Caen vs Angers SCO
Date: 14th October 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Michel d’Ornano.
Patrice Garande could have hardly imagined off a better start to the new Ligue 1 campaign with his Caen who hold the sky-high fifth position after eight rounds of the competition in the elite class of the French football.
His men will have a nice opportunity to maintain the fine form this Saturday when they host the struggling Angers SCO side at Stade Michel d’Ornano.
Caen’s biggest strength lies at the back as the team conceded no more than four goals in eight matches of the campaign so far.
They haven’t scored much more either (seven), but what’s important is that they picked up five wins in last six league outings (mainly with the same scoreline of 1-0).
The Croatian striker Ivan Santini is their main force up front. He notched goals in both of Caen’s last two home fixtures and he will be the main target in the final third against Angers as well.
Santini should have plenty of room to deliver against Les Scoistes who allowed as many as five goals in last two Ligue 1 outings.
Truth be told, the visitors have also been quite efficient on the other side of the court netting the same number of goals against the likes of Nice and Olympique Marseille.
Caen vs Angers SCO: Head to head
Caen lead the head to head tie by two wins, but they have lost five in a row against Les Scoistes who did not have too many troubles scoring goals past their defensive line in the most recent history.
Caen vs Angers SCO: Prediction
We believe the time has come for Caen to end the unpleasant streak in matches with Angers and we can see their defense winning this one.
The value is in backing the hosts to pick up points at 7/5, while Ivan Santini is 6/4 to keep the spell of excellent form going and find his way past the struggling defense of Les Scoistes’.
