Strasbourg vs Angers
France Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 9th February 2019
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Meinau (Strasbourg).
Strasbourg are having one of their best seasons in a while and they are also on top form coming into this game where they have won 4 matches in a row.
They will be the favourites to collect another three points when they take on Angers and they are currently 8 points ahead of them. The home side are in 6th place and a win could push them up to 4th and at least 5th as they chase a European finish to the season.
Strasbourg have goals in them, and they have scored 8 in their past 3 games and at home they are unbeaten in their last four matches with their last loss occurring in November against Nimes.
Angers look safe in 13th place and on 27 points, but they have also picked up a little form having gone unbeaten in their last two games which was a draw against Toulouse and then a home win over Dijon by 1-0.
On the road they have drawn almost half of their games and indeed they come into this game having drawn 4 of their last 5 matches. They have not won away from home for four months.

Strasbourg vs Angers: Prediction
Our tip here is to see a home victory. It is true that Strasbourg have a poor record over Angers however maybe they can end that after their last 10 years ago. Strasbourg are a different team to previous seasons, and they look very strong and are amongst the best in form sides in Ligue 1.
Angers have become draw specialists and may come here and set up for that result. That could in turn be a mistake and give too much possession for the home side. We think they can dominate this game and have many chances. A home win and for smaller stakes we will predict the final score.
