Angers vs Saint-Etienne
France Ligue 1
Date: Sunday 22nd September 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers)
Compared to the struggle last season Angers have started well and will be more than happy with the 3 wins they have picked up from five games played. Last weekend they played Lille away and lost 2-1 and come into this game in 7th place with 9 points.
At home Angers have been very strong with all their wins coming here and that means beating the likes of Bordeaux, Metz and Dijon. The club will be hard to beat at home and if they keep up these type of performances they should be safe from any relegation threat.
Saint Etienne have not started as well as pundits would have predicted at the beginning of the season. After winning their first game of the season they have won no games in their last 4 matches and have fallen to 16th place as a result. Their away form has been poor with two losses already and their last game ended in a 2-2 draw at home to Toulouse.
Angers vs Saint-Etienne: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
- Angers have no wins in the last 8 meetings.
- There is a 65% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Angers vs Saint-Etienne: Prediction
Saint Etienne have enjoyed coming here and have won 2 times in this stadium from the last three visits with the other game ending in a draw. However we feel that Angers are due a win and are in the right frame of mind to get one.
Saint Etienne have started the season poorly and if truth be told at this time they have no direction. Angers have been very strong at home and we have seen nothing to suggest so far this season that Saint Etienne can present a danger for the club.
Also worth noting is that Angers are scoring goals at home and Saint Etienne have been conceding quite a few lately.
