Angers vs Brest
French Ligue 1
Date: 21 August 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond-Kopa (Angers).
Angers and Brest will be searching for their initial wins of the season when they come across each other in Gameweek No 3 of the 2022/23 Ligue 1 campaign. The match is scheduled for Sunday afternoon at Stade Raymond-Kopa.
Angers somehow managed to snatch a point from the away clash against newly-promoted Auxerre last weekend.
It was a disappointing display in general from Gerald Baticle’s men who barely avoided a defeat despite playing almost the entire second half with an extra man on the pitch.
Angers only had two shots on target at Stade de l’Abbe Deschamps seven days ago and both resulted in goals.
This is too modest against the newly-promoted side with one of the weakest budgets in the entire top flight.
Gerald Baticle’s troops did not shine on the opening day either when they shared spoils with Nantes in a goalless draw at Stade Raymond-Kopa.
Brest began the season with a disappointing 3-2 defeat at Lens. However, they rebounded and gained some confidence by holding the likes of Marseille to a 1-1 draw seven days ago at Stade Francis-Le Ble.
Brest offered a fantastic display on the occasion, creating numerous chances and registering 17 shots, five of which went on target.
For the sake of comparison, Marseille had only five attempts, two on target, last weekend.
Angers vs Brest Head-to-head
- These two teams met each other exactly a month ago in the summer friendly when Brest celebrated a 0-2 victory.
- The outfits have 5 wins apiece in 12 head to head meetings at Stade Raymond-Kopa.
- None of the previous four head to head meetings between Angers and Brest provided three or more goals.
Angers vs Brest Prediction
Brest left a much better impression in the opening two rounds, especially last weekend when they dominated the pitch throughout majority of the clash against the likes of Marseille.
We like the 3.20 odds offered for the away win, while you can also try with Brest to keep a clean sheet at the odds of 3.75 knowing that Angers have been struggling offensively in the opening two outings.
