Monaco – Nantes Tips and Odds. September 13, 16:00 FRANCE: Ligue 1 – Round 3.
Monaco – Nantes Preview
- AS Monaco face Nantes on the back of just one defeat in eight Ligue 1 (L1) matches (W4, D3, L1). Each of the last four games in that sequence saw the teams separated by a single goal at half-time (HT: W3, L1), with each of Monaco’s HT leads being ‘1-0’. Additionally, that scoreline has applied at HT/FT in each of Monaco’s last two league H2Hs vs Nantes (both won).
- ‘Les Monégasques’ (ASM) have seen four of their last five home league wins accompanied by a clean sheet. Meanwhile, three (60%) of their last five L1 home wins have seen them win the first half by a one-goal margin, as have four (66.67%) of their last six L1 home H2Hs vs Nantes.
- Nantes may be reliant on the first goal, as a 64% majority (16) of their last 25 L1 matches have produced under 2.5 total match goals. In relation to that, 20 (80%) of Nantes’ last 25 L1 games won/lost have yielded a single-goal margin of victory, with a 55% majority (11) of those 20 matches ending 1-0 either way.
- However, Nantes travel after six straight L1 defeats at Monaco, the last five of which produced under 1.5 total second-half goals. Five of those six losses produced an odd number of total first-half goals.
- Players to watch: Benoît Badiashile won it for Monaco in his last outing, and in turn, each of his three prior goals at senior level have proven final in their respective matches (W1, D2).
- The now-permanently signed Moses Simon is aiming to improve on his return of five L1 goals attained with Nantes last season. Four of them arrived beyond the hour mark, of which two proved decisive in victory.
- Hot stat: In a sequence going back to December 1979, Nantes have ended up losing every one of the last 16 top-flight away league games at Monaco to see them trail at HT. Over half (nine) of those games saw them specifically trail 1-0 at the break.
