The Monaco vs. Nice match will be played on Tuesday, January 16, at the Louis II Stadium, Monaco. Monaco is currently 2nd on the Ligue 1 table with 42 points, while Nice is 6th on the table with 30 points at the moment.
In their previous ten meetings, Monaco recorded six victories, Nice had three wins, while one match ended in a draw. In their last four games we saw over 2.5 goals, while we didn't see a draw for nine straight games.
Monaco, Lyon and Marseille will fight for the second place on the table until the end of the season. PSG is 11 points ahead of Monaco at the moment and it seems they will reclaim the throne long before the season ends. Monaco had a bad European season - they finished last in Champions League group with Porto, Leipzig and Besiktas, which was a huge disappointment. In the league, they proclaimed the biggest ambitions before the start of the season, but after Mbappe transferred to PSG, it became clear that the title will return to Paris. They will fight for the place in Champions League.
