Three days after the defeat at Nice which ended their run of seven successive wins, the Red & Whites are keen to "move on to other things while staying relaxed" as Leonardo Jardim explained in his press conference. For this game, the coach will be ringing the changes: "We're going to have to rotate the squad. It's not possible to play every three days with the same eleven."

Leonardo Jardim has named twenty players in his squad for this game. Mendy returns after his right thigh injury. Bakayoko (suspended) and Falcao (rested) are both absent.
AS Monaco have won their last six home games against Angers in Ligue 1, keeping clean sheets in all six.
The Angevins are on a run of three wins on the bounce in Ligue 1, so Monaco are expecting a difficult game. Leonardo Jardim: "It will be a difficult game against a very well organised and very physical team, where the coach has done good work."
None of Angers' last nine matches in Ligue 1 has ended in a draw (6 defeats and 3 wins).
