Angers vs Nimes
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 11th August 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers).
Angers will be the easy favourites to win this game and they are also good value too as no one will be quite sure what version of Angers turn up to this game.
Nimes are the new comers to the league and would love to make an impact in this game.
For the home side they have recruited some youth players to play in the first team and want to promote from within which has gone down well with the fans.
Current manager Stephane Moulin has been with the club since 2011 and knows them inside out as Angers will try to spring a surprise this season and have a deep run perhaps in one of the cup competitions. However the team have had a poor preseason ahead of Ligue 1.
For Nimes this season is simply about not returning to Ligue 2 and survival at any costs, and they will realise that the bulk of their points will be expected to come at home.

- The last time the teams met here the match finished 0-0.

Angers vs Nimes: Prediction
Being the first game of the season with no form at all to show this is not an easy game to predict. However we will take the risk on the away team with a handicap start.
Nimes have had a more fruitful preseason than Angers, although we can’t tell at this stage if that has damaged the home club, but Nimes have little to lose here and hopefully will create some chances up front and give Angers a difficult time.
