Monaco vs Nantes Prediction, Odds and Free Tips (06/08/2021)

Monaco vs Nantes kick-off our Ligue 1 previews in the new season of 2021/22. Our detailed analysis looks into this game and provides our readers with free betting predictions and tips.

Our Top Free Predictions for Monaco vs Nantes

Nantes survived relegation last season when they defeated Ligue 2 side, Toulouse, in the first leg of relegation playoffs even though they lost 1-0 in the second leg. Do they have a chance against Monaco in the first game of the season? Here are the best three predictions from Punditfeed:

Note that the odds for this game are likely to change on Betfred before kick-off. Please confirm your best slip with the bookmaker for updated prices before placing a bet on our predictions.

Monaco to get their first victory of the season

While the first match of the season is often a tricky one to predict, Monaco is a far much better side and should sail past Nantes. Historically, Monaco has defeated Nantes fourteen times and bagged two draws in 18 meetings. Nantes has only defeated Monaco twice, and the first one was an away victory back in October 2012.

Monaco favourites to win both halves

Our second prediction backs Monaco to win both halves. Monaco won both legs against Nantes last season. The hosts have also defeated Nantes in the last six meetings. Home advantage plus a good pre-season should inspire the hosts to get their first three points of the season against Nantes that has had defensive troubles in pre-season fixtures.

Over 2.5: Yes

We are also predicting more than two goals between Nantes and Monaco. This will be the first game in French Ligue 1 new season and Monaco is a team that likes outscoring opponents. While Monaco kept only two clean sheets and lost once in their last six games, they come to this game with a 2-0 victory over Sparta Praha in UCL qualification games. On the other hand, Nantes has all but struggled in pre-season, losing four of their last six games.

Game Preview:  Monaco vs Nantes Raise the Curtains on French Ligue 1 2021/22 Season

French Ligue 1 fans will be hooked to their screens as others troop to the stadium to watch the first game of the season between Monaco and Nantes. We have more details in our team previews below.

Monaco

Monaco starts off the 2021/22 season against Nantes, a team that struggled to stay up last season. The hosts finished third last season, a spot that earned them a place in Champions League qualification fixtures. They come to this match with a 2-nil victory over Sparta Praha in the first UCL qualifier match and six victories over Nantes in the last six meetings.

Nantes

A poor run in pre-season is a big worry for Nantes as they kick off the new season against Monaco. Antoine Kombouare will still be the head coach after successfully steering Nantes in the last few games last season. Nantes registered a strong resurgence in their last five games last season but a poor run in six pre-season games brings back bad memories for Antoine Kombouare and his travelling squad. For Nantes, a strong start this season is necessary if they want to avoid a relegation battle like last season.
