Monaco vs Nice Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
Monaco and Nice are expected to serve up a low scoring contest when they face each other in a French Ligue 1 fixture at the Stade Louis II. We are predicting an outcome of under 2.5 goals at odds of 1.80 with both teams set to play out a draw.
AS Monaco FC Form & Team News
Monaco are still deep in the relegation zone despite showing signs of improvement in their recent matches. They are unbeaten in four of their last five outings across all competitions, claiming three wins in that run.
Thierry Henry's men are coming off a 1-1 draw away at Olympique Marseille in their previous Ligue 1 fixture last Sunday. They fell behind early in the first half but struck the equaliser seven minutes before the break through Youri Tielemans.
Radamel Falcao could be set to return after missing the draw at Marseille due to the death of his father. Cesc Fabregas is also in line for a second appearance after making his debut on Sunday while Tielemans is also expected to start.
OGC Nice Form & Team News
Nice have also shown some good form lately having suffered just one defeat in their last nine Ligue 1 matches. They have claimed five wins in that run and are sitting eighth on the table, four points off the continental places.
Patrick Vieira's team were victorious in their last Ligue 1 outing as they saw off Bordeaux 1-0 at home. They got the goal early in the first half through Allan Saint-Maximin and were able to hold on for the win despite some pressure from the visitors.
Nice are still without Mario Balotelli who has been given an extended break following a troubled campaign this season. Ihsan Sacko is expected to continue in attack with the likes of Saint-Maximin and Eddie Sylvestre providing support.
Monaco vs Nice Head-to-Head
There have been 38 previous matches involving Monaco and Nice with the hosts holding the edge by 17 wins to 13. The visitors were unbeaten against Monaco last season, winning 4-0 in Nice before settling for a 2-2 draw away at the Stade Louis II.
Monaco vs Nice Match Up
Goals have been a problem for Monaco this season with Falcao not scoring enough and the likes of Stevan Jovetic and Pietro Pellegri constantly battling injury. Aleksandr Golovin was deployed in attack alongside Rony Lopes against Marseille and both men are likely to struggle on Wednesday.
Nice have also struggled in attack this season with Saint-Maximin their top scorer with just four goals. The forward often plays alongside Sylvestre and Sacko, none of whom have been prolific this term.
Monaco vs Nice Key Statistics
- Monaco have seen under 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 6 matches (Ligue 1).
- Monaco are unbeaten in 4 of their last 5 matches (All Competitions).
- Nice have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 10 matches (Ligue 1).
- Nice are unbeaten in 8 of their last 10 matches (Ligue 1).
Given Monaco and Nice's problems in attack this season, under 2.5 goals looks to be the most likely outcome on Wednesday. Both teams also appear evenly matched at the moment and should settle for a draw.
