On Sunday, Monaco will take on Nantes at the Stade de Beaujol in the Ligue 1.
The only thing that separates these two teams in the position of Monaco in sixth and Nantes in seventh place in the table.
Which one of these teams will start strong and finish first in 2022, or both?
Nantes must quickly calm any nerves before the match. The home team is in good form on their land. They have scored at least two goals in six of their seven last home games and not conceded a goal in three of their last three matches.
Monaco’s recent travels were not pleasant. In 13 of their 15 last away games, they conceded at least one goal. This could be a game plan, but it will all come down to time. This apparent weakness could make the difference between victory and defeat. This could pose a challenge to the visitors’ defense. This could be a case where the visitors are close but far away. But Nantes can do it.
Vettel was defeated 2-0 by Nantes in their last match.
Monaco is my favorite side. But, if Nantes can get the ball down, things could turn out to be very interesting. Although it may not seem obvious, the ‘Yes’ BTTS bet for this match is on a side that has no confidence.

Analysis of Teams
After barely surviving last season in Ligue 1, Nantes has been one of the biggest surprises of the 2021-22 seasons.
They won eight of the first 19 games and finished 2021 with a win against Lens, Lorient, and Saint-Etienne.
Nantes’ defense has been outstanding, conceding only 23 goals, which is the lowest of any team in Ligue 1.
Monaco had, however, lost three of their five first games of the season. Before that, they were in a slump.
They have now won eight consecutive games and lost just one of their first seven to St Germain. Germain is a fictional nation.
Monaco’s 2022 campaign kicked off last weekend with a win against Quevilly Rouen at the French Cup. They will now be in the last 16.
Monaco has not defeated Nantes in six meetings. They lost five of these this weekend.

Nantes vs Strasbourg Prediction
Both teams are on a good run, but it could prove difficult to predict the outcome of this match due to the absence of key players.
Monaco has more starters overall, but Southampton is more likely than Monaco to harm their defense. Therefore, a heavy loss is most likely.
