They are under some pressure to perform and get this win and playing Nimes will not be easy even if they are at home. Monaco have not won a game since the opening day of the season when they went to Nantes and won impressively 3-1. Since then they have lost 2 games and are in 15th place. Is this a result of all the quality players that they have let go during the past few seasons? It does seem so. Once a team who could challenge PSG for the title they are already 10 points behind.

Nimes have been spectacular since their promotion from Ligue 2 and are in 8th place with 7 points. Whilst they have gone their last 3 games without a win it is clear that their set up is to attack, and no one can accuse them of being boring. That was witnessed last weekend when they drew 3-3 against Bordeaux. They have scored 7 goals in their last two games and 12 overall- only PSG and Marseille have more.

Monaco have won the last three meetings and Nimes have scored just 1 goal in those games.

Monaco vs Nimes: Prediction

Monaco are odds on favourites to win this game which doesn’t look like good value to us. On the downside the team lack good form and had to play a game on Tuesday whilst Nimes could rest. On the plus side Monaco still have some good players and on their day could easily beat Nimes.

But we need to respect what Nimes has achieved so far- they are a team who when playing better teams score goals and really go for the game. So we will look into different markets as this Monaco defence is not very good.
