Nantes vs Monaco Predictions

  • Nantes have kept nine clean sheets in their last 14 outings, while Monaco have kept three in their last five.
  • This season’s Ligue 1 clashes between Nantes and Monaco finished as 1-1 and 0-0 draws.
  • Nantes are yet to concede a goal in their Coupe de France run, keeping four successive clean sheets.

French cup semi-final could be tight

With Paris Saint-Germain being dumped out of the Coupe de France back in January, this year’s edition of the French domestic cup appears to be wide open. European contenders Nantes and Monaco, therefore, should both fancy their chances of lifting the trophy, going into their semi-final clash with strong defensive records.

Nantes made headlines with a 3-1 win over PSG just days ago, but it is their defensive record which has them challenging for a Europa League spot; they have kept a superb nine clean sheets in their last 14 matches in all competitions, only conceding eight times in that run. Meanwhile, they are yet to concede a single goal in their Coupe de France run this campaign.

Monaco, meanwhile, sit just two places and one point behind Nantes in Ligue 1, after falling to a 2-1 loss to Reims on Sunday. That was their third match without a win in succession, but they too have defended well, keeping three clean sheets in their last five matches, four of which have contained fewer than three goals.

Tense semi-final shouldn’t produce three goals

Five of Nantes’ last six outings have contained two goals or fewer, the exception behind their thrilling win over French football’s dominant force PSG, and the two teams boast the sixth- and fifth- best defensive records in Ligue 1, respectively. Meanwhile, their two league meetings this term produced a total of just two goals.

Nantes last won this competition in 2000, and Monaco have not tasted cup glory since 1991, so both will be keen to seize a rare shot at silverware this term. With that in mind, and considering the strong defensive records of both outfits, we’re expecting a tense contest to produce under 2.5 goals.

Only PSG and Rennes, however, have better Ligue 1 home records than Nantes, so a memorable 1-0 home win could be a decent correct score prediction.
