Nice vs Angers
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 30th November 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Allianz Riviera (Nice)
Is it all going wrong for Patrick Vieira and Nice? Since the French legend arrived at the club they have looked stable and then started to win games and threaten to play in Europe but they are suffering now in his 2nd season and as a result come into this game in 15th place.
Recent form has been poor for the club with just 1 win in their last five and 4 points from their last 15. Still however bad it has been for the club they have some luck given how close the league table is.
For example, they are 1 win in theory to be in the top six, so really there is everything to play for.
Angers are 3rd in the league and that is one of the surprise stories of Ligue 1 so far this season. They are keeping up the consistency needed and last weekend the club beat Nimes 1-0. They have 24 points and are 1 point behind 2nd placed Marseille and 9 points behind PSG in top position.
The problem with Angers though is their away form. At home they have gained 19 of their 24 points, and that is just too much the other way.
It means that based on away form, Angers would actually be in 14th place. They have just 1 win all season and are like a different team on the road, also they are conceding on average 2 goals a game.
Nice vs Angers: Head to Head
Last season this fixture ended 0-0.
Nice have only scored 1 goal against Angers in the last 3 meetings,
Nice have not beaten Angers at home since 2016.
Nice vs Angers: Prediction
At Allianz Riviera Nice they have lost 2 from 7 but gained just 11 points from 21, though most of their points are being won at home, that is evident.
Angers have clearly been the better side of the two and yet Angers performances away from home have been shocking.
We don’t expect a great game filled with goals here and that is why we will concentrate on half time being a draw. Still we expect something to happen in the second half and will back that as well.
This looks like it will be a tense game and in truth Nice would be happy with a point here.
