Angers v Nimes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 23rd November 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers).
Angers come into this game in 3rd place and they remain one of the biggest surprises of the season so far. Their form did dip once they went to 2nd in the league but they seem to have regained some of that mojo back and have gone their last 3 games undefeated.
Angers have 21 points and are 9 points behind leaders PSG and just 1 point behind Marseille so a win at the weekend and it is possible they can go back into 2nd position.
The home side have the 2nd best home record winning 5 games and losing just once and this will make them the favourites to win this encounter. They have only conceded 4 goals at home which is another great sign that Angers means business this season.
Nimes are bottom of the league and so on paper facing the team in 3rd place already looks like an uphill struggle. The club has won just 2 games all season and have no wins in their past five games. Nimes have a poor away record too picking up just 3 points from their last available 15 on offer.

Angers vs Nimes: Prediction
We will back Angers to win this game, but they will have a fight on their hands as traditionally Nimes do very well here no matter how poor they have been this season.
Our main bet is for the home side to win but we will also back for small stakes to see 4 or more goals. The chance of this happening is over 50% in recent meetings between the teams where there has been plenty of goals.
Angers need to win games like these if they want to finish in a European position at the end of the season.
