Last five H2Hs: Goals are guaranteed

The last two clashes between Monaco and Nantes have ended in draws, however, they have been far from boring. There have been 10 goals over the last two fixtures and with the shackles firmly off both sides, this encounter looks set to be a goal-fest.

Monaco preview: Chance to make a statement

Nantes preview: The season can't end soon enough

Nantes managed to pull themselves to safety when they recorded a big win against Le Havre on April 14th, but that was indeed their last victory having gone on to lose two and draw another two. This season is one to forget having previously been challenging nearer the European spots two seasons ago, and Nantes will wish to get back there next term.

Predicted lineup: Lafont (GK) – Pallios, Comert, Zeze – Cozza, Chirvella, Mollet, Sissoko, Coco – Traore, Abline

Monaco's Youssouf Fofana

Player to watch: Youssouf Fofana

With the absence of Aleksandr Golovin, Monaco's attacking players have had to share the responsibility of creating goals and chances, but no more so than Youssouf Fofana who has starred at such a young age.

Defences don't know what to expect

Fofana finds himself second in the Monaco squad when it comes to both goal and shot-creating actions so there is no better time for him to shine at home than before everyone heads off for a summer break.
