Amiens vs Angers Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

The newly-promoted side Amiens will be looking for their first victory in Ligue 1 when they welcome Angers at the Stade de la Licorne on Saturday evening. Amiens had a difficult trip to Paris Saint Germain in the first ever Ligue 1 game last weekend, but they should be satisfied with the result as they have only lost 2-0. Meanwhile, Angers fought back from one goal down to secure a 2-2 home draw against Bordeaux thanks to a late goal from Baptiste Guillaume, despite the fact that Angelo Fulgini gave them the lead in the 11th minute in the first place. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Angers have always had problems in their visits to the Stade de la Licorne and I’m expecting them to struggle again after seeing Amiens’ match against Paris Saint Germain. I’m definitely expecting a low-scoring affair as both sides have sold their top scorers throughout the summer and both failed to bring in any decent replacements.

Amiens Preview

The minnows travelled to Paris Saint Germain last weekend, and despite their 2-0 loss, Amiens looked pretty well-organized at the back as PSG needed 40 minutes to break the deadlock. Actually, Amiens are well-known for their defensive football as they had the second best defensive record in Ligue 2 last term, conceding just 38 goals in 38 rounds. As a small side, Amiens’ main goal this season is survival and to achieve this they need to collect points at home. They were the 4th best home team in Ligue 2 last season, losing just five of their 19 home league fixtures. Les Licornes have won their last three competitive home fixtures towards the end of the Ligue 2 season, but they failed to win a single friendly fixture in front of their own fans in pre-season. The good news is that Amiens are undefeated in their last three home meetings with Angers, keeping two clean sheets in the process. Scoring goals will be Amiens’ main issue this season as they have lost their last season’s top scorer Aboubakar Kamara to Fulham for €6m this summer and only brought Monaco B’s centre-forward Brighton Labeau as a replacement.

Amiens Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Amiens ahead of this game.

Angers Preview

Angers, on the contrary, won four friendly games in a row between their 2-2 home draw against Bordeaux in the opening round of the new Ligue 1 season last weekend, with Angelo Fulgini and Baptiste Guillaume both getting on the scoresheet for Stephane Moulin’s men. Angers managed to secure their Ligue 1 status with ease last term, but they have sold last season top scorer Famara Diedhiou this summer, while the new signing Enzo Crivelli is still unable to play due to his injury. The good news is that Baptiste Guillaume got on the scoresheet on his debut last weekend, after joining the club from Lille for €2m this summer. Angers can count on their recent away form as they have won four and drawn two of their last six away games across all competitions, keeping four clean sheets in the process. The bad news is that Angers are winless in their last three meetings with Amiens, scoring just once in this term. Furthermore, Angers have only won once in their six visits to the Stade de la Licorne while losing four.

Angers Team News

Abdoulaye Bamba and Enzo Crivelli are both doubts, while Wilfried Kanga Aka, Loic Puyo and Billy Ketkeophomphone are still missing through injury.
