Angers vs Strasbourg
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 6th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa (Angers).
Angers are in 11th place and suffered a shock home loss to bottom club Guingamp last weekend in a 1-0 loss. Nobody would have seen it coming given that Angers had gone on a 4 game unbeaten streak and that Guingamp had not won a game this season.
The club will be looking to bounce back as they have the chance to play another game at home. However on the face of it Angers home form has not been good where from a possible 12 points they have won just 4 and that will need to improve.
Strasbourg are in 8th and are 1 point ahead of their hosts so they could lose their place with a loss. Last weekend they cruised to a 3-0 win over Dijon and form has been mixed but they have lost just 1 game from their last 4 coming into this match.
Away from home is a concern for the club who won their first game but have now not won away in their last 3 attempts. They have also conceded in 3 out of 4 matches.
Angers vs Strasbourg: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 1-1.
- 3 of the last 5 meetings have ended in draws.
Strasbourg have not won at Angers in over 10 years.
Angers vs Strasbourg: Prediction
What we have is too closely matched teams and there isn’t much in this game at all. Angers should start the brighter of the two as they will want to make amends for their poor loss against Guingamp.
Strasbourg have proven themselves to be a difficult team to beat but have been poor on the road so our bet will be a risky one and that is to see the draw at full time. We will also opt to see more goals scored in the 2nd half of the game as it opens up.
Angers vs Strasbourg: Bet Tips
