LIVE - Nice-Monaco: The Monegasques are no longer far from affording the derby

Plunger is on the ground

The scorer of the game stays on the ground and asks for the intervention of the coaches, slightly touched. He should be able to finish the game.

nice can’t do it

We no longer see the Aiglons actually approaching the surface of Nübel. The last changes have not contributed much, Diop or Beka Beka do not provide the necessary binder to the discreet Delort-Laborde double ahead.


Monaco have not lost any of their last 7 trips to Ligue 1 (5 wins, 2 draws), the current best series with Paris and the longest series for ASM in the top flight since December 2017-April 2018 (7 also ).

Double change for Nice

Diop finds his former teammates, while Bryan starts first with the Gym. Bard and Grandfather exit.

It is urgent for the Aiglons

The people of Nice must wake up, the Monegasques really have their hands in the game now. Rosario has been pretty non-existent in the debates since she came into the break, Nice losing in the exchange against Thuram.


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


He only needed one in Monaco to open the scoring!!! While ASM was still without a shot on goal, Embolo catapulted a superb cross from Caio Henrique with a header from close range, the Monegasques found the foul!!

The VAR does not change anything

Finally, Bard’s hand is not sanctioned since Fofana’s offside is well validated. The game resumes.

Change for Monaco… and the VAR

Aguilar leaves, replaced by Vanderson. Meanwhile, video refereeing returns to the previous action… Bard’s hand can be called, but inside or outside the area?

Goal denied to Fofana! (0-0)

Corner for ASM on the left. Diatta shoots with a volley from outside the area, her covered shot reaches Fofana who controls and scores. But the Monegasque environment is logically marked offside.

What a rescue from Nübel!! (0-0)

What a fantastic intervention by Nübel, who goes to bed at a thousand an hour in this recovery a few meters from Dante’s goal!! The Nice defender had forgotten at the far post in a placed attack.

high level defenses

If this derby takes time to open, it is worth noting the good work of the two respective defenses, rarely caught out. The Dante-Todibo-Viti and Sarr-Badiashile-Disasi triplets work well.

Diatta bangs wide open

Small party of the Monegasque whirlwind having fun with Viti on the right and found himself in a striking position. His violent attempt from the left passes a few meters away.

Change for the people of Nice

To loud applause, Beka Beka replaces Ramsey in the middle. A sector that, therefore, has been completely renewed.

Viti masterfully

Very good defensive intervention by young Viti, one of the signings of the Gym. The Italian defender rushes to support him in front of the surface to repel Diatta who was attacking him.

Monaco post… and offside

Golovin had admired his technical quality in the opposite box and had smashed the post with a shot to the ground. Regardless, the Russian was offside at the start of the action.

Yellow card for Rosario

Bad intervention of the newcomer, who grabs Fofana’s pants and knocks him down. Card distributed for this antiplay action.

Very good start to the gym

The Niçois have been putting a lot of pressure on the Monegasques since the restart. ASM struggles to get out of a counter offensive that goes from one end of its surface to the other.

Here we go again at the Allianz Riviera! (0-0)

A change to notice at the break, Thuram gave way to Rosario in the middle. Perhaps a physical failure? We also expect Ben Yedder, who should come in the second half.

It’s the break in this derby! (0-0)

The Allianz Riviera is boiling but this rugged derby was slow to start on the ground. The Monegasques have their hands on the ball but they dominate with too much sterility, only Alexander Golovine is dangerous (41st). The Niçois have obtained some situations (13, 29), but for now they lose the battle in the middle. Youcef Atal was injured after half an hour.

Extra time

Three additional minutes are announced by the fourth official.

Dante’s Headbutt

The Niçois position themselves high on the pitch and take advantage of it. Thuram’s center is deflected with a header from Pépé, which benefits Dante at the far post. The defender places a header that goes straight to Nübel.

Bard is slow to get up

Great aerial duel between Diatta and Bard, who is knocked off balance at the top of his jump by his opponent and lands hard. The niçois is struggling to recover.

Golovin spreads his foot too wide! (0-0)

What an opportunity for the Monegasques! Launched by a subtle and well-felt deflection from Embolo, Golovine sinks to the surface and opens his right foot. A little too much, he goes right past the post!

Yellow card for Camara

The Monegasque half is sanctioned by the referee, he who had come, like many of his teammates, to challenge an arbitration decision.

Monegasques do not fit

Monaco continues to press and nibble away at spaces in the opposite field. On a set attack, Badiashile sees his shot blocked, before Golovin sends a half volley through the air.

Hard blow for the people of Nice and Atal, who are leaving

The Algerian piston will not be able to continue. He leaves, replaced by the versatile Lotomba.

The (new) tile for Atal

Accustomed to physical failures, Atal remains on the ground next to the touchline. The piston requested the change after accelerating, coming to a standstill.

Grandpa’s Big Volley! (0-0)

Suffice it to say that we didn’t see Grandpa for the former Gunner to stand out! Served by Delort’s deft delivery into the box, the Ivorian asked no questions and fired a hard-hitting volley that Nübel caught in two beats thanks to his good positioning.


The history of meetings (9) between Nice and Monaco at 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 gaining momentum

The Niçois abuse long balls, and struggle to settle in the opposite field or to find Pépé in particular. The Monegasques took the lead in this match, but now they must be dangerous for Schmeichel.

Fofana and Ramsey don’t let go

There has been a great physical duel between Fofana and Ramsey for a few minutes. The two men seek and measure each other, the Monegasque is at the limit in his new muscular intervention on the Welshman.

dante in the right place

A very good performance by the Brazilian central defender, who draws a very dangerous cross from the left from the top of his hair. Plunger stayed behind.

camera impacting

The Monegasques get bolder with the minutes and start to win in the middle of the battle. Camera is valuable at the heart of the game.

The lenient referee with Fofana

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

The first firecracker is from Nice! (0-0)

Good projection of the Aiglons with a lot of work from Laborde who transplants towards the axis. He sees Atal’s takedown from the right and serves it. The piston unleashes a loud uncontrolled thump that Nübel captures in two stages!

Thuram is good at reading

Badiashile tries to break lines with a low ground pass towards his attackers, but Thuram reads the trajectory well and recovers in the middle.

It’s derby atmosphere

Players and fans alike are quite excited. The contacts are numerous and frank, the mood boils for the Niçois, who leave the ball a little more to the Monegasques now.

Nübel is not shy

A somewhat risky exit from Nübel, who goes to look for Delort outside the surface and forces him to move away to the center then. The delivery of Laborde’s head does not benefit a niçois afterwards.

Les Aiglons take matters into their own hands

Under the explosions of various pyrotechnic devices, we find Nice in possession of the ball from the start of the game, and looking to quickly project themselves to the front.

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

It was the Monegasques who kicked off this closing match of matchday 6 of Ligue 1!

Kick-off is imminent!

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

And a surprise with the introduction of a new recruit from Nice!

It was Ross Barkley, released by Chelsea, who officially joined the Aiglons. The English international has just met the Allianz Riviera.

ASM must take off

Monaco, meanwhile, follow up with a surprise loss to Troyes at home. Philippe Clement’s players have not won in L1 from day one.

The Aiglons finally released?

Nice finally found colors by going to win, on Wednesday during the previous day, on the pitch of LOSC (1-2). After this first success of the season, Lucien Favre’s Aiglons will want to continue in this derby that smells like gunpowder.

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 Laborde holder

Reform of the Laborde-Delort duo, this time in Nice. Nicolás Pépé accompanies them to the front. Aaron Ramsey and Khéphren Thuram are lined up in the middle.

A misclassified derby

Nice and Monaco, two ambitious people who are having a difficult start to the season. Because tonight, it’s 14 facing 16.

Nice people have arrived

With the latest signing from Rennes, Gaëtan Laborde.
