Angers vs Monaco
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 10th February 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers).
As the French say “oh la la” this is going to be a difficult fixture for Angers who really need the points. The club has improved on their form but they don’t seem able to escape the danger zone. Form is better but they are still losing games and are in 16th place, only goal difference is stopping them from being in the bottom three.
At home Angers has the 2nd to worst record in the league gaining 13 points from 33. However they are unbeaten here in their last 4 games and have won the last 3 in a row. But apart from perhaps Montpellier they have faced in that time lesser quality opposition.
Monaco won in the Coupe de France in midweek another classic over Lyon and should be in good confidence. However the trip will be a long distance and even if they do come by plane the weather in France right now is not good. This can all play its part on the physical effects of the players.
Monaco has not lost a game since the end of November when Nantes beat them and the team remains very solid and a classy outfit even if they won’t win the league this season. One telling stat is that they have only won 1 game from their last 4 trips.
