Angers vs Bordeaux
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 10th August 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa.
Angers have only spent 5m in players with most coming through on loans, and their big money departure was Flavien Tait who was sold to Rennes for 9million. With the transfers that have come in it seems that Angers will just be happy to finish in mid table and not get relegated but they could be involved in a struggle yet again.
As for Bordeaux they have recently shored up their defence by buying Arsenal’s want away player Laurent Koscielny for 5m. But the question has to be will he be a good replacement for the excellent Jules Kounde who has joined Sevilla for a cool 25m.
Like Angers so far in the market nothing suggests that either team will make their mark on Ligue 1 but it is early and anything could change in that time.

Angers vs Bordeaux: Prediction
We will back Angers to get the win here but it is best to go with minimal stakes. The reason is simple, it is the beginning of the season and it is unsure which team will perform, it is always difficult to know what can and cannot happen at this stage of the season.
But if Angers can repeat some of their solid home form which they have been known for and Bordeaux do not always travel so well then this could well be a 3 pointer for the home side.
Expect a close tight game with few goals and not many chances. But as it goes on both teams will be looking for the win, but at home Angers should just about have more quality to get the victory.
Angers vs Bordeaux: Bet Tip
Angers to beat Bordeaux at 2.25 (5/4).
