Angers vs Bordeaux
French Ligue 1
Date: 8 May 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond-Kopa.
Bordeaux will be searching for salvation points on Sunday afternoon when they travel to Stade Raymond-Kopa to take on Angers in a super-important Matchday 26 tie.
Les Girondins are in a very tough situation and have a mountain to climb to prevent the drop to Ligue 2 football next season.
They are four points behind Saint-Etienne in the relegation playoffs spot and their form does not suggest better days for David Guion’s men at all.
Bordeaux took just one point from the previous four league games. They provided yet another dismal performance seven days ago, falling 0-1 at home to Nice.
Les Girondins were completely toothless up front on the occasion, registering no more than five attempts (one of which went on target) during the 90 minutes of play at their Stade Matmut-Atlantique.
Bordeaux will face a tough task in an attempt to arrest the current slump in form here against Angers, despite their rivals’ streak of six subsequent games without a win.
Angers had a tough schedule in the last several weeks. They drew three and lost two of the previous five Ligue 1 affairs.
The losses came to the likes of champions PSG and red-hot Monaco. Gerald Baticle’s men found it tough to score goals in the last several matches.
They should have much more space to deliver up front here past the worst defense in the league. It will be very interesting to see whether they will be able to exploit the obvious holes in Bordeaux’s back line here.
Angers vs Bordeaux Head-to-head
- Bordeaux will rely on the recent tradition since they won two and drew one of the previous three meetings with Angers.
- Only one of the last four head to head affairs between the two outfits saw three or more goals scored.
- However, it is worth noting that Bordeaux have won only 3 of the previous 11 away clashes against Angers.
Angers vs Bordeaux Prediction
Bordeaux looked without any kind of idea to hurt Nice’s defense last weekend. Since Angers also played some low-scoring ties in the last several weeks, we see the Under 2.5 goals FT as the way to go here at the odds of 1.90.
We would normally back Angers in this matchup considering Bordeaux’s form but the fact that the hosts have won only 1 of the previous 14 league outings makes us sway towards the draw at the odds of 3.50.
