Angers vs Montpellier
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 22nd February 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers)
Angers come into this game in 14th with 30 points and they do not look like getting involved in a relegation fight. That is until you take another look at their form. The club have lost their last 4 games in a row and are actually only 4 points from the bottom three, they need to get a move on.
Last weekend they lost 1-0 at Nimes and this is arguably been the worst period of the club’s season, not the greatest time to be having such bad form. It’s been nearly 3 months since they won at home where they have lost their last two games here.
Montpellier are in 6th place and are 7 points clear of their hosts and they could put even more distance over them with a good win here. They lost their last game which was against Monaco by 1-0 and they will have to play their second game in a row away from home.
On the road the club have won just once and have lost 50% of their games. They have only been able to score 9 goals which has been a real problem for them.
Angers vs Montpellier: Head to Head
- In the league last season this game finished 1-0 to Angers.
- Montpellier have not beaten Angers away from home in the league since 2016.
- There is a 60% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Angers vs Montpellier Prediction
Both clubs do not have good form but Montpellier does have the better team. This looks like being a very close game and Angers really need the win.
Ultimately it just feels like Montpellier could not put in a great display and get away with it whilst this will feel like a pressure game for Angers- no club can afford 5 losses in a row.
Advantage is slightly with Montpellier here but with their away form being so poor, we will take the risk and opt for this match to finish all square.
