Angers vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 7th March 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa.
Angers come into this game in 13th place with 36 points and whilst their form dipped in the last few weeks it does seem to have picked up and they now have back to back wins. Those victories came against Montpellier and Brest in matches that both ended with the same score lines of 1-0. The club will be looking for a hat trick of wins as they take on Nantes at the weekend.
At home Angers have won 50% of their games, although have just one win in their last 5 games here and they have also scored 18 goals, so they need to score more at home to convince anyone that they can make a late challenge to finish in the top half of the table.
Nantes are in 11th place and just one point ahead of Angers. Last weekend they lost at home to Lille by 1-0 and their recent form has not been good with just 1 win in their last five games. This match is the local derby and should have a fantastic atmosphere.
Angers vs Nantes: Head to Head

- 7 from the last 9 meetings has seen under 2.5 goals.
Angers vs Nantes: Prediction
Nantes actually have the 7th best away record in the league but that doesn’t mean they have a great record as they have still lost 6 games from the 13 they have played, that’s almost 50%.
However they have won 3 away games from their last five and even though they lost their last away game to Angers they usually come here and get a result.
The derby will be played at an intense pace with the players really going for it, but we are going to back the away side to get the win, we will also opt to see a red card shown, because the game could become very physical.
