Angers vs Caen
French Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 21st September 2016
Kick Off: 18:00 BST
Venue: Stade Jean-Bouin (Angers).
After a terrible start to the Ligue 1 campaign that saw Angers lose their first three games the club have bounced back by winning two games back to back. Beating Dijon at home was not a major surprise but beating the inform Bordeaux in their back yard was. It’s interesting to see that Angers are scoring goals too, 4 in their last two games compared with none in their first three.
Caen has to recover from being whitewashed 6-0 by PSG in front of their home fans. That loss meant that Caen had lost two games on a row and they have conceded 8 goals and scored none in their last two games.
Caen have played two away games so far against Rennes and Lyon respectively and lost by the same score line of 2-0.
Angers vs Caen: Head-to-Head Statistics
Last season Angers eased to a 2-0 win in this fixture, from the past 10 games half have ended in draws. Angers win last season was their first victory over Caen at the Stade Jean-Bouin in the modern era. Only one game from the past 7 has seen three goals or more.
Angers vs Caen: Prediction
Angers are the form team from the two clubs and should be the favourites to win this game. Caen with 12 goals conceded has let in the most in Ligue 1. But even if we take the six goals that they shipped over PSG they have still conceded at least 2 goals per game. One team is scoring and one isn’t and quite honestly it would be a surprise for Angers not to win this match.
