Football – France – Ligue 1 Betting Tips

There’s just the one match being played in the French top flight on Friday night but nevertheless, an important and highly anticipated clash between Monaco and Nice and also two former Arsenal legends as the betting tips continue.

Monaco coach Thierry Henry faces former Arsenal team-mate and Nice manager Patrick Vieira as the two teams lock horns at the Stade Louis II with the hosts keen to register a second league win on the trot and their first at home this season.

The hosts registered a much needed three points with a midweek 2-0 win away at fellow strugglers Amiens which has lifted Henry’s side out of the automatic relegation places although they now currently occupy the relegation play-off spot ahead of this encounter.

Monaco have recorded just three wins to date in this season’s Ligue 1 which have all come away from home, while their record at the Stade Louis II reads a disappointing  0-3-5  7/15. Evergreen striker Falcao (7 goals) looks the most likely for Monaco on Friday night.

Nice drew a blank for the second match on the trot when they were held to a very disappointing 0-0 draw at home by Angers SCO during the week which followed a previous 0-0 stalemate with bottom club Guingamp, which means Nice remain in 7th place.

Despite these recent disappointing results, Nice have extended their unbeaten run to six matches in Ligue 1 and they’ll be reasonably confident they can get something from their trip to Monaco on  Friday night with a solid looking away record of  4-3-1  7/4 to their name.

However, goals have been hard to come by for Vieira’s Nice outfit with midfielder Saint-Maximin (3 goals) being their leading goalscorer, and just one forward has scored 1 goal so far this season with both Balotelli and Le Bihan yet to open their account this term.

The recent win at Amiens should be a timely boost for Monaco and the betting tips advise backing the hosts with the draw no bet option here.
