Lille vs Angers
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday 6th January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille)
Lille have had a superb start to the league but it now in January when things get serious. The club are in 2nd place and 1 point ahead of PSG as they aim to chase down Lyon.
Lille will be the favourites to win this game and their last match ended in a 3-2 win at Montpellier. Lille are only separated from league leaders Lyon on goal difference.
At home Lille has the best record in Ligue 1 winning 21 points from a possible 27 and they are still unbeaten in their own stadium. The last game to take place here was a huge one as they entertained PSG and that match finished 0-0.
Angers are doing well in 9th place and have 27 points and the club will be thinking about a possible European spot if they keep up their form.
Angers could go 5th with a win and if other teams just in front either draw or lose and their last game finished in a brilliant 2-1 win over Marseille. Angers have performed very well away from home winning 50% of their games and are unbeaten in their last five trips.
Lille vs Angers: Head to Head
- Last season Lille won this fixture 2-1.

Lille vs Angers: Prediction
Lille have been strong this season and brilliant at home but their odds are around 1.57 and that seems to short in this type of fixture.
The value is with Angers who have a great recent away record and are not easy to beat. Past fixtures against Lille has seen close games too and we think on the handicap Angers can give Lille some questions in front of goal.
There are usually not many goals in this fixture but we think there will be and this could be quite an explosive game with many chances for both sides.
