Monaco vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Tuesday, 24 September 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).
Monaco’s troubles seem to have no end, and they have been following this same script of a struggle for survival for quite some time. Last campaign, they had crawled through to safety over the cut-off line, with a surplus of just two points, and by the looks of things, 2019-20 will be no different either.
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.

Monaco vs Nice Prediction
Nice has been one of the best teams in the competition this campaign and is proudly in possession of a podium spot at the moment. On the other hand, their opponents are struggling to shed their relegation-battler tag and is so far winless in the league in 2019-20.
Moreover, Patrick Vieira’s men have been unbeaten in the last four h2h encounters and found the back of the net in the prior five such battles. 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.
As such, count on the guests to put on a great performance.
