Full Time Result -> AS Monaco at odds 1.85
Monaco are showing signs of a Ligue 1 (L1) resurgence since the return of former boss Leonardo Jardim (W1, D1, L1), having picked up four points from their last two league fixtures. Now they have the opportunity to leave the drop zone - results pending elsewhere - if they can secure victory over Nantes in this match.At the heart of their season woes has been Monaco’s poor home form that has seen them record just one home win so far (W1, D4, L7) - the division’s lowest tally, alongside bottom-side Guingamp. In fact the hosts are a massive 31 points off the point haul they had accumulated at this stage last season.Nantes halted a run of four consecutive L1 away losses as they won 1-0 at relegation-threatened Caen midweek. That win, along with the four defeats prior, all involved a goalless first half.Having lost the last two H2Hs against Monaco, the visitors will be keen to start brightly. To do so, they will have to go against the odds and score the opener, something Nantes have only managed to achieve in 25% of their L1 fixtures this term.Players to watch: Monaco's leading L1 marksman Falcao (nine goals, one assist) netted in the last two H2Hs. Meanwhile Kalifa Coulibaly has scored in three of Nantes’ four competitive games this month.
