Angers vs Nancy
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 18th February 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Jean Bouin, Angers.
Angers have only lost 1 game in their past four matches but they are still swimming too close to the relegation zone and a win here would be hugely welcomed. Currently they are just two points from the bottom three but they are on a two-match unbeaten streak.
A draw against Rennes and a 2-1 win away to Lille has seen the club pick up four points from the last six and at home they have lost just once in their past five matches. They have lost 25% of their games at home and won 40%.
Nancy has won just one game in their past four matches including losing two on the bounce recently. In losing to both Montpellier and Lyon the club shipped 7 goals without reply, and though Angers is a trip more on their level it is still an away match. Nancy have lost 5 games on the road this season and won just two. Their last away win was a 2-0 result over Nantes.
Angers vs Nancy: Head to Head Stats

Angers vs Nancy: Prediction
Everything points to a home win or at least some points for the home team. Angers have a great record over Nancy and are in the better form. The handicap and double chance on Angers brings us into 1/4 on territory which offers very little value. Instead we will put our money on the line and go for a home victory.
