Angers Prediction

Angers come into this clash having lost just once in their last seven league matches in Ligue 1 which came last time out in a 2-1 defeat at home to mid-table Bordeaux, but the hosts have made themselves an extremely hard outfit to beat these days.

Aside from the defeat to Bordeaux, the hosts have drawn five and won once with stalemates against Nantes (away) along with Caen, Nice, Marseille and Amiens as well as capturing a valuable three points with a notable 1-0 home win over 6th placed Montpellier.

It’s this latter result which started Angers’ solid run of results and it shows they’re certainly no pushovers on home turf where they hold a record of 2-4-4 11/13 which, although includes recent losses to Lyon and Bordeaux, they’ve drawn twice and beaten Montpellier in their last five home matches.

Forward Bahoken (5 goals) looks the most likely to score for the hosts here.

 

Key-Facts – Angers v Nantes

  • Angers have lost just once in their last 7 matches in Ligue 1
  • Nantes have lost 3 of their last 4 matches in Ligue 1
  • Nantes have lost their last 3 away matches on the trot

 

Nantes Prediction

Nantes sit one league position and three points above their hosts but they come into this important encounter having lost three of their last four matches overall in Ligue 1 with recent defeats to PSG, Rennes and Nimes.

To make matters worse, all three of these losses were to nil as Nantes were unable to find the back of the net, while their recent form on their travels have seen Nantes lose their last three away matches on the trot with losses at Saint-Etienne, PSG and Nimes, losing 3-0, 1-0 and 1-0 respectively.

Nantes possess a fairly ordinary looking away record of 2-2-6 8/17 and their main problem on their travels this season has been a lack of goals as the visitors have failed to score in 5 of their 10 away matches to date, and this could hold them back again at Angers on Sunday afternoon.

Betting Tips Verdict

Angers have put together a pretty solid sequence of results in recent weeks and have been hard to beat. Nantes have struggled to find their way to goal away from home, so the hosts should just about shade this one.
