Nice vs AS Monaco Preview

Nice vs AS Monaco

Competition – French Coupe de la Ligue

Stadium – Allianz Riviera

Date: 9th January 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

AS Monaco will be hoping to get to the semifinal of the Coupe de la Ligue this year after nearly winning it last season but they have to beat an in-form Nice at the Allianz Riviera first.

Nice have had a turbulent season after finishing inside the top four last season.

However, the Mario Balotelli inspired side have started to find some form and they head into this game off the back of four wins from their last five league games.

This run of form has seen them climb up to sixth in the league table.

Balotelli has been a major driver of their revival as he has scored in each of his last five league games taking his total tally to 10 goals in 13 league games.

He also scored their goal in the last round as they won against Lille on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

AS Monaco are also enjoying some kind of revival this season following a disappointing start that saw them fail to win even a single Champions League game.

They come into this game having won their last four games in all competitions and have netted at least 2 goals in each of their last five matches, including a 2-0 win over Caen in the last round.

Monaco have lost their last two visits to Nice by 4-0 each.
