Monaco vs Nantes: Preview, Free Tip & Prediction

05.08.2021 12:30

The new edition of the French league will start on Friday night with Monaco vs Nantes. The Prince's club were in Prague during the week, where they successfully entered the 3rd round of the Champions League against Sparta and scored a 2-0 win. Niko Kovac's team would like to repeat a similar scenario in their league debut against the 18th team of last season's Ligue 1. 

Basic information, news and team form

Monaco reached the 3rd place in the league last season and held the title fight for a long time, so they are rightfully among the biggest favourites for the new season. The squad has seen few changes over the summer: virtually all key players have been retained and the team has been boosted by some interesting names, such as Dutch striker Myron Boadu from Alkmaar, who has scored 35 league goals in the Eredivisie over the last two seasons. He could be an excellent addition to Monaco's already strong offensive line. 

Nantes has had a significantly less successful 20/21 season, changing manager three times during the season and staying in relegation waters for a long time, which was very unusual for a traditional club. In the end, it was 18th place and a barrage against second-tier Toulouse. After 2-1 away and 0-1 at home, Nantes narrowly saved their place in the league, but it wasn't for big celebrations. The prospects for the new season are not rosy either: not many reinforcements came in, the talented midfielder Louza left for Watford and the team won only 2 out of 6 games in the preparation, playing exclusively against teams from Ligue 1 and Ligue 2. 



Betdoin's view of the game 

The deserved favourite for the match is the home side Monaco. However, the Prince's club have a trip to Prague on Tuesday and a rematch next week, so they have a tough schedule to deal with at the start of the season and a slight rotation of the line-up is possible. For Nantes, on the other hand, this will be their first competitive match, against a strong opponent, so a very cautious approach can be expected. Betdoin algorithm sees value in a bet on under 3.5 goals in the match. Monaco has a very good defensive team and even Nantes didn't burn in this respect last year, so the match may offer a close battle in which Monaco will lay siege to the visitors' formed defence. 



Absentees and estimated line-ups 

Given the aforementioned schedule, Monaco will probably rotate the lineup a bit, but the axis of the team should be similar to the one against Sparta. Striker Boadu, who only joined the team this week, will be hoping for his first start. Nantes will have to do without key striker Kola Muani, who represented France at the Olympic tournament, and midfielder Chirivella, who has a card from last year, will also be missing. 

Monaco - estimated line-up:

Nubel - Sidibe, Disasi, Badiashile, Jacobs - Martins, Matazo, Tchouameni, Golovin - Volland, Ben Yedder

Nantes - estimated line-up:

Lafont - Corchia, Castelletto, Pallois, Traoré - Girotto, Cyprien - Blas, Sa, Simon - Edmond
