Lyon head to Monaco for the 42nd time in their league history. A destination that has rarely been kind to OL: 8 victories, 7 draws and 26 defeats; 31 goals scored and 68 conceded.

However in the last ten visits to the principality, the champions have addressed the bar somewhat with 3 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses.

The 2005-06 version of Monaco, however, oesn’t have the quite the same billing.
