Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Buoyed by a thrilling 4-1 win over St Etienne, Monaco will look to climb to the Champions League berth when they host Angers to their Stade Louis II on Matchday 35. Les Rouges et Blancs look unstoppable at the moment, with the team eyeing their seventh consecutive league win. A man to watch in the home team will be Wissam Ben Yedder, who opened the scoring at the weekend, while midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni is banned for the match.
Les Scoistes, on the other hand, are four points clear of the relegation zone, but given their five-match winless run, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on Monaco, who are eyeing a top-three finish. As for the away side, teenage forward Mohamed-Ali Cho misses out through suspension, while all Boufal, Bahoken, Pereira Lage, and Cabot have been struggling with injuries of late.

On the other hand, the Chelsea midfielder recorded much better results with the Spain national team as he won the European Championship trophy in 2008 and 2012, while winning the FIFA World Cup title in 2010. Fabregas made his debut for la Roja in March, 2006.
