Reims vs Angers
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 9th November 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Delaune.
Reims will return home after losing to Nice last weekend by 2-0 and they have now slipped down the table after some poor form. They are 7th and have gone two games without a win. That in itself is not the end of the world but what has been concerning is that the club have not been playing well and have been creating very few chances.
On Saturday they will take on Angers and a win could put Reims in back in the top 5 so there is everything to play for. At home the club have drawn too many but have also lost just once. The good news is that they have only conceded 2 goals at home, but only scored 4.
Angers have been one of the best surprises in Ligue 1 this season. Usually struggling, they have started really well and come into this game in 2nd place. They are 7 points behind PSG.
Angers beat Strasbourg last weekend which was good as that ended a run of 4 games without a win as it appeared that the clubs form had dipped. Away from home Angers have won just 1 game and really struggled on the road, their last game on the road finished 0-0 against Montpellier.

Reims vs Angers: Prediction
Reims are one of the most unpredictable teams in Ligue 1. One week looking great the other not so, and it can be frustrating. But we are backing them to get all three points in this game. Angers are very poor away from home and Reims keep their defensive line very compact.
We expect a low scoring game but one in which one or two chances will be all that is needed. This game might be slow to watch with only the odd goal being the difference and we do not expect a classic game, but Reims could enter the top 5 with a win here which will be their main motivation.
