Monaco vs Nimes - Free Betting Tips

AS Monaco
Nimes

Monaco would hope for a turnaround in their fortunes when they host Nimes at Stade Louis II on Friday night. The principality club have made a terrible start to their season on multiple fronts. However, a home game against a recently promoted side presents them with a decent opportunity to stop their winless run. Meanwhile, Nimes are back in Ligue 1 for the first time since 1992-93. Ahead of this game, they are placed eighth in the league table with seven points.

Following their opening day win at Nantes, Monaco have picked up just two points from their four games. It’s hard to back them against Nimes because of their recent form, but we also don’t see them losing against Nimes, who were playing in Ligue 2 last season. Nimes have been scoring for fun and only Marseille and PSG have scored more goals this season. Thus, both teams to score and over 3.5 goals both look good bets for this game.

Nimes played a 3-3 draw at Bordeaux in their last game, and we are backing them to pick up another high-scoring draw on in our Monaco vs Nimes betting tips for today.

Monaco vs Nimes Betting Tips: Form Guide

Monaco aim to recover from poor start

Monaco are aiming to recover from a wretched start to their season as they prepare to face Nimes. After starting the Ligue 1 season with a win at Nantes, Monaco have suffered losses to Bordeaux(A) and Marseille(H). They have also been held to draws by Lille(H) and Toulouse(A). As things stand, Monaco find themselves in the 15th spot with five points, which puts them just a single point clear of the relegation zone.

The Ligue 1 side were also involved in Champions League on Tuesday. They put in a much-improved performance but suffered a 1-2 home defeat to Atletico Madrid. Thus, Monaco will only get a two-day break ahead of their game against Nimes, and this could influence Leonardo Jardim’s team selection.

Monaco have not looked like their usual-self going forward this season and have managed only seven goals. Radamel Falcao and Youri Tielemans are currently their top-scorer with two goals each. Major summer-signing Aleksandr Golovin is yet to make his debut while Stevan Jovetic has made only two league appearances. These two names have proved to be big misses for Monaco. Ronael Pierre Gabriel, Rony Lopes and Danijel Subasic are also injured for the hosts. The next section in our Monaco vs Nimes match preview focuses on the visitors’ form guide.

Nimes hope to build up on their impressive start

Nimes finished second in Ligue 2 last season to book a place in the top tier of French football for the first time in last 25 years. The visitors sit in the eighth spot with seven points. However, they are without a win in their last three games, and they come into this game following a 3-3 draw at Bordeaux last weekend. The most pleasing factor of Nimes’ fine start has been their willingness to play attacking football. They are currently third-best scorers in Ligue 1 with 12 goals. Antonin Bobichon, Renaud Ripart and Sada Thioub have all scored two goals each for Nimes this season.

At the same time, Nimes have looked shaky at the back and have conceded 12 goals. Four of their five games have witnessed a minimum of four goals, and we can expect another goal-fest on Friday.

The visitors have a number of players unavailable for this game. Teji Savanier is suspended for the game while the likes of Rachid Alioui, Fethi Harek and Pierrick Valdivia are ruled out with injuries. Moustapha Diallo is a doubt after missing the trip to Bordeaux. Umut Bozok and Baptiste Guillaume started up front against Bordeaux and both were on target. Both should keep their places in the starting eleven against Monaco.

Monaco vs Nimes Preview: Recent Meetings

Monaco are undefeated in their last four meetings with their opponents. The last meeting between these two sides took place in the 2015-16 Coupe de France. Monaco claimed an 2-0 away win in the game. Both sides also faced each other in Ligue 2 in 2012-13. Monaco managed a 1-0 win the away game, but they were held to a 1-1 draw at home. Thus, the last time these two sides played at this stadium, the game ended in a draw.

Nimes’ last success over Monaco came in the form of a penalty win in the 2001-02 edition of Coupe de France. The head-to-head record certainly doesn’t indicate an away win, but a draw is a huge possibility in our Monaco vs Nimes betting tips.

Monaco vs Nimes Prediction: High Scoring Draw

Monaco were runners-up in Ligue 1 last season, but currently, they find themselves closer to the wrong end of the table.

The Ligue 1 side underwent a massive overhaul during the summer, but new signings have failed to kick on for Jardim. Furthermore, their marquee signing is yet to make an appearance. However, a home game against Nimes is a good opportunity for Monaco to finally kickstart their season. However, they would need to be solid at the back if they hope to beat Nimes.

The visitors have arguably been the most entertaining side in Ligue 1 this season. Ahead of the season, they were among favourites to finish in the bottom three at the end of the season. However, they have surprised almost everybody with their emphatic start to the season.

They have scored four against Angers, three against Marseille and Bordeaux, and two against champions Paris Saint-Germain, so we don’t expect Monaco to keep a clean sheet against them. However, Toulouse managed a clean sheet in the 1-0 home win over Nimes last month. Monaco might use that game as a blueprint for Friday, but it would be a difficult task to keep Nimes at bay.
