LIVE – Nice-Monaco: The Monegasques are not far from affording the derby

Change for Monaco

From Golovin, who gave a lot. Jakobs replaced him in the left lane.

First save of the game for Schmeichel

Caio Henrique passes it on the attack and goes alone. The Brazilian side takes its chance from outside the area, Schmeichel lays on this ball.

Embolo is on the ground

The scorer of the match remained on the ground and requested the intervention of the trainers, slightly touched. He has to finish the game.

Nice can’t

We didn’t see the Eagles getting too close to the top of the Nübel. The latest changes did not bring much, Diop or Beka Beka did not provide the necessary binder to the clever Delort-Laborde doublet in front.


Monaco are unbeaten in their last 7 trips in Ligue 1 (5 wins, 2 draws), the best streak in Paris and the longest streak for ASM in the top flight since December 2017-April 2018 (also 7).

Double change for Nice

Diop is looking for his former teammates, while Bryan starts his first one at the Gym. Bard and Grandfather came out.

This is urgent for the Eagles

People in Nice need to wake up, the Monegasques have really got their hands on the game now. Rosario has been somewhat absent from the debates since entering the break, missing Nice in the exchange compared to Thuram.


This is the second goal of the season in Ligue 1 for Embolo, Ben Yedder preferred tonight. The Swiss agreed with his coach.


Monaco only needed one to open the scoring!!! With ASM yet to have a shot on target, Embolo fired in a superb cross from Caio Henrique with a header from close range, it was the Monegasques who found the error!!

VAR has not changed

In the end, Bard’s hand was disallowed as Fofana’s offside was well validated. The game continues.

Change for Monaco… and VAR

Aguilar leaves, replaced by Vanderson. In the meantime, the video refereeing will return to the previous action … A Bard hand will whistle, but inside or outside the box?

Goal denied by Fofana! (0-0)

Corner for ASM on the left. Diatta volleyed from outside the area, his blocked shot reached Fofana who immediately took control of points. But the Monegasque environment was logically marked as offside.

What a rescue from Nübel!! (0-0)

What a wonderful intervention from Nübel, who slept for a thousand an hour in this recovery a few meters from Dante’s goal!! The Nice defender misses the far post in a set attack.

High level of defense

If this derby is slow to release, it is worth noting the good work of the two individual defenses, rarely getting caught. Dante-Todibo-Viti and Sarr-Badiashile-Disasi triplets work well.

Diatta hits wide

Little feast of the whirling Monegasque who had fun with Viti on the right and found himself in a surprising position. His brutal attempt from the left went a few meters to the side.

Change for the people of Nice

To loud applause, Beka Beka replaced Ramsey in the middle. A sector that has therefore completely changed.

Viti with mastery

Excellent defensive intervention from young Viti, one of the Gym’s recruits. The Italian defender was quick with his support in front of his face to dislodge Diatta who attacked him.

Post for Monaco… and offside

Golovin impressed with his technical quality in the opposite area and broke the post with a shot on the ground. The Russian was still offside at the start of the action.

Yellow card for Rosario

Bad intervention from the newcomer, who grabbed Fofana’s shorts and knocked him down. The card was dealt for this anti-game action.

Excellent start to the Gym

The Niçois put a lot of pressure on the Monegasques from the resumption. ASM struggled to get out of an opponent’s offensive that went from one corner of its face to another.

We are here again at the Allianz Riviera! (0-0)

A change that was noticed at the break, Thuram gave Rosario in the middle. Maybe a physical error? We also expect Ben Yedder to come on in the second half.

That’s the rest of this derby! (0-0)

The Allianz Riviera is boiling but this derby, brutally, takes time to hit the ground running. The Monegasques had their hands on the ball but dominated a little poorly, only Alexander Golovine showed himself dangerous (41st). Niçois got some situations (13th, 29th), but lost the battle in the middle for now. Youcef Atal was injured after half an hour.

More time

Three additional minutes were announced by the fourth referee.

The Head of Dante

Niçoi was located high up the pitch and made the most of it. Thuram’s cross was deflected by Pépé’s header, which benefited Dante at the far post. The defender lands a head kick that lands directly on Nübel.

Bard slowly got up

Great aerial duel between Diatta and Bard, who is off balance at the end of his jump on his opponent and falls hard. Niçois struggled to recover.

Golovin opens his foot wide! (0-0)

What a great opportunity for Monegasques! Launched by a subtle and well-felt deflection from Embolo, Golovine dived over and opened his right foot. A little too much, it goes next to the post!

Yellow card for Camara

The Monegasque environment was authorized by the referee, he who came, like most of his colleagues, to contest an arbitration decision.

Monegasques don’t fit

Monaco continued to press and nibble on space in the opposing half. In a set attack, Badiashile saw his shot blocked, before Golovin sent a half volley into the air.

A hard blow for the people of Nice and Atal, who left

The Algerian piston could not go any further. He left, replaced by the versatile Lotomba.

The (new) tile for Atal

Accustomed to physical glitches, Atal stayed on the ground along the sideline. The piston asked to change after acceleration, which stopped.

Big volley from Grandpa! (0-0)

Suffice it to say we didn’t see Grandpa for the former Gunner to stand up! Served by an intelligent delivery from Delort in the area, the Ivorian did not ask and fired a powerful volley that Nübel caught in two stages thanks to his good position!


The record of confrontations (9) between Nice and Monaco in the Allianz Riviera in Ligue 1 is perfectly balanced: 4 successes each, while the most recent one ended in a draw (2-2 in September 2021).

Monaco is getting stronger

Niçois abused long balls, and struggled to settle in the opposition half or find Pépé in particular. The Monegasques lead this meeting, but it must be dangerous now for Schmeichel.

Fofana and Ramsey were not released

There was a big physical battle between Fofana and Ramsey for a few minutes. Both men seek and measure each other, the Monegasque at the limit of his new muscular intervention with the Welshman.

Dante in the right place

Excellent intervention from the Brazilian central defender, who pulled from the top of his mop of hair a very dangerous cross from the left. Embolo was late.

Affects the Camera

The Monegasques were getting braver by the minute, and started to win the half battle. Camara is precious at the heart of the game.

The gentle referee with Fofana

Small order call from referee Fofana, who voluntarily came on to prevent Ramsey from easily taking a free kick. Next time it’s yellow.

The first fireworks from Nice! (0-0)

Good projection of Eagles with a lot of work from Laborde moving towards the axis. He saw Atal fall to the right and served it. The piston unleashes a heavy uncontrolled strike that Nübel gets in two stages!

Thuram is good at reading

Badiashile tried to break the lines with a low ground pass towards his attackers, but Thuram read the pass and recovered in the middle.

it’s a derby atmosphere

The players and supporters are quite excited. Contacts are plentiful and straightforward, motivation is bubbling for the Niçois, who leave the ball a little more to the Monegasques today.

Nübel is not shy

A slightly dangerous exit from Nübel, who goes to find Delort outside the face and forces him to move to the center. Laborde’s surrender of the head will not benefit a Niçois afterwards.

Les Aiglons took matters into their own hands

Under the explosions of many pyrotechnic devices, we found Nice who had the ball since the start of the match, and who wanted to project themselves immediately in front.

Let’s go to the Allianz Riviera! (0-0)

The Monegasques started this final match on the 6th day of Ligue 1!

Kick-off is almost here!

The players entered the pitch of a boiling Allianz Riviera, accompanied by the referee of the meeting, Benoît Millot.

And a surprise presentation of a new recruit from Nice!

It was Ross Barkley, left free by Chelsea, who officially joined the Aiglons. The English international was recently introduced to the Allianz Riviera.

ASM should fly

Monaco, for its part, remained in a surprise defeat against Troyes, at home. Philippe Clement’s players have not won L1 since day one.

Eagles finally launched?

Nice finally found the colors by winning, last Wednesday, on the LOSC lawn (1-2). After this first success of the season, Lucien Favre’s Eagles want to continue this derby smell of powder.

The Monegasque eleven

Surprise, Wissam Ben Yedder on the bench. Breel Embolo is the starter, surrounded by Alexandre Golovine and Krépin Diatta.

The composition of Nice with the holder of Laborde

Reformation of the Laborde-Delort duo, this time in Nice. Nicolas Pépé joined them at the front. Aaron Ramsey and Khéphren Thuram lined up in the middle.

A derby of the misclassified

Nice and Monaco, two ambitious people with a complicated start to the season. Because tonight, the 14th will face the 16th.

The people have arrived in Nice

With the latest recruit from Rennes, Gaëtan Laborde.
