Venue: Allianz Riviera (Nice).
By far Nice vs Monaco is the clash of match day 6 in Ligue 1.Here we not only witness to a local derby but it is also the first vs second in the standings. If that wasn’t enough how about adding in that both teams are the only sides unbeaten in Ligue 1.
Nice have dropped some points recently where from their last 3 games they have drawn twice but it doesn’t matter as they are only two points behind Monaco, a win here would be good enough to go top.
Monaco is the team of the moment in France where they have won 4 matches in a row. They are scoring goals too- 10 in their last 3 matches and are full of confidence as they seek their first Ligue 1 title.
Nice vs Monaco: Head to Head Stats
Monaco has won the last two fixtures in Nice both by a single goal in what has predictably been close matches. Indeed Nice haven’t won this fixture overall in 3 games and more worryingly in the last 7 matches between these two Monaco have been victorious on six occasions.
Nice vs Monaco: Prediction
Although Nice conceded 2 goals in one match to Marseille at this stadium the club have only let in 4 goals all season and they will want to emphasise just how good their defence is against Monaco. However they will have a huge test on their hands.
Radamel Falcao looks fit again and scored in his last game for Monaco. But watch out also for Thomas Lemar, the midfielder grabbed two goals in his last game and looks brilliant right now.
