Monaco vs Nantes Match Preview
Monaco have finally ended their four-match losing streak and earned four points in two Ligue 1 outings, as they host bottom-of-the-table rivals Nantes in search of all-important points with hopes they can build towards a mid-table spot – which still feels a long way to go for Leonardo Jardim’s men.
Les Monegasques have started scoring more goals and we’ve thus seen them beat Toulouse (2-1) and held Montpellier to a thriller 2-2 draw despite conceding a last-gasp equalizer. They will now need to keep it up and doing so against the Canaries will be an essential task.
Nantes come into the match amid a busy schedule where they look to bounce back from a 2-4 loss to Nimes on trips to Caen and Monaco, as they failed to build on a two-match winning streak seen beforehand. They’ve struggled to score goals away from home lately and this could be more worrying for Vahid Halilhodzic.
Canaries have thus proven themselves a tough nut to crack but still suffered 1-0 losses at PSG, Nimes, and Angers in December and January. They will now want a similar challenge but the clash hardly comes at the best time possible as Monaco finally seem like a unit more recently.
We will thus back Monaco to keep their streak going and bag all three points at Stade Louis II, as we go for a Home win at 4/5 with BetVictor. We’ve seen Nantes struggling for points on the road and we do see these woes extending this weekend as well.
However, we don’t see them going down easy and we thus hope to see goals on both ends, which has us backing a Yes on Both teams to score at Evens with Unibet – possibly the best approach to the fixture with both sides’ scoring and conceding numbers of goals lately.
