Angers vs Monaco
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 14 December 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond-Kopa (Angers).
Monaco have been performing well in recent games, but it is yet to be seen whether they will be able to replicate the form on the road. Meanwhile, Angers may have faced some stumbles in overall fixtures, but they surely have done their job well at home. By all means, we are in line for a cracking game this weekend at the Stade Raymond-Kopa.

Angers vs Monaco Prediction
Angers were on the road the last match-day, and had to lock horns with Rennes. The latter employed their home advantage well to record a 2-1 win. In the meantime, Monaco continued their good run at home with a dominating 3-0 victory over Amiens.
However, this weekend, Monaco are on the road, and they will surely be severely tested. The reason being, Monaco have a total of two wins this whole season on the road, and one of those wins had come against the dead-last placed Toulouse.
Moreover, Angers have been particular to compensate their bad run on the road with good performances in front of the home crowd. In fact, they have lost just twice in 2019-20 at this venue, and one of those defeats had come against Marseille, easily the best team in France after PSG.
Also note that Angers have won eight of their preceding twelve home fixtures, and in the process recorded wins over some of the in-form teams in Ligue 1.
Taking into account these observations, rightfully count on the hosts Angers to put forth the better performance, and at least secure a draw.
However, do note that the Monaco side have been the better team in h2h clashes for quite some time. They have won four of the last six h2h fixtures, and also recorded seven of the prior nine such wins. Also, at this venue, they delivered four of the previous five wins, and have failed to score two or more goals at this stadium just twice this last decade.
Finally, purely on the basis of overall recent form, Monaco come out as the better team. They won nine of the previous twelve overall games, while, Angers have a total of two wins from their prior six match-ups.
Considering these observations, the scope for BTTS is very high this weekend at the Stade Raymond-Kopa.
