Angers vs Nantes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 14th February 2021
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers).
This match is known as a local derby and with Nantes now in the bottom three Angers would love to help them to be relegated so we should see a very tasty game with lots of action.
Angers come into this encounter in 8th place and have probably surprised themselves by how good they have been compared to last season. However recent form has been poor with just 4 points won from their last 15 and one win.
Last weekend Angers lost their 10th game of the season against Nice and at home they are a very inconsistent side who have won 5 games but also lost 5.
Nantes should be worried as their poor form had them clinging onto 17th but because Lorient have stepped up and won games Nantes are now in 18th and could be relegated.
Nantes have won just 3 games and earned 5 points from their last 30 so they look like relegation material. Last weekend they lost 2-0 against Lille though that would have been expected.
Angers vs Nantes: Head to Head
- Last season Angers won this fixture 2-0.
- It’s been six league games since Nantes beat Angers going back to 2018.
- The last seven league games in a row have ended in under 2.5 goals.
Angers vs Nantes: Prediction
Angers will start as the favourites and rightly so. If we look at Nantes away form they have the 2nd to worse in the league with just one victory so far and they are almost conceding 2 goals per game.
This is a fixture which should end in a home win or a draw and Nantes really look like they have little chance to get something here. The team are very low on confidence.
It is a risk because this is a derby so the game could be more closer than we expect but we will back the home side to win by the odd goal.
