Toulouse vs Angers
France – Ligue 1
Date: Wednesday, 25 September 2019
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Stadium Municipal (Toulouse).
Despite finishing 13th in the table last season, Angers seem determined to become a top tier prospect this time around. They currently are placed second in the table, just below PSG, and with four wins from their six match-days in the league so far, the team is threatening to actually fulfill their objective.
The squad did face two losses this campaign in the Ligue 1, but both were against some of the best in the competition.
In that regards, a tie against the 16th placed side of the 2018-19 edition of Ligue 1, holds much promise. While Alain Casanova’s men do have the home advantage, they seem unequipped at the moment to take on this incoming visitors based on form alone.
The home advantage, however, could change the equation.
Toulouse vs Angers Head-to-head (h2h)
- Astonishingly, Angers failed to score in the previous six clashes on the trot.
- Five of the former six wins went to Toulouse.
- Two of the prior three encounters at this stadium resulted in home wins.
- Only once have the guests succeeded in scoring at this venue.
Toulouse vs Angers Prediction
While current form firmly picks the guests as the favorites, they do have a long period of h2h inferiority to overcome. As of now, Stephane Moulin’s men are one of the best in France, are placed second in the table, and have even scored goals more than defending champions PSG.
The Violets, on the other hand, avoided relegation by a whisker in 2018-19, and are on the course to go through the same ordeal again. They possess the 13th position in the table at the moment and have just two wins to show for this campaign.
As such, count on the visitors to keep their momentum going, and avoid the loss at the least this match-day.
Going on though, the challenges Les Scoistes have faced on a regular basis against this opponent cannot simply be discarded. For a long period of time, they found it hard to even mount a reasonable challenge against the Violets, and have suffered.
Also, this season, Toulouse has a perfect winning record at home, despite their struggles overall, and consequentially, a clean sheet for Angers is ruled out.
