Angers vs Bordeaux
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 14th January, 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK Time
Venue: Stade Jean-Bouin, Angers.
On form Angers are the second to worst team in Ligue 1 and they are about to face a very tricky home fixture over Bordeaux. Angers have lost 3 games in a row and have not tasted victory in the league since November.
The club has also gone over two months without a win at home and from 9 games they currently have a record of won 3, lost 3 and drawn 3. Though they are not in the bottom three yet there is a real danger that it is only a matter of time before this happens unless something changes quickly.
Bordeaux come into this fixture also in terrible form, but they have been getting some good results in the cup matches. However in the league they have amassed just 2 points from their last 15. In 10th place they have a six point advantage over their hosts. The team’s last five away games have been an oddity where they lost their last match but before then claimed 4 draws in a row. They currently have a 33% loss rate on their travels.

Angers vs Bordeaux: Prediction
Bordeaux have been in really poor form not just losing games but also conceding so many goals. However two things stand in their favour. The first is that they are playing a team who has the same form as them and the second is their recent cup victories including reaching the semi-finals of the Coupe de la Ligue. This should give an under confident team the boost they need.
