Marseille vs Angers
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 30th March 2019
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade Velodrome (Marseille).
French Ligue 1 football is back after the international break and Marseille will host Angers, in a game where the home side will be the favourites to get all three points.
Before the break Marseille lost 3-1 to bitter rivals PSG but take out that game and the club have been one of the best inform sides in the league. It has taken them to 4th place and they still have a chance for a top 3 place although they cannot afford to drop too many points as Lyon are 6 points in front of them.
Rudi Garcia’s side have only lost 2 games at home all season and have won their last 4 games in a row at Stade Velodrome.
Angers are in a good position of 12th and 14 points clear of the relegation zone, the problem is that they are too far to really challenge for a European place and in effect it feels like their season is over.
The club have not won a game for almost six weeks and have drawn their last 3 in a row. Their last away match ended in a decent 2-2 draw against Montpellier although in reality the club have won just 3 games on the road all season.
Marseille vs Angers: Head to Head

Marseille vs Angers: Prediction
Sometimes after international breaks we can get surprises, but we don’t expect to see one here.
We have to factor in that Marseille are at home and are in form and have more motivation to win this game.
Marseille are 1.50 (1/2) to win the game but we feel confident that they can win with a minus handicap, and score a few goals here.
Angers have a good record of scoring against Marseille and that is why we will also back the both teams to score.
We expect to see an entertaining game of football but Marseille will have too much for this Angers side.
