Angers vs Lorient Predictions

Angers will be incredibly grateful of their excellent first half to the season, because if it weren’t for that they would almost certainly find themselves close to the relegation zone in Ligue 1.

They come into this match having won just one of their last 11 matches in all competitions and with eight defeats to their name during this period, a run of form which has seen them drop to 12th in the table. They aren’t out of danger yet though, because Gazelec Ajaccio in 18th position are only six points adrift of them such is the tightness in Ligue 1.

If they don’t turn their form around soon they could well find themselves in a relegation battle that nobody saw coming after their excellent start to the season.

Lorient sit level on points with their opponents going into this match, one position above Angers. But the sides are worlds apart when it comes to recent form, with Lorient coming into this match on the back of a five match unbeaten streak in which they have won three games and booked their place in the Coupe De France semi finals.

Lorient have managed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four away days in all competitions, whilst Angers have also seen at least one team keep a clean sheet in an incredible 11 of their last 14 matches at home. This makes odds of 3/4 for Both Teams Not to Score excellent value for money, so that’s my main backing for this one. The evidence for this backing is also boosted by the fact that there has been a clean sheet in four of the last five meetings between these sides and the fact that Lorient are without their top scorer due to injury.

Lorient have won two of their last four matches on the road and only lost once, whilst Lorient have managed won win and three defeats in their last five home matches in all competitions. I think the visitors have a good chance of getting a win here, so a 1-0 win for Lorient at 13/2 looks good to me.
