Angers were disappointing in their 1-1 draw at home to Strasbourg last weekend and now they face a tougher opposition in the form of Nice. With the way the fixtures have worked out this has been a bizarre time for Angers and with some luck this will be their 3rd straight home match. They are almost in a safe position but would need a win here to try and guarantee that this weekend.
Recently Angers home form has been good and the club have gone the last 3 matches unbeaten, scoring 7 goals and conceding just once. Nice are chasing 5th place and are just one point from that so this game remains important for them to win. They are in good form too with just 1 loss in their past five games.
Away from home, Nice has gone the last 3 games unbeaten and have scored 7 goals in their last two matches. Nice will start as the favourites to win the match but Angers will be no pushover and could swamp the midfield with five players.

Our main bet will be to see both teams score and we will also back over 2.5 goals as we expect to see some as both teams will go out attacking. We should see an enjoyable game of football to kick off this week Ligue 1 matches.
