    The fight for the European spots in Ligue One is becoming a highly intriguing one. Two teams embroiled in the top-six battle are Nice and Monaco, who face off at the Allianz Riviera on Saturday night.

    Nice may still fancy their title chances

    While the home team’s main priority for the rest of the campaign will be to seal a spot in the Champions League for next season, Nice may still fancy their chances of catching reigning champions and league leaders PSG.

    However, Francesco Farioli’s second-place team trail the club from the French capital by eight points. They are massive outsiders for the title but will look to capitalise on any PSG slip-ups.

    Nice’s recent form in Ligue One has been inconsistent, though, as they have won just two of their last five matches in the French top flight.

    However, they have won their last six Ligue One games at the Allianz Riviera while also keeping clean sheets in eight of their previous nine home games in Ligue One.

    Monaco’s form needs to improve

    The visitors are currently in fifth place in the Ligue One table, trailing their hosts by four points. However, Adi Hutter’s team is just a point adrift of the automatic Champions League spots in the French top flight.

    They could have been in a far better position in the table if it wasn’t for a recent inconsistent run of form in Ligue One, as the visitors have won just one of their previous five matches in the French top flight.

    However, Monaco has a decent recent away record in Ligue One, as they are unbeaten in their last three away games, having scored at least two goals in each outing.
