Defending champions AS Monaco will look to continue their impressive start to the season when they visit troubled Nice in this encounter.

Nice have started the season in a dreadful manner and they are still looking for their second win in all competitions.

They finished last season in 3rd position ahead of Olympique Marseille and Lyon and many tipped them to do better this season after they added Wesley Sneijder and retained the service of Jean Seri.

They lost their first league match 1-0 to St Etienne and followed that up with a shocking home loss to newly promoted Troyes – they won their 3rd league fixture 2-0 against Guingamp and then fell to another 3-0 loss to Amiens last time out.

AS Monaco represent another tough opponent for them and it will be interesting to see how they react.

AS Monaco are playing their first game since they lost Kylian Mbappe to PSG although they have not played him in their last two games.

They have however done very well in terms of coping with the departures from their team with the likes of Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva and Valerie Germain leaving them.

They have maintained a 100% record in this new season and continue to keep the pressure on PSG who have invested heavily this summer.

Radamel Falcao has also rediscovered his scoring boots and will be the biggest danger for them in this game.
