Monaco comes to this game with little motivation, after adding one more defeat, the second in a row, this time against Metz, 3-0. We remember that the Monegasques had lost on the first day, against Olympique de Lyon. In this reception at Nimes, coach Leonardo Jardim should maintain his usual tactical scheme, 4-3-3, with Gelson Martins, Henry Onyekuru and Ben Yedder being the most offensive references of the team. Monaco has had some difficulties in the offensive sector, something that has hurt the team in their matches. For this match the coach can not count on Aguilar, suspended, in addition to Falcao, Jovetic, Pellegri and Subasic, these with physical problems.
Currently in the 19th position, the visiting team did not conquer any points so far. On the 1st day he lost out with the PSG by (3‑0). On the following day, the final score registered a defeat by (1-2) in the home game against Nice. This is a stronger team with the support of his fans, since in the last 30 games he has 3 wins, 2 draws and 10 losses as a visitor; against 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses in his stadium. In its last 10 away games, Nîmes records 2 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses. The team allowed goals to the opponent in 7 of the last 10 games, so his defense needs to improve, but his attack has scored regularly, as he scored goals in 7 of the last 10 games. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 16 of their last 22 matches have ended with Over 2.5 goals.
Nimes comes to this unmotivated match, after a 1-2 defeat against Nice, registering their second consecutive loss in this French championship: the team’s only goal was scored by Ripart. In this away game, coach Bernard Blaquart must keep the team in 4-5-1, in favor of a more defensive style of play, looking for any space to counterattack. Ripart is the most dangerous player in the attack front, being the top scorer of the Nimes, with 1 goal scored. For this game, the coach does not have Martinez and Briancon available, both suspended.
