Monaco vs Angers Predictions, Odds, and Picks
After losing in a seven-game thriller against Lille last week, Monaco needs to bounce back versus the worst team in the league.
Monaco to Win
Angers come as a perfect opponent for Monaco at this time. The hosts are winless in their last three games in all competitions, and after taking only a point against Clermont at home, then losing to Lille last week, they need to be in their best form playing against the worst team in Ligue 1. Monaco won their last five matches.
Over 2.5 Goals
Seven-goal games are relatively rare in the French league, but somehow it happened multiple times this season. Lille and Monaco played an incredible match last week with Lille winning 4-3. Not to say this will happen again between these teams. Out of their twelve matches this season, Angers had ten games with more than two goals, while Monaco is at 7-5 in favor of ‘over' matches.
Preview and information about Monaco vs Angers
Monaco aims for a comeback win
The bad run of form for Monaco started with a 4-0 trashing at Trabzonspor in the Europa League. It continued when they draw 1-1 with Clermont, and kept on with a 4-3 loss at Lille. The latter is not that surprising even though Lille is not in its best form this season. Monaco has a great record playing against Angers winning their last five matches, and managing to completely dominate those games which is something they haven't done in a while. Before their negative streak, they have five straight wins, and this is something that coach Philippe Clement wants to bring back. A winning attitude. Monaco doesn't have any injuries this time around, and that fact will allow Clement to change his rotation for two games they have this week, in the Europa League and Ligue 1 against Angers.
Monaco's possible starting 11: Nubel, Vanderson, Disasi, Badiashile, Henrique, Diatta, Matazo, Fofana, Golovin, Ben Yedder, Embolo.
Angers is still very much in the fight to remain in Ligue 1, however, their chances seem to dwindle a bit after another loss, their fourth straight. Although, it must be said that losing to Rennes at home last week was an unfortunate one because the visitors won by a penalty strike in the 93. minute. Angers only has two wins this season, one at home against Montpellier, and the other away at Nice which was their best performance of the season. The bad part of their story this season is how they perform at home. They suffered five losses, and their goal difference is at 8-16.
Angers possible starting 11: Bernardoni, Capelle, Mendy, Amadou, Hountondji, Valery, Ounahi, Bentaleb, Hunou, Boufal, Salama.
Monaco: No news to report.
Angers: Yahia Fofana, Souleyman Doumbia, Ali Kalla, Lois Diony, and Ulrick Eneme-Ella are injured.
