Monaco vs Angers
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 9th January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II.
Monaco got a great win at Lorient coming away with a 5-2 victory and it was just what the club needed after having a blip in form.
Five different players scored the goals for Monaco which proves that there are goals all in this team and though they conceded 2 a trip to Lorient could have been a banana skin for them.
Monaco now have 30 points and are in sixth place. They are 9 points behind league leaders Lyon but only six behind a potential Champions League qualification. There is all to play for.
Angers are in seventh place with the same points as Monaco which makes this game very interesting. Angers are also in very good form and have won their last 2 games in a row and are unbeaten in their last three.
In midweek Angers recorded a fantastic victory as they beat Lille who are in 2nd place 2-1. It was Lille’s first defeat at home this season and has blown the league title wide open.

Monaco vs Angers Prediction
Normally Monaco would be the expected favourites and win an easy game at home. But Angers have been very solid this season and this isn’t as straight cut as it seems.
Both clubs will have respect for one another coming into this match and Angers have pulled off a fantastic feat to beat Lille in midweek. However we will side with Monaco because they are at home and they have to show all of the motivation they have as Angers could pass them in the league.
It seems a hard ask for Angers to beat both Lille and Monaco away and fatigue may set in and Monaco could take advantage of that.
