Monaco vs Nantes Predictions


Monaco will be hard to handle with Wissam Ben Yedder and Kevin Volland up front. I am backing a home win against Nantes in the Ligue 1 opener.

Monaco have won the last six encounters including 2-1 in both matches last season.

Monaco won three of five pre-season friendlies. They beat Salzburg, Cercle Brugge and Wolfsburg with a draw against Antwerp and defeat against Real Sociedad.

Aurélien Tchouaméni headed home a corner and Kevin Volland scored from close range in the Czech Republic.

Monaco Injuries & Team News


Centre back Guillermo Maripán is injured and midfielder Krépin Diatta is doubtful.

Alexander Nübel is on loan from Bayern Munich with Monaco signing left back Ismail Jakobs and striker Myron Boadu. Boadu is unlikely to be in the squad but Jakobs came off the bench against Sparta Prague.

Kovac could rotate following the trip to Prague with Pietro Pellegri hoping to start ahead of Kevin Volland or Ben Yedder up front. 

Nantes Form


Nantes escaped relegation last season by winning four of their last five games. They beat Toulouse on away goals in the relegation play-off after a 2-1 away win and 1-0 defeat at home.

Antoine Kombouaré’s side have played six pre-season friendlies. They beat Guingamp and Brest but suffered defeats against Caen, Niort, Lorient and Clermont.

Nantes have signed goalkeeper Alban Lafont with midfielder Wylan Cyprien arriving on loan from Parma.

Defensive midfielder Pedro Chirivella is suspeneded.

With forward Kalifa Coulibaly doubtful and Randal Kolo Muani on a break following his participation in the Olympics, Renaud Emond could lead the line.

Verdict

Monaco are well placed to fight for the Ligue 1 title this season. With confidence and fitness gained from the win in the Champions League, I am backing Niko Kovac’s side to win to nil.
