Our Prediction:

Monaco will win

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

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 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.

Monaco vs Nice Stats

You should bear in mind that Monaco are on a four-game winless run on the road in the French top flight. Les Aiglons, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to Saint-Etienne and seeing that they are eager to overtake Nimes in seventh place in the standings, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.

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.

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.

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.
