Monaco were engaged in a hard fought 2-2 draw at home against Guingamp. They were 2-0 down at half-time, but done brilliantly to grab a point. However they will consider this as 2 points dropped than a point gained. However they bounced back brilliantly with a 2-1 away win at Villarreal in the Champions League play-off on Wednesday night.

Nantes vs Monaco: Prediction

Confidence will be brimming at Nantes camp as they have started the Ligue 1 on a good note with a win. Even going away to get a first win is vital for them, but their weekend match against Monaco is another tough task. This will be also an opportunity to cheer their travelling fans by getting the first win again Monaco in five competitive meetings.

Monaco’s unbeaten streak and good run will give them plenty of confidence in this away fixture. They are coming on the back of a morale boosting away win against Villarreal in the mid-week Champions League fixture. They must clinch this on a slim margin.
