Angers vs Lorient
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 3rd December 2016
Kick off at 19:00 UK Time
Venue: Stade Jean-Bouin, Angers.
It’s been a pretty dismal November for Angers who have collected just 1 point in their last three games. This is a shame, given that the month had started off so well for them with a 1-0 win over Lille. This form has seen the team drop some places too 10th position but honestly the club will be quietly pleased with their overall performances so far this season.
Angers did lose their last home game going down 2-1 to St Etienne so the club will want to make up for this when they face the team at the bottom of Ligue 1- Lorient.
Lorient really has been poor this season with 10 defeats in the 15 games they have played. But lo and behold because in recent weeks their form has improved, a draw against Metz which ended 3-3 was not seen as great result. Why? Because Lorient were 3-1 up, but then this was followed up with a fighting performance over Rennes where they won 2-1. All of a sudden the team at the bottom has gone two games unbeaten and that isn’t bad at all.

Angers vs Lorient: Prediction
Benjamin Moukandjo scored two goals last time Lorient played away and he can be a danger here at good odds to score. It’s good to go against the trend sometimes and backing both teams to score makes sense to us in what should be an unpredictable but entertaining game.
