Angers vs Reims
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 1st February 2020
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa.
Angers are still very much in with a chance of securing a European finish but too many draws have seen the club stagnate somewhat and they need to go on a winning run, could it start this weekend?
The home side are in 9th place with 30 points but just 3 points behind 4th place so not all hope is lost. Angers last result ended in a respectable 0-0 draw against away to Marseille.
At home, the club have the 5th best record in the league and have won 60% of their matches here only losing two. Though because of draws they have gone their last 3 games without a win at Stade Raymond Kopa.
Reims are in 11th but just a point behind Angers. They were poor last weekend when they lost 1-0 to Metz at home and the problem with Reims is that they have recently been knocked out of the Coupe de la Ligue at the semi-finals and this has really been a sucker punch for the club.
They have not won a game in 4 with their last victory coming against bottom club Toulouse in mid-December.
Angers vs Reims: Head to Head
- The last 3 meetings have ended in draws.
- There is an 80% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
- Reims have not won at Angers since 2011.
Angers vs Reims: Prediction
Reims have a good team maybe better than Angers, but the club just keep underperforming when it matters and sadly there doesn’t seem to be many goals in this team.
Reims have won 14 points on the road from a possible 30 and have won just once in their last five trips. Plus, they don’t have a good record at this ground, everything seems to point for a narrow home victory here and we will also choose a goalscorer for Angers.
Under 2.5 goals does look likely but the price is quite low around 1.44 and may for this game not offer the best value.
