Angers vs Marseille
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 2nd October
Kick-Off at 14:00 BST
Venue: Stade Jean Bouin (Angers).
Angers three game winning run was stopped by Monaco last weekend when they went down 2-1. Angers looked like they would hold on for a win when they took the lead but Monaco finally took over towards the end of the game.
At home Angers have won 2 and lost one but that does include winning their last two home games against Dijon and Caen. It’s interesting to note that in all three home games Angers have conceded goals.
Marseille are in 13th place and a position below Angers on 8 points. L’OM simply can’t get any consistency to their season and it is clearly hampering the club from the south.
After beating Nantes 2-1, Marseille will be looking for another three points but their away form is amongst the worst in the league where they have lost all three matches so far on the road. They have conceded 8 goals in those three matches.
Angers vs Marseille: Head to Head Stats
Recently these two have only met 3 times and the results have been interesting. For example this fixture ended 1-0 to Marseille last season and yet in the two games played at Marseille, Angers have won both times.
Angers vs Marseille: Prediction
The fixtures are not getting any easier for Marseille and it’s difficult to see them getting something here. Angers are not spectacular but they do raise their game against the so called bigger teams.
Clinton N’Jie on loan from Tottenham Hotspur scored his first goal for Marseille last weekend and he could be worth keeping an eye on to score another in this game.
