Monaco vs Angers
French Ligue 1
Date: Tuesday 4th February 2020
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II.
We’ve been here before with Monaco almost the same time last year when Thierry Henry was on a terrible run of form with the club and had to be sacked. Now it is Robert Moreno who has been unable to win a league game with the club in the 4 he has coached.
The first two could almost be forgiven as they were both against the champions PSG. But defeats to Strasbourg and then Nimes have left a bad taste in the mouth and the club have slipped down to 13th place.
Monaco have won 6 of their 11 games at home but come into this one having lost their last two in a row and have conceded 7 goals in those games. Away to Nimes at the weekend they shipped a further 3 goals and there is a real concern at the back for the club.
Angers lost 4-1 at home to Reims which was seen as a surprise result given that Reims have struggled to score goals this season. Angers are just a point in front of Monaco, so this makes this game even more interesting. Form is not good with 1 win in their last five and their results lately have been littered with draws.
Monaco vs Angers: Head to Head
- Last season Angers won this fixture 1-0.
- In the reverse fixture earlier this season the game ended 0-0.
- There is a 65% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Monaco vs Angers: Prediction
There’s a lot of pressure on Monaco here to do well. Less so on Angers who may be expected to lose being away from home. Indeed Angers away record is doesn’t read so well having lost 50% of their games and winning just two all season.
Although recent form has been better losing just one game in their past five. They could be a threat here. Though how much the 4-1 Reims loss has affected them is unsure.
What is sure is that they will face a team with little confidence in it and we really like the price being quoted on an away win on the handicap. For smaller stakes let’s back the correct score. But our main pick here is Angers on the handicap.
