Angers vs Marseille Preview and Predictions

Angers vs Marseille French Ligue 1 Predictions 29th April 2018

Angers vs Marseille
France- Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 29th April 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers)

Angers are safe and they are playing like it, a holiday mode type of football that has seen no wins in the last 3 games. On Sunday they will face Marseille and the Stade Raymond Kopa will be sure to be a sell-out.

Angers have 37 points and are 8 points clear of the bottom three and whilst the club would like another win to feel comfortable it seems impossible that their Ligue 1 status would be under threat with the current conditions of the placing.

At home Angers have the 5th to worst record and have drawn their last two matches here. From 17 games they have only won 5 all season.

Marseille are having a very interesting season as the only French club left in European competition. They got a terrific 2-0 win at home to Red Bull Salzburg in the 1st leg of the Europa League semi-finals. They are also chasing a Champions League place and are in 3rd place on 69 points but on the same points as 2nd place Lyon so there is all to play for here.

Angers vs Marseille: Head to Head

  • Angers have not beaten Marseille for 3 years
  • The last time the teams played here the match finished 1-1
  • 3 of the last 4 meetings have seen under 2.5 goals

Angers vs Marseille: Prediction

Marseille have found it hard to come to Angers in the past and get a result. The club will be fully focused on reaching the Europa League final and for this we will side with Angers to get a surprise result but we will back the home side on the handicap.
