Monaco have been attacking well in recent weeks but with Nice’s incredible home record we’re going to back the away side to score under 1.5 goals as les Aiglons haven’t conceded that at the Allianz Riviera since October. Monaco have also scored under 1.5 goals in four of their last five away games so we’re backing this market to win here. We’re also going to back Nice to win 1-0 as a victory could clinch them 7th spot so they will be desperate for three points. Their last eight home victories have all been to nil so this is what we’re predicting.
Ultimately, Palmeiras look just as strong, if not stronger, than they were last year and this isn’t a match we can envisage them dropping points in. Though they are listed as the visitors in this clash, they’ll likely have more of the crowd in the neutral venue and that’s just one of the numerous factors in their favour on Saturday.
All things considered, we’re more than happy to back a Palmeiras win to nil and feel it provides excellent value at current prices. Palmeiras are stronger than Botafogo in all areas, arrive the fresher of the two and shouldn’t be given many issues in running out victors, with a 1-0 Palmeiras win appearing to be on the cards.
