Monaco vs Nice Prediction & Betting tips
AS Monaco booked a hard-won draw at Olympique Marseille last weekend. Can a suitable follow-up be given to Olympique Nice on Wednesday-evening?
The Monegasken have a fresh start in the new calendar year: both in the Coupe de France and the Coupe de la Ligue the next round was reached and last weekend was in the competition a hard-won tip caught against Olympique Marseille. Despite an early deficit, the team of Thierry Henry managed to get back into the game by a goal from the Belgian Youri Tielemans who was already effective for the fifth time this season. Because of the fifth draw of this season, AS Monaco is still in the relegation zone, but the deficit in the safe seventeenth place is still with four points and a match less played.
With Youri Tielemans and Cesc Fabregas, the Monegasken have an impressive midfield this season for the first time. After the dramatic first half of the season, much more is expected this year from the team of Henry who seems to have learned from the preparation of mere young talents. With players like Rony Lopes, Youri Tielemans and Aleksandr Golovin there are still plenty of players on the field at the Monegasken who have their best years ahead, but winter transfers in the form of Cesc Fabregas and Naldo have clearly been investments in experience immediately produced a point against Olympique Marseille.
Olympique Nice matches are not known to be spectacular this season, but Patrick Vieira’s team shows that it is not necessary to achieve results either. In a spectacular cup match against Toulouse was lost 4-1 over a week ago, but in his own home Vieira proved his team the strongest against Girondins de Bordeaux. Allan Saint-Maximin, the goalkeeper of Les Aiglons this season, after a little over fifteen minutes, coolly used a penalty and scored the only goal of the game. With the eighth win of the season, Olympique Nice is now on a shared sixth place, making placement for European football a real option.
Because of the first victory in seven games, Les Aiglons rose again in the rankings, but the football of the Vieira team does not yet resemble that of a team from the top six. Of all Ligue 1 teams, the number of goals scored by Olympique Nice is fourteen, but the number of goals against seventeen is also extremely low. It is remarkable that in only one of the ten last matches of Nice in the competition both teams scored, so the first goal often seems to be decisive for the remainder of the game.
