France: Coupe de France - quarterfinals
Match start: 21:00 (GMT+1)
Monaco and Lille are fighting for semifinal of the national cup and it is more important for Lille. The problem is that this football club doesn’t demonstrate bright results this season at national championship but it has an opportunity to get into the Europe League. Monaco is showing good results and the football club can possibly be successful at all tournaments in which the club is participating.
The team of Leonardo Jardim really impresses the fans this season and the Portuguese coach is very successful in rising young talented football players. So, this season Monaco can be proud of such young stars as Mbappé, Lemar, Fabinho and Benjamin Mendy. The grands of European football are hunting for these football players but Monaco is also able to become a real grand. The club is a leader at the championship and is good at Champions League. More than that, the football club has all chances to be very successful at Coupe de France. Prior to the match with Lille, club is facing the squad problems as the injured football players Falcao, Sidibé, Carrillo, Raggi won’t be able to take part in it.
Not that long ago Lille was among the leaders of French football and now it has to fight even for survival. In February 2017 the head of the football club became Franck Passi who has to return its glory. It is hard to do this as the opponents of Lille are numerous and the financial status is not ideal. The club is actively selling its leaders and it buys only talented but inexperienced youth. It is quite possible that by the end of the season such football players as Éderzito and Benzia will leave the football club. This moment Lille takes only 13th line at the championship and can claim for Euro Cups only in case of its success at national Cup.
For Lille this match is very important but the rival is so strong. Monaco has its perfect form and practically doesn’t make any mistakes. Despite some squad problems due to the injuries the club has great game potential and football resource.
