Nice vs Monaco Prediction 9 January 2018

Tournament: Coupe de la Ligue
Location: Allianz Riviera Stadium
Match date: 09.01.2018 at 20:00

On January 9 2018 at 20:00 at the Allianz Riviera Stadium in Nice in the upcoming regular game of the Coupe de la Ligue quarterfinal the local Nice are playing against Monaco.

Nice finished the first season with rather controversial results, in fact. They managed to show incredibly great results in the previous season and there were different opinions about how they were ready to show the same results or not. They were in a crisis for some time, in fact, and they lost all of their matches played in the period since October till November. Anyway, they managed to improve their conditions a lot and now Nice are back to the championship. The first game of the new year 2018 Nice unexpectedly lost to Toulouse 1:0 in the Coupe de France.

As for Monaco, they, in their turn, are the current champions of the league and they obviously won’t be able to protect their title this time. Monaco are actually in the race for the second place and they seem to deal with this task really well. Now, after 19 games played in the national championship Monaco have 41 points and share the second place with Lyon. They also managed to start the year with a very good result as they outplayed Yzeure in the national cup in January 6.

The teams have played five games against each other since August 2015. In those matches Monaco won three times while Nice won once and, as you see, these results show no obvious advantage of any team. Unlike Nice, Monaco look rather concentrated in the national championship and that’s why it seems to us that even the away match is supposed to be successful for them. That’s why we think that the visitors are very likely to avoid a loss this time.
