Angers vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Tuesday 3rd December 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers).
Angers lost at the weekend 3-1 to Nice but lucky for them because of other results they were able to stay in 3rd place with 24 points. It did stop a five-game unbeaten run and the club will be happy to return back home.
However, 3rd placed Angers will be taking on 2nd placed Marseille in what looks like being a cracking game of football. Marseille has a 4-point lead over Angers so could really pull away with a win.
Angers home form is very good with just 1 loss all season and 6 wins from 8. They have the 2nd best record in the league and have won 19 points at home from 24 on offer.
Marseille are having their best season in almost a decade even though to be fair they had a slow start. But the club have become a solid unit and have won 4 games in a row. They are just 5 points behind PSG though have played an extra game. Away form is not as good, and the club have won just 1 from their past four games that came against Toulouse.

Angers vs Marseille: Prediction
Angers will have to be at their best to get something from this game and they could slip 7 points behind with a loss.
We will pick Marseille to get an away win which is slightly risky, but the club are in great form. They will know they will need the win if they have any chance of sticking close to PSG and claiming a Champions League spot.
This is Marseille’s cup final really and we think they can come here and try to dominate the play and the pace of the game; they certainly have the players to hurt Angers and have matured over the past 12 months. An away win for us.
