Angers vs Monaco
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 2nd March 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers).
A few weeks ago, Angers would have been the favourites to win this game, but Monaco have found some form under returning coach Leonardo Jardim and this should make for an intriguing game of football at the weekend.
Angers are 13 points clear of the bottom three and will be safe this season. But they did suffer a surprise loss in their last game when Guingamp who are bottom beat them 1-0.
However, before that game Angers had won 3 games in a row and at home the club they have lost just 1 game in the past 3 months which includes winning their last 3 in a row.
Monaco have really been much improved under Jardim and have won 3 of their last 4 games. In the last two matches they beat Nantes and Lyon which would have been unthinkable a month ago. Monaco have gone 5 points clear of the bottom three and look much more solid now to survive in Ligue 1.
Although Monaco still have a problem with their away record where even under Jardim they have failed to win. Their last away win came back in December and their last away match ended in a 2-2 draw with Montpellier.
Angers vs Monaco: Head to Head
Earlier this season in the reverse match Angers won 1-0.
Last season this game ended 4-0 to Monaco.
There is a 60% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Angers vs Monaco: Prediction
This match has the potential to be a very entertaining game. On one hand Angers will want to bounce back after their silly defeat to Guingamp. They remain dangerous because really at this stage of the season with the points they have they have very little to lose. Monaco need 2-3 more wins to feel safe, form is good but their away record remains poor. We expect to see quite a few goals in this match, and we think it has the potential to be very exciting.
