On Sunday evening in the French Cup, Ligue 1 sides Lens and Monaco meet at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis. There is hardly anything to split these two in the league, and this cup tie could go either way.

Lens Preview – Can the hosts make it through to last eight?

Lens are having a decent enough season in Ligue 1, winning nine, drawing six and losing seven of their opening 22 league matches. After three straight league and cup wins, they were beaten at home by Marseille last time out.

Le Racing edged past Lille in the previous round to setup this last-16 clash. After a 2-2 draw in normal time, Lens won 4-3 on penalties. In the round before that, they secured a narrow 1-0 victory at Stade Poitevin.

Our betting prediction:
Monaco to win & both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1608 GMT, Saturday 29 January)

Lens will be hoping to make home advantage count in this cup tie, and the bookies are offering 9/5 for a home win.

Monaco Preview – Will the in-form Monegasques progress?

Monaco head to Lens in fine fettle, though they were beaten at Montpellier last time out. Last Sunday’s league reverse ended a five-game unbeaten run in all competitions (four wins, one draw).

Monaco have been tough to beat of late, losing on just two occasions since October. They have reached the Round of 16 of this season’s French Cup by seeing off Red Star Paris and Quevilly away from home.
