Angers vs Reims
French Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 13 September 2020
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa.
Angers are in 13th place after 2 games with a win and a loss. They beat Dijon away from home 1-0 which was expected, but then they lost at home against Bordeaux 2-0 which was not expected.
Now Angers has the chance to be back at home again and they will feel under pressure even with no fans to not lose again so early on in the campaign. There was a time when Angers home form was excellent, but they struggled at times last season here, and may well do again.
Reims are in 14th and have not started well. They drew 2-2 at Monaco which looks good until you know that they were two goals up in the game. Then at home they were poor producing no shots on target as Lille beat them 1-0 in a poor game. This could be a very tricky game for the Red and White’s.

Angers v Reims: Prediction
It’s fair to say that both sides come into this game low on confidence and really needing a win. However both have played some poor football and this is a match that may not have many chances in it, a draw would not be a surprise if this was the final result.
To cover us it may make more sense to back Reims to win this on the handicap, the value is quite good also. For smaller stakes we will also back the final correct score.
Handicap: Reims to beat Angers with a +1 goal start at 1.50 (1/2)
