Angers vs Marseille
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 23rd December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa.
Angers have not tasted victory since they beat Lorient at the beginning of the month. The club have gone their last three games without a win although two of those have ended in draws.
Last weekend this was the case as Angers drew 1-1 in the local derby with Nantes. Angers are now in 9th place with 24 points and a win could take them up to seventh depending on other results in midweek.
Angers have lost 3 of their last four home games and that will be worrying for the club. Their last home game ended in a 2-0 defeat against Strasbourg.
Marseille dropped two points at the weekend as they could only draw with strugglers Reims at home. Marseille are in 4th place with 28 points and 5 points behind the leaders Lille but they do have 2 games extra to play on them.
The away side have not won in their last two outings and overall away form is good with 5 wins from seven games, although they lost their last away match too Rennes.

Angers vs Marseille: Prediction
The quality in the sides is evident and Marseille has the best overall chances of winning with a brilliant midfield and attack. Angers home form has been very poor lately and Marseille seem to play with more freedom away from home.
Angers also have a poor record at home to Marseille and the away side really need the three points in midweek to keep with the top 2.
There is more pressure on Marseille to win this as they have more to lose but we think they will show their qualities and we shouldn’t read too much into the draw against Reims who usually do well against them, an away win.
