On the opening day of the French Ligue 1 season, Monaco, who finished in a Champions League qualification place last season, welcome Nantes, who narrowly avoided relegation in the last campaign, to Stade Louis II.
Monaco have had what will have been a pleasing pre-season for their fans, only losing one of their five pre-season friendlies before going on to win the first leg of their Champions League qualification matches against Sparta Prague 0-2.
The home leg of this Champions League clash is scheduled to take place on Tuesday the 10th of August, making the next game Monaco will be playing after this Ligue 1 season opener against Nantes.
Nantes didn’t get the best set of results during their pre-season campaign, however, they did have plenty of time to fine-tune their tactics for the upcoming season playing six friendlies, four of which were at home.
Nantes beat fellow French sides Guingamp and Brest, but lost to the likes of Clermont, Lorient, Niort and Caen, although all of the losing scorelines were by a single goal margin.
Monaco have won the last six matches against Nantes, with Nantes last winning this faceoff during their home league tie back in November 2017 at the Stade de la Beaujoire.
Odds For Monaco v Nantes
For the best odds on not only this match between Monaco and Nantes in the French Ligue 1 but for any other game in the top 33 football leagues around the world, you’ve come to the right place.
Based on the final positions of Monaco and Nantes last season, as well as the results of the games between these two sides, it’s no surprise that Monaco are the strong favourites heading into this particular match.
If you were planning on wagering on some higher prices for this match but don’t quite fancy the idea of Nantes causing an upset, it could be worth a punt on a match result and both teams to score bet instead, where you can get these excellent prices:
Monaco finished in seventeenth place during the 2018/19 season, then ninth in the 2019/20 season, before their third-place finish last time out. It could well be worth a bet on them finishing around the top of the league again based on this upward trajectory.
Monaco v Nantes Teams
Monaco manager Niko Kovak has done some good business during this transfer window, bringing in a range of young talent to bulk up his squad as they look to finish at least as high up the league as they did last season.
Players brought in include centre-forward Myron Boadu from AZ Alkmaar for a fee of €17 million, central midfielder Jean Lucas from fellow French side Lyon for a fee of €11 million, and left midfielder Ismail Jakobs from Bundesliga side FC Koln for a fee of around €6.5 million.
Nantes head coach Antoine Kombouare will be hoping to finish well above seventeenth where they ended up last season – neither the players nor the fans will fancy another relegation scare.
He has made three official signings, as well as bringing in a few recruits from the Nantes B team. Included in those transfers are two goalkeepers – Alban Lafont from Fiorentina for a fee of €6.75 million and Remy Descamps from RSC Charleroi for an undisclosed fee, as well as central midfielder Wylan Cyprien on loan from Parma.
