 1

Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET.
Venue: Stade Louis II.
The beginning of the new French season will kick off on Friday evening when Monaco will face Lyon in what is traditionally an open game and an exciting one.
Monaco start the season where they haven’t sold their very best players but at the same time have sold so many great players that they have suffered. Last season they diced with relegation and had to sack Leonardo Jardim and then Thierry Henry and then bring back Jardim after realising there mistake.
So what now for Monaco? What is their objective?
Winning the league is out, and it seems that qualifying for Europe will be too after they clung on for survival. They haven’t brought in too much quality either with their stand out signing actually being a loan in Gelson Martins from Atletico Madrid who failed to become a regular at the La Liga side.
Lyon have change at the club and have appointed Sylvinho. This will be Sylvinho’s first managerial role so it could be seen as risky. Lyon had a decent season where they finished 3rd in the end and qualified for the Champions League qualifiers.
Lyon have been very active in the transfer market where they have sold Tanguy Ndombele to Tottenham for around 60m euros and defender Ferland Mendy for 48m euros to Real Madrid. The big loss though was Nabil Fekir who has joined Real Betis. Some of Lyon’s traditional midfield has been wiped out then and this could be a new era for them.
However, they have spent well and brought in Joachim Anderson from Sampdoria for 30m euros and Thiago Mendes from Lille for 25m euros, so the club are still being serious in going forward even if they have let some good players leave.
