Nantes – Monaco : Preview & Prediction
AS Monaco starts Ligue 1 on the grass of Nantes. This trip looks dangerous in the face of a team that has always been very solid at home. Despite the departure of Claudio Ranieri from the sidelines of the Canaries, Miguel Cardoso could prove to be a good pick for the leaders of Nantes. The former technician from Rio Ave hopes to make a great blow from the first day of the championship. Especially since AS Monaco does not seem at best for the return of the Ligue 1. While the club of the principality was heavily inclined during the Trophy of Champions against PSG (4-0), men Leonardo Jardim do not come with full confidence. The departures of Fabinho or Thomas Lemar could hurt the Monegasques. Having to adapt quickly to these important losses, Leonardo Jardim could take several weeks to adapt to his new workforce. A situation that could do the business of FC Nantes.
Mónaco have won just two of their six friendlies.
The principality club fell heavily against PSG during the Champions Trophy (4-0).
The losses of Fabinho and Thomas Lemar could be difficult to fill for the Monegasque leaders.
Nantes hopes to make a big blow on the first day of the championship.
Last season, FC Nantes managed to win against AS Monaco at the Stade de la Beaujoire (1-0).
Second in Ligue 1 last season, AS Monaco remains one of the great teams of this championship. However, the first few days could be tricky for Leonardo Jardim’s men. With many starts, the Portuguese technician will have to adapt quickly to his new workforce. This could clearly allow FC Nantes to take, at least, a point on his turf against the club of the principality.
