Monaco are playing at home against Nantes for essential points that will help them in the fight for avoiding relegation in Ligue 1. Over the week Nantes won with 1-0 Caen in a postponed match with a goal after a penalty of Valentin Rongier, which increased their lead from the relegation zone to eight points. The eventual failure of The Canaries on Wednesday could have put the club in a very awkward situation before the away game on Stade Louis II. The victory over Caen was just the third as guests since the start of the season.
Monaco can only regret that couldn’t take the three points in the away fixture versus Montpellier over the weekend after they had the 2-1 lead until the 90th minute of the game. Eventually, a goal after a penalty in the extra time brought one point for The Monégasques which now will have to chase a mandatory victory on Saturday. Since the start of the season, Monaco have just one win on Stade Louis II that came at the beginning of February with 2-1 against Toulouse.
Although Nantes’s results have not shown it lately, their attackers are playing attractive football and are capable of creating dangerous situations for a goal. The defeats against Nimes and Angers were rather a lack of luck and Nantes deserved at least one point in both games. Monaco have quality players, but the team is playing too attacking football which is prerequisite for danger also in front of their net. The Monégasques had just one clean sheet at home since the start of the season, which came in the goalless draw versus Lille in August.
