Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Beaujoire (Nantes).
Nantes and Angers is a local derby and both teams will be 100% motivated to claim the bragging rights over the weekend when they clash on Sunday afternoon.
Nantes are in very poor form and have slipped to 16th place, last weekend they lost 3-2 at Reims who themselves have not had a good start to the campaign. Nantes come into this match with no confidence and will have to pick themselves up.
Depending on other results the home side could move up a couple of places with victory and they will have to remember that they are just 3 points from the bottom three.
Angers are in 9th and a huge 9 points clear of Nantes and that is why all of the pressure will be on the home side. However Angers come here in average to poor form with no wins in their last two games and they lost last weekend at home to Strasbourg 2-0.
Away from home Angers have gone their last 4 matches unbeaten which includes 3 wins and their last match on the road ended in a 0-0 stalemate against Saint Etienne.
Nantes vs Angers: Head to Head
- Angers won this fixture last season 2-1.
- Angers have won the last 3 league meetings.
- There is an 80% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Nantes vs Angers: Prediction
Angers are the favourites to win this game and easily come with the better form. These are worrying times for Nantes who also have poor recent results over their neighbours.
However Nantes played some good football last weekend even if they lost to Reims 3-2 and there were many positives to be taken away from that game.
Nantes need to turn their poor form around and the motivation could be in winning this derby at home. The value is very good to see the home side win and we will back this market.
