Monaco (@2.0) vs Nice (@4.0)

Our Prediction:

Monaco will win

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

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.

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.

He now desperately need a cure as they host Nice for their French Riviera clash on Tuesday evening, hoping to at least escape the bottom part of the table. Monaco have seen a very troubled start of the campaign and Leonardo Jardim has surely felt the pressure mounting as his side sits in the relegation zone, with just three points bagged in first six outings.

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.

Les Monegasques have struggled defensively and weve seen them concede eight goals as they shared the spoils with Nimes (2-2), Strasbourg (2-2), and saw a thriller 3-4 loss to Marseille. They have held Reims to a goalless draw most recently and with potential returns for both Slimani and Ben Yedder, theyll surely hope for a more dangerous attacking line as well.

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. 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.

Nice have won one and drawn two of their last three matches with Monaco and with the hosts winning just one of their last eight home matches, were backing the visitors to get the win here.

Predicted Lineups

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.
