Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Stade Raymond-Kopa will host Wednesday’s football game between Angers and Monaco, the two top-table sides. Les Scoistes are undefeated in the previous three league fixtures, with the team producing a fine display in a 2-2 draw with Lens at the weekend. All Bilal Brahimi, Paul Bernardoni, Abdoulaye Bamba, and Zinedine Ould Khaled are sidelined with injuries for the home team.
Les Rouges et Blancs, on the other hand, dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Strasbourg, with the team extending their winless run to four games. Monaco aim to move closer to the Champions League berth, and seeing that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in the midweek clash, both teams to score betting option should be considered. The likes of Benoit Badiashile, Krepin Diatta, and Cesc Fabregas miss out through injuries for the visiting team. In their last meeting in the Ligue 1 Monaco defeated Angers thanks to Wissam Ben Yedder’s goal.
