Caen vs Angers
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 13th April 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Michel d’Ornano (Caen).
Time is running out for Caen who are in 19th place and 8 points from safety. In theory they look like being relegated but the play-off could yet save the club if they can climb up to 18th. Holding that position is Dijon and just 1 point seperates the clubs.
Caen lost their last game away to Nimes 2-0 and have won just 1 game in their past five. The worst news for the club is that they have the poorest home form in the league where their fans have seen just 2 wins all season and just 12 goals!
Angers are in an incredible comfortable position in 12th and have drawn their last 5 games in a row. They have been involved in some very exciting matches though, think the 3-3 draw in their last game against Rennes. The 2-2 draw against Marseille having been 2-0 down and the 2-2 result against Montpellier. Away from home the club have drawn their last two matches. They are very much safe on 38 points coming into this game.

Caen vs Angers: Prediction
The result points to an Angers win since they are the better team. But Caen needs to step up and they are running out of home games to do so. We will opt for the home team but at minimum odds. They usually do not perform well against Angers but that can’t last and they do have more motivation to win this game.
We also believe that Angers are on holiday mode, they are playing some nice free flowing football but against Caen this game could get physical and bogged down which may suit the home side.
