Angers – Monaco Match Preview
- Angers may have won just two of their last 11 Ligue 1 matches (D6, L3), but they still sit only three points away from the European places. Closing in further on those coveted spots is the aim, and Gérald Baticle’s men have a curious trend up their sleeve that could help. Angers are unbeaten in their last five top-flight games played on a Wednesday (W3, D2), and even registered a clean sheet in the previous three.
- However, with just one win across their previous ten Ligue 1 home H2Hs (D5, L4), Angers will start as underdogs here. That may not be bad news though, as they’ve lost just one of four league games they’ve started as home outsiders this campaign (W2, D1). Albeit they’ve still lost eight Ligue 1 home games this calendar year and you have to go back to 1972 to find the last year they lost more.
- Undoubtedly frustrated by a run of three consecutive draws in Ligue 1, visiting Monaco can look at recent history for inspiration. The last two times they registered three Ligue 1 draws in a row, they won their following game on the road ‘to nil’!
- The eight-time Ligue 1 champions sit two points behind Angers coming into this clash, so they would overtake their opponents and get closer to the European spots with a win here. To do so they must rediscover their form in the final third as Monaco have failed to score in their previous three Ligue 1 road trips (D1, L2) – a fourth away scoring blank would mark their longest such run in over ten years.
- Players to watch: Angers’ Sofiane Boufal has scored the opener in all four of his goalscoring league matches this campaign. Meanwhile, youngster Sofiane Diop has scored all three of his Ligue 1 strikes on the road – that’s 43% of Monaco’s away goals.
- Hot streak: Going back to 1979/80, each of the last 17 L1 H2Hs saw at least one side fail to score before HT.
