Our Prediction:

Monaco will win

Monaco – Nice Match Prediction | 25-09-2019 15:00

Nice have more to be happy about early in the campaign and take on a short trip to Stade Louis II with 12 points to their name, bagging four wins in six outings two of which came on trips to Nmes (1-2) and Rennes (1-2). Theyve struggled to keep it together but still managed to outgun the rivals and will surely hope for a similar scenario now.

This focus on attack has helped them create chances but with such a paper thin defence they rarely hold on to those leads. Monaco switched to a 3-5-2 formation in the least match to try and alleviate their defensive issues and it worked, as they kept a clean sheet but it hindered their attack as they hardly created anything of quality. Monaco created just 17% of the games chances but theyll be hoping to improve that here.

A win over Amiens saw Monaco avoid relegation to the Ligue 1. The nightmare is finally over and coach Leonardo Jardim can breathe easier ahead of the trip to Nice. Les Rouges et Blancs are not regarded as good travelers and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Nices party at Allianz Riviera. The Portuguese tactician is likely to mix the squad against les Aiglons, which is probably the main reason why away win should not be considered.

Nice havent been the biggest scorers this season with nine goals in their last eleven games but with them holding the third best defensive record in the league, it is clear where Vieiras focus lies with this side. Nice did lose at the weekend though with Saint-tienne beating them 3-0, which was an extremely out-of-sorts performance from les Aiglons.

Nice vs Monaco Prediction & Match Preview

Cesc Fabregas is likely to return to the starting XI against les Aiglons and, no doubt, all eyes will be on the experienced Spanish midfielder when the two clubs face each other at Stade Louis II. Nice did well to beat Dijon 2-1 at home in their last league match, but seeing that the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we predict that Patrick Vieiras troops are going to return home empty-handed.

In the last 5 matches, they have 3 wins and 2 losses. That would be even better if in the last match they didnt allow Montpellier to come back and to win 2-1. Interestingly, theyve finished all 5 matches with the single-goal margin and with the same result 2-1 or 1-2. On the other hand, Nice plays well and according to the expectation, they are in the 6th place right now.

Though based in Monaco, Les Rouges et Blances as they are commonly referred to play their games in the French football league system. The Principality club boasts a turbulent history, which saw Monaco reach the highest heights of both domestic and international scene, but also get relegated to the amateur leagues at the very beginnings and to Ligue 2 in 2010-11 season. Members of the top tier Ligue 1, Monaco play their home matches at the Stade Louis II in Fontvieille in front of 18,500 people.

Monaco vs Nice Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

Monacos real problem has been with an inconsistency in quality with how they defend and attack. Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim has seen nothing but criticism since returning to the principality and its easy to see why as his side are still to win in the league this campaign.

The former have been through the mill with two managerial changes and a long string of injuries seeing them almost relegated but a win last week over Amiens (2-0) has pretty much guaranteed their safety. This Derby de la Cte dAzur will round off the season for both sides but it has been a campaign of differing fortunes for Monaco and Nice.

Today's Tips

Despite the poor form, they have scored seven goals in their last five games but come up against a very sturdy defence in Nice. Their win over Amiens was their first victory in eight games and they were rather lucky to even get the win as their opponents had 59% of the possession and three shots on target, so the match could have gone either way.

Les Rouges et Blancs have been struggling to find their form at the start of the 2019/2020 Ligue 1 campaign, but given the number of top-class footballers in Leonardo Jardims team, it is no wonder the hosts are seen as favourites to win the midweek fixture. Monaco will be aiming to register their first win of the season when they host Nice at their Stade Louis II on Tuesday evening.

Moreover, Patrick Vieiras men have been unbeaten in the last four h2h encounters and found the back of the net in the prior five such battles. Finally, the hosts of the day have conceded the most number of goals at the moment in the competition, whereas their counterparts have scored the most barring some of the best offenses in Ligue 1, which includes the likes of PSG.
