Monaco wants to capitalize on its great momentum

Monaco took advantage of the fall of Marseille the previous day to move into second place in the league and have in their hands the possibility of qualifying directly to the Champions League, Monaco has a great streak of nine consecutive winning games and thanks to that great pace managed to reach 68 points, despite having the great streak the team is fighting hand in hand with Marseille to achieve direct qualification, this Saturday they have the last chance to seal the qualification since they have everything in their favor, although they are tied in most of the items it is the goal difference what would give the qualification in case both teams get the victory, Monaco has a great team and for them it will be a great prize to be in the next edition of the Champions League.

Lens for more than just three points

The Lens team is doing well after being promoted in the 2020-21 season, achieving not only the salvation but has positioned itself as a competitive team that fights at the top of the table very close to qualify for European competitions, for this season the club has managed to make an acceptable season being in seventh position with 61 points, Lens knows that a combination of results will catapult them to the fifth position which would give them the possibility to fight for a place in the Europa League or Conference League, however their rival is looking for something similar with the Champions League, it will definitely be a great duel where Lens could spoil Monaco's chance and at the same time have a hope of qualifying.

The European posts are defined

The end of the season has finally arrived and although the champion has been defined a few weeks ago, important things are still being played, such as the direct places in the Champions League, on this occasion Monaco and Marseille will be fighting for the place each in their clashes, in search of the second position Lens will be Monaco's rival and it seems that it will not be an easy opponent since it is also trying to sneak into the European competitions.
