Team News

Monaco
Lens
  • Ruben Aguilar has been linked with a move away and may not be included here, even if he does stay.
  • Folarin Balogun should be in the squad but won't start ahead of league-leading scorer Ben Yedder.
  • Despite a galling defeat to PSG, Franck Haise won't shuffle his deck too much.
  • Summer signing Elye Wahi is also an option in attack -- the former Montpellier striker could make his debut here.

Prediction

  • This shapes up to be the key match of the weekend -- Monaco can lay down a real marker on the back of their strong start, while Lens need to right the ship before their Champions League campaign starts in earnest.
  • Lens have been dangerous, but it's frankly hard to see past a Monaco side who have scored more goals than any other team in the Big 5 leagues.
