Monaco will look to put a disappointment and almost near certain elimination from the UEFA Champions League behind them as they go in search of 3 points against Nancy to maintain their lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table. Victory against Nancy will see them maintain their 3 point lead over PSG (or maybe six points) with a game still in hand over their rivals. Monaco will look to put out a strong team in this encounter as they aim to secure the victory especially against a relegation threatened side in Nancy. Mbappe, Falcao, Germain, Lemar will all have a point to prove to the world and to the plentiful scouts who showed up to watch their game last time against Juventus that they are extremely talented and will look to deliver the Ligue 1 title this season.
Nancy are sitting in the relegation zone, 1 point from Safety, but will have to go hell for leather if they want to try and usurp the almost Champions-elect. Nancy have been struggling in recent games having won just once in their lat 13 encounters in all competitions. While they have kept games close against the bigger sides, in recent games they have tried to attack in order to score goals and get out of the relegation zone but have been a victim on the counter attack losing 2-1 to Metz, 3-1 to Nice, 3-2 to Lorient, 2-1 to Lille. They will be weary of this Monaco side who beat them 6-0 in the reverse fixture at the Stade Louis II.
