The championship is felt decided for months in France. The decision regarding the remaining international starting places has already been made before the last matchday. The only open and exciting question is the one after the second relegated and the team that still has a chance of relegation via relegation. Last year’s runner-up AS Monaco is still not sensationally 100% saved. In the last game of the year, there is now the big and maybe last derby between Nice and Monaco!
Nice vs Monaco Football Betting Tips
The likelihood that it is indeed the last derby on the Cote d’Azur, however, is negligible. Everything would have to run against the Moengassen that the Jardim Elf finds on Friday night on the relegation place. But who would have expected such a season at all? Nobody! Nice will end the season in midfield (between seventh and ninth place) and can play in this derby freed. Although Nice has the home advantage, odds in excess of 3.00 are offered between Nice and Monaco for a successful home win prediction. The game starts on Friday at 21:05 in the Allianz Rivera.
Nice – Statistics & Current Form
The bottom of the table EA Guingamp has scored 27 goals in 37 league games so far this season. With such an offensive, the descent is not a big surprise. However, the team of the OGC Nice shows that not necessarily many goals are needed to be halfway successful. The club from the Cote d’Azur has achieved only 28 goals and thus one more than the tail light. The team of head coach Patrick Vieira, however, has the third best defensive of the league. Overall, so far only 35 goals had to be accepted. There is no such thing as a spectacle in Nice, and betting on a under 2.5 has been a great success this season. On average, only 1.70 hits were scored per game – the absolute negative in French Ligue 1. Also an interesting betting opportunity this season were the bets that both teams do not score. If in the Cote d’Azur derby between Nice and Monaco the tip is correct that both teams do not scores, odds of 2.10 will be paid out. These can be described as quite surprisingly high.
In recent games of a season, however, unusual results occur relatively often and therefore this tip is not necessarily recommended. Vieira has a very young team with the OGC Nice, which has a lot of talent. In addition to the ex-Hanoverian Saint-Maximin is expected in particular from players such as Youcef Atal or Malang Sarr in the future, a lot.
The home record of OGC Nice is clearly positive with nine wins, four draws and five defeats. However, the Vieira-Eleven could win only one of the last six league games (3-0 against relegated Guingamp). The air is a bit outside – after all, Nice has missed the Europa League and can look ahead.
Expected lineup of Nice:
↪ Benitez – Coly, Boscagli, Sarr, Pelmard – Lees Melou, Tameze, Danilo – Saint-Maximin, Ganago, Atal

Monaco – Statistics & Current Form
90 minutes and a little extra time, then the horror has finally come to an end. The runner-up of the past season can look back on a true disaster season. Many departures, which could not be compensated, coupled with an incredible injury pitch brought the Monegassen in the Bredouille. The negative spiral turned on and on – after all, the super-GAU could probably be avoided. Last weekend, head coach Leonardo Jardim – who has since been dismissed and then reinstated – celebrated a vital 2-0 home win over SC Amiens. Thanks to these three points, Monaco have a three-point advantage over SM Caen and a seven-goal better goal-sharing gap before the last game of the 2018/19 season. The danger of the relegation is probably only on the paper.
In the meantime, the AS Monaco already seemed to be saved. After Jardim returned to the bench, a small upswing was visible. However, the team then fell back into a hole. Before the 2-0 victory last weekend against SC Amiens, the Monegasque seven times in a row without victory. The burden of the many setbacks is clearly felt. Even a few situations can put the framework of AS Monaco on extremely shaky legs. Laxity, self-assurance and self-confidence are missing in every corner. The squad has far more quality than the results suggest. Considered soberly, the role as a favorite is certainly understandable. For an away win in the duel between Nice and Monaco attract odds amounting to a 2.40.
The Monegassen do not have to win and would already fix the league with a draw also computationally. Completing the horror season with a positive result, however, could be very important in the coming weeks. Personnel goalkeeper Danijel Subasic will fail and central defender Jemerson will be missing out. Thus, Naldo could get another chance. The 36-year-old has already received two red cards in 303 Ligue 1 minute. Unfortunately for him, his commitment could not have been more unfortunate, but with a good performance he too could conclude the season in a conciliatory manner.
Expected lineup of Monaco:
↪ Benaglio – Ballo-Toure, Glik, Naldo, Henrichs – Martins, Silva, Golovin, Sidibe – Falcao, Carlos Vinicius
Last matches from Monaco:
⚽️ 18.05.2019 – AS Monaco vs. Amiens 2: 0 (Ligue 1)

⚽️ 05.05.2019 – AS Monaco vs. AS St. Etienne 2: 3 (Ligue 1)
⚽️ 01.05.2019 – Rennes Vs. AS Monaco 2: 2 (Ligue 1)

⭐️ Goals are a rarity – on average, only 1.70 goals per game were scored in games involving Nice!
⭐️ The last two away games in Nice have lost Monaco 0: 4!
⭐️ Three points and seven goals ahead – Monaco is more or less saved!

In the Derby it does not need any extra motivation, but Nice will not want to shoot the Monegas into the second division either. These games would be missing the fans and players in the coming year. Monaco has a stronger squad but is still not saved. This starting point allows a prediction on the guest victory between Nice and Monaco.
