Angers vs Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 5th November 2016,
Kick Off at 19:00 UK.
Venue: Stade Jean-Bouin, Paris.
If one club feels like a lucky dip in Ligue 1, then it’s Angers who have thrown many a punter off this season. One week looking good and the next average, the next superb and then playing like a Ligue 2 team. It is quite hard to anticipate what to expect from this team from the West.
Currently they are in 11th place and have just 1 win in their past five games though there are two draws also to consider. At home Angers has been strong with just one defeat all season and most encouragingly they are unbeaten now for 4 games.
Lille are four points behind Angers in 17th place they are currently on a win-loss-win formula, showing no consistency at all. They have failed to win yet away from home and their form is appalling. On the road with five matches played and 4 losses and one draw. This includes 3 straight losses.
Angers vs Lille: Head to Head Stats
There is literally no history between these two except for two games where Angers won here 2-0 and drew 0-0 away. Both games were from last season; therefore with these two matches we can at least conclude that fewer than 3 goals have a 100% record. It’s interesting to note that when Angers won 2-0 both goals were scored in the first half.
Angers vs Lille: Prediction
Angers are at a good price to be winning this fixture at half time. They are a club who are very unpredictable and it is not worth staking serious money on them. So it is better to find some value instead.
This could be a game to forget as both clubs will fight out a duel in midfield. Expect little excitement in what will be a freezing night to watch football.
