Nantes will be taking on visiting team Monaco at Stade de la Beaujoire in a Ligue 1 tie on Sunday.
Nantes are out to avenge a disappointing loss against Monaco in their most recent meeting. According to the bookmakers, the home side could be in for another tough ride.
Nantes scored nine goals, conceded 16 and fought their way to three clean sheets in their previous ten matches.
When it comes to goal-scoring Monaco are not the most prolific side. They scored a sustainable 19 times in their previous ten matches, making it 1.9 goals per game. They conceded 14 goals for an average of 1.4 a game, achieving a clean sheet in two of these matches.
It was an enormously entertaining 4-1 match, when these two sides last played each other in the Ligue 1. A similar feast of goals would go down well this coming Sunday.
Nantes vs Monaco Prediction
Nantes delivered a bit of everything as their last three matches added four points to their tally. An encounter with Lyon brought a 1-1 draw, which was followed by a 0-3 defeat at the hands of Reims. Their most recent game had them back on the winning trail, as they beat Lyon by 1-0. Nantes just have a single home win to show from their efforts in the past six Ligue 1 matches at the Stade de la Beaujoire. They also drew two and lost three of these six encounters, in which they scored three and conceded eight goals.
Monaco look back on their last three matches with six points to show for their efforts. Against Reims, they were left empty-handed in a 0-1 defeat, but they bounced back by beating AC Ajaccio in a 0-2 win. They followed that up with a 4-3 win against Strasbourg in their most recent outing. Monaco managed a decent return of three wins in their last six Ligue 1 away matches, in which they scored 11 while also conceding six times. They also experienced three draws and zero defeats.
Going forward, Nantes and Monaco are both in decent form, while at the same time being generous in defence. We are confident, both teams will find the back of the net this coming Sunday.
Nantes have a record of six wins, 12 draws and 11 defeats in the Ligue 1 this season. Monaco enjoy a record of 17 wins, six draws and six defeats in the Ligue 1.
