Monaco and Nimes will be facing each other at Stade Louis II on Friday night, with both sides looking to get back to winning ways in Ligue 1.

On the other hand, Nimes managed a hard-fought 3-3 draw on the road at Bordeaux, with Baptiste Guillaume, Antonin Bobichon and Umut Bozok all getting on the scoresheet for the newcomers.

Betting Tips for the game
Monaco were the runners-up to PSG last season, but they have had a terrible start into this 2018/19 competitive season. The Monegasques have won just once in six competitive fixtures so far this season, and are currently on a four-game winless streak. Their home form over the past few months has been decent, but they are still winless in two league fixtures this season.
On the other hand, Nimes have won their first two games in Ligue 1, but they have failed to win another game since then. They are currently winless in three league outings, but they did well to hold Bordeaux to a 3-3 draw away from home at the weekend. Nimes’ away form this season has been a complete mixed bag, but it has to be said that they have netted seven goals in just three league trips.
Although Monaco have been poor in this early part of the season, they do have an excellent head-to-head record against Nimes and should be able to grab all three points here. Our betting tips and predictions would back Monaco to win at odds 1.66.
