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

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.

Nice have lost that defensive solidity that won them so many points last season but their switch to a more attacking style of play has brought them similar results. Each of Nices six games this season have finished 2-1, with les Aiglons ending up on the winning side four times.

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. 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.

Monaco vs Nice Match Prediction

They have won six and lost just one of their last nine matches at the Allianz Riviera, with six clean sheets along the way highlighting how dominant they have been in defence this season. Patrick Vieira has enjoyed a rather fruitful first season in France, with his team currently sitting eighth with the possibility of seventh place if the cards fall their way on the last day of the season. Much of his teams success has been down to the incredible home record that his side have amassed. They havent conceded twice at home in the league since September and that should continue against Monaco.

Were also going to back Nice to win 1-0 as a victory could clinch them 7th spot so they will be desperate for three points. Monaco have also scored under 1.5 goals in four of their last five away games so were backing this market to win here. Monaco have been attacking well in recent weeks but with Nices incredible home record were going to back the away side to score under 1.5 goals as les Aiglons havent conceded that at the Allianz Riviera since October.

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.

A win over Amiens saw Monaco avoid relegation to the Ligue 1. 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. 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.

Highlighted Team (Monaco):

Having spent 15 years of loyal service at the club and having gone through all the youth ranks with the Portugal national team, Adrien Silva made a man for himself during the Euro 2016 when he played every single one of Portugals matches from the round of 16 onwards. His imposing performances allowed him to attract plenty of interest from Europes top clubs during the summer transfer window.

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.

Monaco will be aiming to register their first win of the season when they host Nice at their Stade Louis II on Tuesday evening. 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.

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.

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.

_________________________________________________Monaco vs Nice prediction In any of the last 5 H2H matches we saw at least 2 goals, and 15 in total. I believe that they will find a way to stop the visiting team from scoring more than once and to win for the first time in this season. The hosts are listed as the favourites for this match and I agree with that. Nice won twice, Monaco won once and two clashes finished without a winner.

They have scored the most number of goals in the league, except for the likes of Lyon, Angers, and of course PSG, and against the weakest defense in the tournament, the away handicap of the day should not matter much. Compounding their problems is the arrival of Nice, who have lost just twice in the competition so far this run, and won the rest of the fixtures in style.
