While Monaco had been on a good roll with a 6 match unbeaten run until the PSG game last weekend, but bounced back with a strong win over Lille in the French Cup in mid-week. Monaco will rely on a lot of their forwards to continue delivering the goals in order to have them maintain their lead at the top of the table. Mbappe, Falcao, Bernardo, Germain and Bakoyoko all delivering goals at critical times to see the side progress to this level of the competition. Monaco have been in goal scoring form netting 37 goals in their last 12 games in all competitions, and will aim to continue firing this goals in tonight. Defensively Monaco haven’t been great conceding goals in 9 out of their last 10 games. 83% of all Monaco’s games have seen over 2.5 goals lands including 11 out of their last 12 games.
Angers have been going through a mixed season and have slipped into the 2nd half of the table, but will rely a lot on their home form to take them through a possible top half finish. Angers have remained undefeated in 8 straight games at home in all competitions. They have been good scoring form, netting in 7 out of their last 8 games at home. They will rely a lot on Diedhiou, Toko Ekambi and N’Doye who have been racking up the goals this season. Defensively, they have shown to be leaky conceding goals in 4 out of their last 5 games.
While Monaco have an exciting away tie against Dortmund in mid-week; they will want to take care of domestic business, as they have a great chance of winning the Ligue1 title; and I expect them to play an open game; so I am backing over 2.5 goals like it has landed in a lot of Monaco games this season.
