Monaco have score to settle against LensAS Monaco – RC Lens Saturday at 17:00 CET (1500 GMT) >> LIVE SCORING, STATS AND COMMENTARY The start of Monaco’s season has been overshadowed by their elimination from the UEFA Champions League before the group stage for the second year in succession. Philippe Clément’s side will have to settle for the Europa League after losing to PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League third qualifying round earlier this month. Yet the reality is that they would have gone straight into the group stage of Europe’s elite club competition had it not been for Lens. On the final night of last season Monaco were leading 2-1 away to Les Sang et Or and heading for a 10th consecutive win that would have seen them finish second in the table.

Alexander Nubel is also a doubt for the game, having missed the game against Shakhtar Donetsk due to injury. Injured: Benjamin Lecomte Doubtful: Alexander Nubel Suspended: None RC Lens Stade Bollaert-Delelis will be unable to call up the services of Steven Fortes, Mamadou Camara and Charles Boli who have all been ruled out due to injuries. Massadio Haidara is on the comeback trail and will be available while Wesley Said will be rested for another week after his return from injury. Injured: Steven Fortes, Mamadou Camara, Charles Boli Unavailable: Wesley Said AS Monaco vs RC Lens Predicted XI AS Monaco Predicted XI (4-3-3): Radoslaw Majecki; Djibril Sidibé, Ruben Aguilar, Axel Disasi, Ismail Jakobs; Aurelien Tchouameni, Gelson Martins, Aleksandr Golovin; Gelson Martins, Wissam Ben Yedder, Kevin Volland Lens predicted XI (3-4-1-2): Jean-Louis Leca, Jonathan Gradit, Kevin Danso, Facundo Medina, Jonathan Clauss, Cheick Doucoure, Seko Fofana, Deiver Machado, Gael Kakuta, Ignatius Ganago, Simon Banza AS Monaco vs RC Lens Prediction After picking up two wins and one draw from their opening three games, AS Monaco appear to have run out of steam in recent weeks.

That result was achieved despite Clément’s team being reduced to 10 men in the first quarter of an hour when Youssouf Fofana was sent off. That setback forced Clément to send on teenager Soungoutou Magassa alongside Jean Lucas in midfield for his Ligue 1 Uber Eats debut, with Monaco having already lost Eliot Matazo to an injury scare in the warm-up.

Back at home, AS Monaco suffered a shock 1-0 defeat against Lorient in their most recent Ligue 1 outing. This followed an opening-day 1-1 draw against FC Nantes two Fridays ago. The Monégasques will now hope the third time is the charm as they go in search of their first league win of the season. Meanwhile, RC Lens head into Saturday’s game following a 2-2 draw against Saint-Etienne. This followed an opening-day 1-1 draw against Stade Rennais at the Roazhon Park Stadium two Sundays ago.

Then Ignatius Ganago scored an equaliser in the sixth minute of added time to give Lens a draw, and Monaco slipped below Olympique de Marseille to finish third. In fact Lens have been something of a bogey team for the principality outfit since their return to the top flight in 2020. The northerners are unbeaten in four league meetings in the last two campaigns, and have won on their last two visits to the Stade Louis II. Monaco did at least claim a victory in the Coupe de France back in January.

Highlights: Monaco hold Rennes with 10 men “It’s a new season. Whoever we come up against, we will remain focused on what we have done for three years now. That is the most important thing, ” insisted Lens forward Florian Sotoca, who bagged a hat-trick as his side beat Stade Brestois 29 3-2 on the opening weekend of the season before they drew 0-0 at AC Ajaccio last time out. Too soon for Camara debut? Monaco won 2-1 at RC Strasbourg Alsace in their league opener before following their loss to PSV with a 1-1 draw at home to Stade Rennais FC last Saturday.

Stade Bollaert-Delelis’s men are unbeaten in their last five outings across all competitions, picking up two wins and three draws. AS Monaco vs RC Lens Head-To-Head AS Monaco have been dominant in the history of this fixture, claiming 13 wins from their previous 33 encounters.

AS Monaco vs RC Lens prediction, preview, team news and more | Ligue 1 2021-22AS Monaco play host to RC Lens at the Stade Louis II on Saturday in matchday three of Ligue 1. The hosts head into the game off the back of a 1-0 defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk in their UEFA Champions League qualification clash. Meanwhile, the visitors played out an entertaining 2-2 draw against Saint-Etienne last Sunday. AS Monaco suffered a blow in their chase for a place in the Champions League. They fell to a 1-0 first-leg defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk in the final round of the qualifier. Brazilian midfielder Pedrinho scored the only goal of the game in the 19th minute to hand the Miners a vital first-leg victory.

A former teammate of Takumi Minamino in Salzburg, Camara was described by Monaco sporting director Paul Mitchell as “a born leader and born competitor”. Highlights: Lens draw with Ajaccio in Corsica “He has a different profile to Aurélien Tchouaméni, ” said Clément. “I don’t think you can compare them because this is a new team and it is a new season. With Mo we will have to adapt and play in a different way. But Youssouf, Eliot, Mo, Jean and Soungou all have the quality to do great things in midfield for us. ” Fofana is suspended this weekend for a Monaco side also without Myron Boadu. However, there is no guarantee that Camara will make his debut for his new club. Lens unbeaten in 10 “He has not played a single minute yet in pre-season so we need to be careful, ” admitted Clément. “He won’t be able to play 90 minutes right away.

The club have spent the summer scouring the market for a successor to Aurélien Tchouaméni after selling the France star to Real Madrid, but this week they got their man in the shape of Camara. The 22-year-old, who played for Mali at the Africa Cup of Nations at the beginning of this year, has joined from Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg on a five-year deal for a reported fee of €15 million.
