Angers to keep their hopes for a top-six finish

Despite winning just two of their last 11 games, Angers still sit only three points away from European places. Certainly, closing down on the top six places is Les Scoites’ aim and Gerald Baticle’s men have a curious trend that could help. Notably, Angers are unbeaten in the last five Ligue 1 games played on a Wednesday. Moreover, they registered clean sheets in the last three.

However, with just one win across their last ten Ligue 1 home games, the Black and Whites will start as underdogs. Nevertheless, that might not be bad news as they lost just one of the four league games in which they were considered outsiders. Still, they lost eight home games this calendar year and that is one area Baticle needs to work on the most.

Monaco looking to avoid a fourth winless encounter

A run of three consecutive draws must be very frustrating for Monaco, as the Monegasque lost ground on the top six. However, the last time Monaco had three draws in a row they won their next match to nil. Markedly, the eight-time Ligue 1 champions sit two points behind their opponents and a win here could leap them up to three spots. 

To do so, coach Niko Kovac’s team must rediscover their form in the final third. To point out, the Monegasque failed to score in their last three Ligue 1 away games. And a fourth consecutive failure would mark their worst such run in over a decade. Having finished third last season, surely Monaco won’t settle for less. They need to take some risks and go for the win, however.

Angers vs Monaco Prediction

Coming into this game both Angers and Monaco have a similar winning rate which is 33%. However, the bookies are favoring Monaco to win with odds of 2.29. The reason for that is the fact that Monaco have not lost to Angers in their last five h2h games.

Moreover, looking at the total goals market, the chances of over/under 2.5 goals is 50%. Hence it is too close to call. Also, in their last four meetings, three of them saw one or fewer goals.

Considering all of the above stats and facts, we think we might see a low-scoring game for a couple of reasons. Firstly, Monaco are so good in recent games in keeping the score low with fine defending. Secondly, Angers scored one or fewer goals in four of their last five home games.

Consequently, the combo bet of double chance with under 3.5 total goals with odds of 1.72, seems a very probable outcome.
