Monaco vs Nancy
Coupe de la Ligue Semi-Final
Date: Wednesday, 25th January 2017
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).
Monaco seem to have found the right shape once again. The team led by Leonardo Jardim was just ruthless scoring four goals in each of the last two Ligue 1 wins over Olympique de Marseille and Lorient to claim the very top of the standings. It was the fifth win in a row for Les Rouges et Blancs in all competitions. The latest of the wins in the mentioned streak was just the one from Coupe de la Ligue quarterfinal when Monaco secured the semifinal only after penalties.
Nancy are enjoying a decent shape themselves, especially at the back. The Uruguayan manager Pablo Correa has been doing a tremendous job with a mediocre team. Nancy took three wins in last three games in all competitions and they did not concede a single goal in last four matches The positive run will be on a heavy challenge this Wednesday, but it will surely be interesting to see how Monaco will cop eon with such a good defensive line and vice versa.
Monaco vs Nancy: Head-to-Head Stats
Nancy will want to forget the first head to head clash between the two sides in this season since they suffered a real disaster at Louis II stadium. Monaco claimed a demolishing 6–0 win. Radamel Falcao and Guido Carillo scored a brace each, while Mbappe Lottin and Fabinho found their names on the scoresheet as well. It was generally the first match between the two sides since March 2011 when Nancy last time played among the elite in France.
Monaco vs Nancy: Prediction
The 4/11 odds offered on Monaco to claim the victory will not make anyone rich. We do expect Nancy to show a much better performance from the one they produced in November and e expect a very tough match. The visitors will park the bus which gives a decent value to Under bets.
