Nancy Monaco Preview

NANCY

Nancy weren’t very aggressive last week away at Metz, and easily accepted the rhythm imposed by opponents (Metz won 2-1).

They have one of the poorest away records in Ligue 1 (won only 3 points in 2017), and most their hopes lie in home games. If away from home Nancy are very shy, in front of own fans they are really pushy, especially lately, in the attempt to escape relegation.

They use a 4-3-3 system without any individual talents. Forward Dia is very active lately, and if you are looking for a scorer, he should probably be your first choice.

Nancy will miss midfielders Pedretti and Diarra.

MONACO

It seems like the European adventure will soon be over for Monaco. They lost 2-0 on home ground against one of the most organized sides in European football (Monaco – Juventus 0-2), and there aren’t many chances they will be able to make a comeback in second leg.

Monaco have a really impressive attacking department, and the entire season they relied mostly on outscoring opponents. Defenders never really assumed any responsibilities, and if opponents found the net, they had Mbappe and Falcao to level the situation. It worked in Ligue1, but it’s not enough for playing the Champions League final.

Guests welcome back forwards Carrillo.

BETTING

Although motivation is undoubtedly there, Monaco may be a bit demoralized after the Champions League defeat. Nancy should once again be very organized and aggressive (like always on home ground), and will definitely create many problems for Monaco. NANCY +1 at 2.19
