Angers vs Dijon
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 2nd February 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers).
Angers come into this game with just 1 win in their past four matches and have really been struggling lately to get a good run together. They have had some key injuries but the squad should have been able to adapt and the club are in 15th place.
Angers last game finished in a 0-0 draw away to Toulouse in a forgettable game of football. At home the club have a less than 30% win rate which is no good and usually spells relegation. Currently though they have a six point cushion and a win here would make the club feel very safe.
This is a huge game for Dijon who are one place under Angers but 4 points adrift of them. This match represents the side having that chance to keep up to pace with Angers or fall right behind, and they are just 2 points from the relegation zone.
Dijon’s recent away form is extremely poor where they have lost 3 games in a row coming into this game and they have won just 2 games all season.

Angers vs Dijon: Prediction
Dijon have been very poor away from home and they have a bad history against Angers, so we will opt for a close home win. Angers just need to find some consistency and they can easily be a top 10 side.
This is a great opportunity for them to escape the clutches of the bottom three and be a side not just trying to survive in Ligue 1 but also to spread their wings and start to enjoy themselves.
This game will tell us a lot about their ambitions for this season and indeed the rest of the year.
