Nice vs Monaco Prediction and Betting Preview 07 Mar 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
Nice vs Monaco PredictionTwo sides, chasing down the European places, meet in the Derby de la Cote d’Azur in one of the fixtures billed to go down in the French Ligue 1 this weekend. French games really do not come any bigger and better than this!
Match status: 2019/20 Ligue 1 - Matchweek 28
Venue: Allianz Riviera (Nice)
Back in September, AS Monaco made light work of their local rivals Nice at the Stade Louis II, posting a 3-1 score-line on the board. Monaco looked the better side all through the game, Aleksander Golovin turning the cream of the crop for Les Monegasques in a tightly-contested affair in Monaco.

Last time out in the league, Robert Moreno’s men could only muster a one-all draw against Reims at home, despite going ahead early on through Wissam Ben Yedder’s 18th goal of the season.

OGC Nice also drew 1-1 last weekend, Adam Ounas helping them hold Girondins de Bordeaux at the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux.

This implies that Patrick Viera’s side have only lost one of their last 11 but only four of those have been wins. So, these two are ninth and seventh respectively, both just below the Europa League places.

Who will claim the bragging rights at Allianz Riviera?

Nice vs AS Monaco Team News

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 they have also 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.

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.

A big game between two teams who are playing really well recently. European places are not too far off and a few wins together could be just what these two need to get in there. Both have been putting points on the board recently, so don’t put it past them.

Monaco come here on the back of a really good five game unbeaten run, a period that has seen them win three games and draw two. Nice have done even better, they’ve lost just one of their last 11 games, although in that period six draws occurred and they had just four wins. Having said that, you have to play well to keep picking up draws, so credit to them for that.

We really like what Monaco have done recently, even though they’ve drawn their last two games. Prior to that they were solid, beating Angers, Amiens and Montpellier. If they get back to that kind of form then they are going to be very difficult to beat and for that reason we fancy them to win this one here.

Nice vs Monaco Predictions

We’ve got the feeling that Nice will need to put in a solid display to find the net against this Monaco outfit who we reckon will score one, at least. We’re therefore anticipating a very competitive game with a 0-1 winning margin for Monaco when the referee blows for full-time.
