A crucial week on all fronts
Deprived of European football this season, OL are still experiencing the thrill of weeks with high-stakes matches every three days and that continues this Wednesday against Monaco in the Coupe de France. After doing well to negotiate the first three rounds against opponents from the lower divisions, OL drew a big opponent for the quarterfinals, resulting in a match between two of the league's top teams, both of whom are aiming for both the Coupe de France and Ligue 1 title.
It's a match that could serve as an ideal preparation for another massive one, as Les Gones will then host Lille four days after their Coupe de France match. It will be another crucial match, this time against the leader of Ligue 1. By winning at Groupama Stadium, OL could completely change the result of the title race, and it is undoubtedly an opportunity that Memphis and his teammates will not want to miss.
