Angers vs Marseille
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 22nd December 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers).
Angers have not lost a game in Ligue 1 since the beginning of November and are currently unbeaten in their last 4 games and yet they are in 14th place coming into this game. One of the reasons is that they have drawn their last 3 matches in a row.
They will play their final game of the year at home against one of the heavyweight teams in Marseille on Saturday evening.
Almost 70% of their total points have come at home but they have only won two times at Stade Raymond Kopa in 8 attempts. The good news for them is recent home form is good which includes a win over Montpellier and they have lost just 1 game here in the past 4 matches.
Marseille’s objective this season is to finish in a European place and they are currently in 6th position. They lost their last game 3-2 away to Nantes and that stopped a 3 game unbeaten streak.
Marseille have been very erratic on the road winning one week but losing the next and they have not drawn any games away from home this season. Their biggest problem has been shipping too many goals and they have the worst record for doing so away from home in the league with 19 so far, that’s over 2 goals a game.
Angers vs Marseille: Head to Head
- The last time the teams played here the match finished 1-1.
- 3 from the last 4 meetings have finished in draws.
- Angers have not beaten Marseille in any competition since 2015.
Angers vs Marseille: Prediction
The betting in this game is wide open and Marseille can be backed at a good price, but there is a reason for that which is going to play Angers away is extremely tricky. We don’t want to put our full trust in the home side but we will back them to win on the double chance.
Marseille have the better team but Angers have a very good solid form at the moment in the league, whilst the away team are too inconsistent.
