Monaco’s form this season makes for sorry reading, and it’s expected of the away side to capitalize; by getting something out of this clash

Monaco lock horns with Nice at the Stade Louis II for their Ligue 1 match on Wednesday evening.

The home side have made their worst start to a season since 1968-69, when they got relegated.

In fact, only Guingamp occupying bottom spot have recorded more defeats (12) than Monaco (11) this season. The away side who are far better off in this campaign will thus be looking to compound the woes of Theirry Henry’s men, with an outcome that sees Nice avoid defeat here priced at juicy odds of (1.57) with Bet365.

However, Patrick Viera’s men have not really enjoyed a decent run of form recently, picking just one win in their last five league games. And the last time both sides met on this ground, it ended in a 2-2 stalemate. So there is a likelihood both teams might share the spoils at the end of 90 minutes – which is offered at bulky odds of (3.30) with the same betting outfit.

Owing to the fact that Monaco looked an improved side after their 1-1 draw at Olympique Marseille last time out, they are being considered as slight favourites on their turf with Bet365 at odds of (2.30).

While the away side gets the underdogs tag at odds of (3.00).

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
