Nice vs Monaco Prediction & Match Preview

Nice vs Monaco
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 8th November 2020
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riviera (Nice).

The infamous derby in the south of France will take place on early Sunday evening when Nice take on Monaco and there will be no love lost between these two teams.

Nice are in 4th place with 17 points and apart from a small blip have started the season very well. The club have recorded 5 wins from their first 9 games and could go into the top 3 with a win.

Form is good with 11 points earned from their last 15 and there have been no defeats since mid September.

Monaco have been more hit and miss, looking good one week only to lose the next. But having said that if they were to win this game they would go level on points with Nice.

Last weekend Monaco received a good confidence boost and beat Bordeaux 4-0. However the clubs problems clearly are away from home where from 4 games played they have lost 3 and that includes losing their last three in a row.

Nice vs Monaco: Head to Head

Nice vs Monaco: Prediction

We could well see the most entertaining game of the Ligue 1 weekend when Nice and Monaco do battle. This is because both sides have shown us great football this season and because we are early into it some tactics may go out the window and replaced by end to end football that could well represent a cup fixture.

This should be a close game though we will back Nice to get the win as the home side. They are shaping up to be a good side under Patrick Vieira and Monaco have had some bad experiences here in recent years and are not travelling well- will that really change for a derby game?

Nice vs Monaco Bet Tips:

  • Nice to beat Monaco at 3.25 (9/4)
  • Both teams to score at 1.50 (1/2)
  • A red card to be shown at 5.00 (4/1).
