Angers vs Caen Predictions and Match Preview

Angers vs Caen
France-Ligue 1.
Date: Saturday, 01 December 2018
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond-Kopa (Angers).

Two teams at the bottom half of the table will meet each other on Saturday as Caen travels to Angers.

The home side are 14th in the league with 6 defeats and 4 wins in their 14 games. A poor defensive show saw them concede 20 goals while scoring only 18 in the process. They have a chance to go into top 10 with a win in this upcoming game.

A 5 match winless run was broken when they defeated Montpellier at home. They are fresh from a draw away from home to Nantes. Under 2.5 goals came in 4 of their recent 6 matches across all venues. Home record was poor for the hosts. A 4 match winless run in front of their home crowd ended with the win against Montpellier.  The finals core of 4 of their last 6 games at home had under 2.5 goals in total.

Caen are just above the relegation zone. With 6 defeats and 2 wins they are currently at 17th spot, with 12 points. They have drawn 6 games also pointing at their inability to defend their own goal. From 14 matches they gave away 17 goals while scoring less than a goal per match.

SMC lost 5 of their last 7 games and has no wins in that period. At present they are fresh from a loss to Monaco in a home fixture. In 5 of their last 6 games the finals score had under 2.5 goals in total.

They are also winless in last 5 matches on the road which saw them lose 4 on the trot. So in terms of away record they will suffer on Saturday.

Angers vs Caen: Prediction

Angers have gained confidence with that last win over Monaco at home. Against a team which is almost in the relegation zone, I don’t think they will lose. Since the visitors have lost 4 matches on the trot we can bet on Angers to win with 1.77 odd.

The visiting side is poor at scoring in away matches. If we look at their last 5 matches on the road, they failed to trouble the scores in 3 of those. The home defense is a bit shaky, but the visitors do not have enough firepower to break it. Thus a bet on both teams, not scoring can be placed with1.73 odd.

Angers vs Caen: Betting Tips

  • Angers to win @ 1.77 (7/9).
  • Both teams to score: No @ 1.73 (8/11).
