Match Preview
A Monaco side without a win in five games hosts an Angers team unbeaten in three straight matches against the current top six in Ligue 1 (L1), but have lost four straight H2Hs against Monaco.
The hosts are winless at home this campaign (D2, L1), a stark contrast to how they ended last season where they won six of their last seven in front of their own fans. Home fans might be happy to face Angers in this encounter however – Monaco have won the last three L1 H2Hs here.
Two of those H2H wins were to nil, something Monaco dearly needs – they’ve now let in six goals from their last three home matches, and have averaged 1.75 goals conceded per fixture this campaign (in all competitions).
Just three L1 teams have had as good, or a better return, from their last three matches as Angers (W2, D1). That turnaround was needed, as they had recorded just one win in ten league games previously (W1, D3, L6).
Although they have won just three of their last ten away league fixtures, Angers can be relied upon for entertainment, with both teams scoring in seven of those matches.
Players to watch: Radamel Falcao has three goals in six games for Monaco, and looks good to match last season’s tally of 18. Defender Ismaël Traoré, remarkably, is Angers’ top scorer this season with two goals.
Stat attack: Both Monaco and Angers have been drawing at half-time in five of their respective six L1 games so far.
There’s been 24 yellow cards shown in the last six H2Hs – four on average per game. Monaco have also scored the last goal in five of those encounters.
The last six H2Hs have also seen close to 50% of goals scored in the first-half – however in Monaco’s L1 matches this season, 81% have come in the second-half.
