Marseille vs Angers
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 25th January 2020
Kick off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome.
Marseille saw PSG go 8 points clear at the top after the current champions won their game in hand over Monaco. The league is looking in the balance for Marseille but with so many games still left to play they won’t be giving up just yet. Plus, they need to keep winning because Rennes are only 5 points behind L’OM.
As it stands if Marseille can finish in 2nd it would be a successful season for them as that would mean qualification for the Champions League.
At the weekend they will take on Angers who have been strong this season also. Marseille’s form has been very good gaining 13 points from their last 15. The club’s form has been superb and they haven’t lost a game since the end of October when they were beaten by PSG.
Angers are in 10th place and have gone their last 3 games unbeaten. Their last result ended in a 1-1 draw with Nice. A win would be huge and could see the club move into the top 6. Away from home the club won their last game which was the derby over Nantes and that was hugely important for them. However they have lost 5 from their 9 games on the road and have only scored 7 goals.

Marseille vs Angers: Prediction
Marseille have actually struggled against Angers at home in recent years, but the club look the real deal this season and have a much improved squad.
The club have won 70% of their games at home and have only lost 1 match. They are almost scoring 2 goals per game at home and Angers will be really up against it as the club look to secure 2nd place.
We will back the club to win and think they are decent value to score at least 2 goals, which they are going to need if they have hopes of winning this game.
