Angers vs Reims
France- Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 28th April 2019
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Reims)
The legendary player Raymond Kopa from the 1950s is the clear link between these two teams. Angers stadium is named after him and Reims have recently unveiled a statue of the player outside their stadium who also went on to play for Real Madrid.
Angers are in 12th place on 41 points and find themselves in a safe place but too far to compete for European football. However Angers have been in good form and lost 2-1 to Lyon last weekend which ended a 4 game unbeaten run. At home the club have only lost 4 games all season and come here on a 5 game unbeaten run.
Reims did have a chance for European football a few weeks ago but their form has dipped. Last weekend they lost at home to Saint Etienne which underlined that the club do not belong to the top 5 teams just yet. They have dropped 6 points behind and it will be very difficult for them to recover now.
They are in 7th but have gone their last 4 matches now without a win. Away from home they have just 1 win in their last 5 games and have drawn 50% of their matches on the road.
Angers vs Reims: Head to Head

Angers have not beaten Reims when being at home since 2008.
Angers vs Reims: Prediction
We expect a very close game when these two teams clash and not many goals. These two are he draw specialists and could well cancel each other out. At the same time Reims have a decent record over Angers and will be hard to break down.
Considering all of these options we will just have one main choice for this match at maximum stakes and back Reims on the double chance which covers us if the match does end up as a draw.
This is odds on, but perhaps it is also a selection that could be added as a part of an accumulator if you do not like singles.
