Sandwiched between two crucial games with Lyon in both the French Cup and Ligue 1, Monaco take on Anger in the league and should be fancied to grind out maximum points.
A run of four successive wins has put Monaco in title contention in Ligue 1 along with pacesetters Lille and Paris Saint-Germain, while Lyon themselves are only three points off top spot.
Therefore Monaco will not be neglecting their league duties for a shot at silverware and can be expected to put everything into this contest.
The visitors have not only been racking up the wins but they have also recorded five consecutive clean sheets in Ligue 1 and that, coupled with the fact their attacking armoury could be fatigued by the French Cup clash, points to a low-scoring win for Monaco.
Prediction:Monaco to win.
The hosts have scored an average of 1.67 goals while the visitors have scored an average of 1.34.Seven of their last ten matches between themselves have seen under 2.5goals.
Prediction:Both teams to score.
