France Ligue 1

Venue: Stade Marcel Picot, Nancy.
This has all the makings of being a classic game as relegation threatened Nancy takes on champions elect Monaco.
Nancy are in 19th place but still have the chance to escape as all of the teams are bunched together but they will understand that they will be welcoming the best side in Ligue 1. Nancy have not won a match in 3 games going back almost a month, at home they have the worst record in the league.
Still home form has been improving with a recent 3-0 win over Rennes and they forced a 0-0 result against Marseille here last time out.
Monaco will need to shake off the disappointment of a 2-0 loss at home to Juventus in the semi-finals of the Champions League. In theory, the club look like they will now be knocked out of the competition. Still they are in pole position to win the league title, 3 points clear and with a game in hand over PSG.
Over the last 10 games Monaco have picked up an incredible 28 points with 9 wins and 1 draw. Away from home they have the 2nd best record in the league with just 2 losses all season and are currently on a 4-game winning run.
Nancy vs Monaco: Head to Head Stats
The last time Monaco played here they won 4-0 and in the last 4 games they have scored 11 goals. Monaco has won the last two fixtures between the two clubs though both of those matches were at Monaco’s ground. There is a clear pattern of overs and unders goals wise and if this continues then we should see plenty of goals in this game.

Perhaps this is the banana skin for Monaco because Nancy need to give everything in this game, that’s why both teams to score could be a solid bet. At the same time we can’t turn away from the dangers of Monaco, but we will look at the goal scorers market.
