While PSG may have all but snatched Monaco’s Ligue 1 crown away from them, Leonardo Jardim’s side have enjoyed another successful campaign as the Red and Whites have guaranteed Champions League football at the Stade Louis next season.

For the hosts on Friday night, while Jardim’s side may have long given up on the chance to retain their Ligue 1 crown, the Red and Whites will be more than satisfied by knowing that Champions League football will once again be held at the Stade Louis next year. Currently sat comfortably in second spot, four points adrift of Marseille in third, Monaco not only boast the second best-attacking record in Ligue 1 the Red and Whites are also unbeaten in their last 14 domestic matchups a run that stems back to November 2017. Their success can be epitomized by the form of Radamal Falcao, the Columbian international has 17 goals this season, including three in his last two.

As for the struggling visitors, this season could draw an end to one of Ligue 1’s most recognized clubs. With the former French powerhouses currently sat in the relegation zone, Lille have now only managed to pick up seven wins in their 29 domestic matchups this year. Sadly for Christophe Galtier’s side, while a win could see them jump up to as high as 16th, Lille’s recent poor run of form has shown no signs of coming to an end just yet. In their last seven Ligue 1 outings, they have managed to pick up a single win. Even more worrying for Galtier is the fact his side have lost their last four matches against Monaco, and on three of those occasions, they conceded four goals.
