Nice vs Monaco French Ligue 1 Prediction by LeagueLane

Nice vs Monaco
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 7th March 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riveria.

This is one of the most important derby games in French football as the two south of France clubs will do battle at the weekend.

Nice are in 9th place but if they win they would go above their rivals, so they do not need much motivation to go for this game. European spots are still up for grabs also. Whilst Nice come into this game undefeated in their last 3 they have drawn their last two matches, last weekend that was against Bordeaux in a game that ended 1-1.

Monaco have two more points than Nice and are undefeated in their last month of games but they have drawn just like Nice their last 2 games. Last weekend it was against Reims.

Draws have followed away from home for the club also, and they have only won 3 games on the road this season. But also they have lost just once in their last five games away from home and now remain unbeaten for their last two games. Their last away game ended in a draw against Dijon.

Nice vs Monaco: Head to Head

  • Last season Nice won this game 2-0.
  • Monaco have won once in the last 4 games played here.
  • There is a 70% chance to see over 2.5 goals.

Nice vs Monaco: Prediction

No team has been able to show brilliant consistency this season and this is why this game has a draw written all over it.

However, picking draws can always be risky. What we do know is that both can have leaky defenses and we think we will see goals in this game and one of our choices will be to see both teams to score.

We will also back the card markets, as a fiery derby game we do expect to see quite a few shown and this could be good value to back this market in a game that should be a close call.

Nice vs Monaco: Bet Tips:

  • Both teams to score at 1.57 (4/7)
  • 5+ cards to be shown at 1.91 (10/11).
