Nantes vs Monaco Predictions

A Battle of Contrasts at Stade de la Beaujoire

Key Stats
– Nantes have secured only one win in their last 17 Ligue 1 fixtures.
– Monaco boast an aggregate scoreline of 7-2 from their two league matches this season.
– Nantes have consistently conceded two goals in five of their previous nine home league games.

As Ligue 1 gets into its stride, the Stade de la Beaujoire prepares to host a battle between two contrasting sides. Nantes, unfortunately, find themselves in the familiar territory of recent losses, while Monaco gleam at the top with back-to-back triumphs. The intriguing face-off promises to be an eventful start to the weekend’s fixtures.

Nantes’ Wobbly Start

The Canaries’ aspiration was to commence the 2023-24 season on a more confident note, especially given their near-relegation experience from the previous campaign. However, the initial fixtures have not been kind. Nantes unexpectedly conceded two late goals to Toulouse during their opener, and Mostafa Mohamed’s early penalty could not salvage the game.

The subsequent match at Lille’s Stade Pierre-Mauroy was no better. Despite dominating with 14 shots and even having a numerical advantage due to Alexsandro’s red card, Pierre Aristouy’s team left empty-handed. The 2-0 loss, accentuated by goals from Jonathan David and Adam Ounas, means that the Canaries are yet to register any points.

Monaco’s Rampant Run

Monaco, on the flip side, have been the epitome of finesse. The Monegasques began their campaign with a thrilling 4-2 win at Clermont. The spotlight, as often, was on their talisman, Wissam Ben-Yedder, who bagged two goals. This means he has now netted an impressive 101 goals in 169 outings for Monaco since his 2019 move from Sevilla.

The subsequent fixture saw Monaco dominate Strasbourg in a 3-0 victory, with Ben-Yedder adding to his tally. However, the limelight was stolen by Takumi Minamino, who netted twice in the first half.

Given Monaco’s stellar away record from the previous season, Adi Hutter’s squad will be hoping to add another win to their growing list.

Team News and Tactics

Nantes will be without their goalkeeper, Alban Lafont, due to injury, and Remy Descamps will step up in his stead. Key players Fabien Centonze and Ignatius Ganago are also absent, forcing Aristouy into some crucial decisions. Mostafa Mohamed, after his opening game goal, will lead the attack.

Monaco’s injury concerns include Breel Embolo, Mohammed Salisu, and Edan Diop. However, given their recent form, manager Adi Hutter is unlikely to tweak the starting XI too much. The prolific duo of Ben-Yedder and Minamino will be spearheading the attack, supported by Aleksandr Golovin.


  1. Match Outcome: Considering the statistics and form, we predict a Monaco win. Nantes’ recent home performances, combined with Monaco’s impressive away record, make the visitors the favourites. Nantes have had their struggles at the Stade de la Beaujoire, whereas Monaco’s confidence is sky-high.
  2. Correct Score: Given both sides’ recent scoring trends, a 2-1 victory for Monaco seems plausible. Monaco’s potent attack is likely to breach Nantes’ defence, but the Canaries might get a consolation goal.
  3. Goalscorer Prediction: Wissam Ben-Yedder is our pick to find the back of the net. His exceptional form, coupled with his history against teams like Nantes, makes him a prime candidate.
