Third in the standings before the reception before the reception of Les Gones, the ASM must win to stay in the title race.

Woe to the vanquished
In case of defeat against the team coached by Rudi Garcia and Monaco would be five points behind LOSC three games from the end of the championship. An almost insurmountable gap while Lille’s Christophe Galtier only have Ligue 1 to play this season.
Worse, if OL win this Sunday in the Principality, the gang led by Memphis Depay and Houssem Aouar would come only one length behind the Monegasques and the podium.
The calendar, in theory, more affordable for the Lyonnais could then allow them to snatch the last ticket for the next Champions League. After their trip to Monaco, OL will host Lorient, will travel to Nîmes before concluding their season at home against Nice.
In addition to a Coupe de France semi-final against GFA Rumilly-Valilières, ASM will have to negotiate matches against Reims and especially against Lens and Rennes during the final sprint.
