Ligue 1 / AS Monaco vs OGC Nice – Nice is in much better mood ahead of match with its neighbour as it occupies the third place in the table after winning four matches and tying the result two times. Monaco totally underperformed and has won only three points, nine fewer than its hosts and they are still waiting to win for the first time since they drew and lost by three times. Match between the two teams played last year in Monaco ended as 1-1 draw.
Game AS Monaco vs OGC Nice begins 24.09.2019 at 21:00 CET
Monaco struggles a lot at the beginning of new season and they still haven't won. The French Ligue 1 has played six rounds and all they did was three draws. They lost the same number of times and each time they lost they received a large number of goals; exactly 10 in those three defeats, while result of first two drew was 2-2. Only in the previous round Monaco managed to not receive a goal but they didn't score either and away match with Reims ended as 0-0 draw. After defeat by Marseille, when they had a lead of 2-0, manager Jardim made several changes in the team and now perhaps the same one will go on the pitch.
Probable lineups AS Monaco: Lecomte – Maripan, Badiashile, Glik – Aguilar, Bakayoko, Golovin, Ad. Silva, Dias – Martins, Balde
Nice plays surprisingly well at the beginning of new season although they too lost two matches. They triumphed four times and it is very interesting that all six matches ended by the same result 2-1, regardless whether they won or lost. They have already lost two local derbies, to Marseille at home and Montpellier away. The most valuable victory was the away one over the Cup winner Rennes, while in the previous round they defeated Dijon at home. In Montpellier they had a lead but they lost in the end, while against Dijon they turned the result up-side down. We don’t expect new changes in team now, except perhaps Tameze who might get a chance.
Probable lineups OGC Nice: Benitez – Burner, Pelmard, Nsoki, Coly – Cyprien, Lees Melou, Tameze – Ounas, Atal, Dolberg
Betting Pick: AS Monaco – OGC Nice
Monaco can certainly do much better than it did so far, while Nice achieved more than expects and has unexpectedly high number of points. That is why they could easily underperform now and Monaco could finally play a good match from the beginning till the end, and win for the first time.
Pick: Monaco wins
