Lille vs Angers
French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 18th May 2019
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy (Lille).
Lille have secured Champions League football at least for the play offs but if the club want automatic qualification then they must finish 2nd.
Currently they are 2nd and have a good 6-point advantage over Lyon, they look all set to finish as runners up to PSG, and this home match against Angers would confirm that, they will be the big favourites to win.
Lille have not lost in two months and form has been reliable and solid, at home they have lost just 2 times this season and they have won 3 games in a row in front of their own fans. Their last match ended in a 1-0 win over lowly Bordeaux.
Angers are very much safe in 13th place they lost their last game but that was against PSG and it only ended in a 2-1 loss. Angers away form has been decent with just one defeat in their past five games, this includes victories over Bordeaux and Caen.
But playing better quality in Lille represents a different and huge challenge. Angers do like to score away though and have found the net in their last five games which includes playing the likes of Marseille and lyon.

Lille vs Angers: Prediction
If last weekend’s version of Lille turns up for this game it might be worth backing Angers to win on the handicap since they have such a fantastic record over the club.
But we think this is where Lille will break their bad record over Angers. Lille have been fantastic this season and this match is their farewell to the fans.
We expect Lille to win but they are odds on so we will back in different markets, but we do expect to see a good game which could have a few goals.
