Angers vs Lille
2018/19 French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 1st September 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers)
Angers come into this game having lost all of their opening three matches and so a win is really needed to get the team back on track. They lost to Nimes and Rennes before travelling to Paris to play PSG and also lost that game 3-1.
This will be their first match at home since losing to Nimes 4-3 and some boos were drawn by their fans after that result because they have just come up from Ligue 2 even if the game was exciting. Angers therefore will be under some pressure from their own fans to get a win on Saturday evening.
Lille have been very good and got off to a superb start this was underlined in their very professional performance in their last game where they swept aside Guingamp 3-0. This followed a draw against Monaco and a 3-1 win over Rennes. Lille look like a different team from last season and they are in 3rd place at this time.

Angers vs Lille: Prediction
Even though Angers have started the season poorly the bookmakers have made them the favourites to win this game and actually Lille who have been good are big odds. The only reason seems to be that Lille do have a poor record at Angers.
Having said that we can’t disregard just how good Lille have been, and though it might be slightly risky going against history that is what we will do and we will be backing the away result for medium stakes. Angers haven’t offered us any confidence so far this season to want to back them over a team such as Lille.
