Match Preview

Two ex-Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ clash on the touchline for a ‘Derby de la Côte d’Azur’ with much riding on the result. Monaco lie four points adrift of safety ahead of kick-off, with head coach Thierry Henry knowing a win is crucial.
Monaco are winless at home in L1 this term (D3, L6), which constitutes their worst L1 run at home in half a century. The 2017 champions are still on-course for their lowest points tally in a top-flight season, but they will aim to somehow build on a respectable draw (at Marseille) last time out.
A tough customer as a player, Nice head coach Patrick Vieira will do everything he can to ensure his side maintain their record of having the best away defence in L1 this season. Having conceded just six league goals on the road, Nice subsequently boast the joint-third highest away points tally behind Lille and PSG.
This will be the 100th all-time meeting between the sides. Monaco lead the historic H2H series (W43, D27, L29) and are unbeaten in 38 of the 49 H2H matches played on home turf (W23, D15, L11).
Players to watch: Former Arsenal star Cesc Fábregas will make his home debut after helping Monaco to a draw in his first game under Henry.
With two goals apiece, Allan Saint-Maximin and Wylan Cyprien have scored each of Nice’s last four L1 goals.
Stat attack: Both Monaco (1.9 cards per match) and Nice (2.15 cards per match) find themselves in the bottom-five of the L1 disciplinary charts.
Nice have won here on just one of their last eight visits in all competitions (W1, D2, L5).
Matches involving Nice are averaging just 1.6 goals per-game so far this season, which is a league low.
