AS Monaco will travel to the Allianz Riviera Stadium, Nice’s headquarters in the middle of this week. Defending champion Ligue 1 will be eyeing the victory for the sake of qualifying for the semi-finals.
AS Monaco are still struggling to win the trophy at the end of the season, after their hopes of returning to win Ligue 1 is getting lost. This is because the performance of Paris Saint-Germain is getting stronger to dominate Ligue 1. In their efforts to win the Coupe de la Ligue, AS Monaco must be able to beat Nice in this fight.
Meanwhile, Nice have struggled hard in this season to continue to boost their position in the Ligue 1 standings, which Lucien Favre’s side have yet to swallow defeat in the last four matches. However, the defeat in the competition arena of the French Cup on Saturday (06/1) then, proving that they are still not consistent.
For Nice, this competition is the only place for them to carve out domestic achievements this season. In Ligue 1, it looks like the title will belong to PSG. While in the French Cup, the top of Toulouse over the weekend made sure their pace had to stop in the last 64. Learning from the defeat then Favre will certainly lower his best players in the game against Monaco later.
If Nice steps stalled in the French Cup, AS Monaco actually suffered the opposite fate. Leonardo Jardim’s team is a goal party against Moulins Yzeure. Come to the opponent’s headquarters, Monaco actually managed to achieve an absolute victory with a score of 2-5. In addition, they also look very consistent in the last few games, which Les Rouge et Blanc has recorded five consecutive wins in the last game. (Hyr)
