Angers vs Montpellier 
France – Ligue 1 
Date: Sunday, 11 September 2022 
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET 
Venue: Stade Raymond-Kopa. 

Angers are one of the worst teams in the French top flight this season and are placed 19th in a table of 20. They are on a long losing streak at present and against the rather impressive Montpelier they do not stand much chance this Sunday. 

Montpelier settled for a 13th place finish the previous season in the French league and they learned their lesson by the end of the last campaign.  

They are placed seventh in the table as of now and it is really noteworthy that only PSG scored more goals than them in the whole tournament till now. 

It also needs to be mentioned that they registered a 0-7 win away from home in their latest road trip. 

Meanwhile, Angers have a 100-percentage losing record disregarding just two draws in the competition. It also deserves to mention that they are on a long wingless stretch of performances in front of their home crowd and defense has been a major issue for them the past several months now. 

As these two teams lock horns with each other this Sunday, it is expected that Montpelier will deliver the better performance.

Angers vs Montpellier Prediction & Analysis 

Angus are on a four-game losing streak and they had scored 15 goals. They also let in two or more goals in eight of their past ten overall fixtures.  

They are on a four-fixture winless run in front of their home crowd and they let in two or more boats in three appearances in front of their home crowd. 

Montpellier won two of their past three or fixtures and they found the back of the net an impressive 10 times. Their latest road game ended in a 0-7 win against Brest. 

Considering these stats, count on Montpelier to have the upper hand this Sunday. However, their defense has not been top-notch lately and the desperate Angers should find the back of the net at least once this weekend.
