Angers vs Nice
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 11th January 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa.
Angers will welcome Nice and with just a point between them all friendly smiles and handshakes will stop when the whistle goes.
The hosts are in 8th place with 28 points and have had a fantastic season compared to the last where relegation threatened them. They won their last game beating Nantes in the derby match 2-1 away from home, which was an added bonus.
The home side had a poor few weeks in November and December but have bounced back and are undefeated in their last two games. At home though they have no wins in their last two with their last result ending in a 0-0 draw against Monaco.
Nice are a point behind and form has been good with no defeats in their last 3 games and just one in their last six. Nice easily beat bottom club Toulouse 3-0 in their last game and one wonders if confidence has now returned to the club?
On the road Nice have been poor though with 6 defeats from their last 9 games. They lost 4 games in a row and only a draw against Brest a few weeks before Christmas ended that.
Angers vs Nice: Head to Head
- Last season Angers won this fixture 3-0.
- Nice have only won 1 game away to Angers in the last 5 matches.
- There is a 60% chance to see both teams to score.
Angers vs Nice: Prediction
Angers keep having very good and then very bad spells and it could be that they are at the beginning of a good one. They also have a very good record over Nice and to make matters worse for the visitors, have a very poor away record, all of this adds up for us that we will see a home win.
We will also back Angers Rachid Alioui to score anytime. He has shown some good form and has looked really sharp lately, the fact that Angers are also at home could fire him up and we think he is worth selecting.
Angers vs Nice: Bet Tips:
Angers to beat Nice at 2.00 (1/1)
Anytime goalscorer: Rachid Alioui (Angers) at 2.75 (7/4).
