Monaco have been a really great team in recent years but this season they are having a really bad time. However, they have been improving lately and they will now play host to Nice on Wednesday. Nice are coming off a win but have been really struggling to get results in the past month or so. Monaco (3-11-5) are having the worst season in quite a few years and are actually in danger of relegating. While that may seem quite unlikely for a team like Monaco, they are indeed sitting at the 19th spot of the league table with 14 points, four below the red line. However, they have been improving lately and are coming into this match after a solid 1-1 draw on the road against Marseille. More importantly, they have lost just once in their last five (2-1-2) and were reinforced in the winter transfer window. Nice (8-6-5) are coming into this match after quite a lucky win at home against Bordeaux, in a match where they scored the only goal of the match at an early penalty kick. Their opponents were much better and deserved the win. That win put an end to Nice's six-match win-less streak (0-4-2), during which they scored just two goals. Nice are now sitting at the 8th spot of the league table with 29 points, four behind the 4th Saint Etienne and the European spots.

Nice did great to hold Monaco to a 2-2 draw in this venue last season after beating them by 0-4 at home. But they traditionally struggle here, having one just once in the past ten years (1-5-2). Monaco made some quality additions over the past few weeks and will get some of their dozen injuries back.
