Monaco vs Angers
France – Ligue 1
Date: Tuesday, 25th September 2018
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).
It was another two points dropped at the weekend for Monaco as they failed to beat newly promoted Nimes at home. Nimes scored first and so Monaco ended up being relived in the end as Radamel Falcao equalised for them and the score stayed 1-1. Monaco were arguably the better side after the goal but they still look like a shadow of the team from last season.
This is due of course to the quality of players that have been sold and it has affected them for the beginning of this campaign. Monaco are in the unlikely position of 15th and have not won since the opening day of the season.
Angers were involved in a dull 0-0 result at home to Toulouse at the weekend. Although given that Toulouse have started the season so well there had to be positives taken from the game from Angers perspective that they were able to keep a clean sheet.
Angers might be in 13th place but they have gone their last 3 games unbeaten with two wins and one draw. Away form they have played 3 and lost 2, but one of those games was against PSG.
Monaco vs Angers: Head to Head
- Monaco won this fixture last season 1-0.
- Monaco have scored 6 goals in their last 3 meetings with Angers.
- Angers have not won at Stade Louis II since 2011.
Monaco vs Angers: Prediction
This is a huge game for Monaco as they have been lucky enough to have back to back games at home, the first one they could only get a point from so they will need to push on now for the win. Angers present their own problems but at least Monaco showed some fight in their last game.
Monaco are odds on favourites but still represent value being that they are at home. As a second bet with lower stakes we think that Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim will get his team to start brightly in this game and they will attack from the first whistle so we expect more goals in the first half.
