Angers vs Lille Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Angers will be aiming to extend their unbeaten start to the Ligue 1 season to four games when they welcome Lille at the Stade Raymond Kopa on Sunday afternoon. Angers did well to fight from behind to secure a 1-1 away draw at Marseille last weekend thanks to a late goal from Karl Toko Ekambi. Meanwhile, Lille lost 0-2 at home at the hands of Caen, with Marcelo Bielsa’s men conceding a goal in each half. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Angers are definitely the in-form team in this clash, but their recent home form has been poor. Meanwhile, Lille are now under pressure, and they definitely have enough quality within their squad to grab all three points. I’m expecting goals in this one as both teams have been involved in high-scoring affairs recently.

Angers Preview

Angers have won four friendly fixtures towards the end of their pre-season campaign and started the new Ligue 1 campaign in a similar manner. They managed two impressive draws against Bordeaux and Marseille along with a 0-2 victory on the road at the newcomers Amiens. Angers have looked very prolific in front of goal in this early part of the season, as they have already scored five goals in three games. The interesting fact is that all of Angers’ goals have been scored by different players, although Angelo Fulgini, Baptiste Guillaume and Thomas Mangani have also provided an assist each. Angers sit comfortably in 7th spot in the standings at the moment tied on five points with the 6th-placed Bordeaux. At home, Angers have enjoyed a good run of form in the first half of the previous campaign, but their recent run of form has seen them win just two of their last seven competitive fixtures. However, Angers should feel confident ahead of this clash as they are undefeated in the last four meetings with Lille in Ligue 1 and have kept a clean sheet in each of these. In addition, they picked up back-to-back wins in their two home meetings with Lille in Ligue 1.

Angers Team News

Abdoulaye Bamba and Wilfried Kanga Aka are both doubts, but Billy Ketkeophomphone is out through injury.

Lille Preview

Lille have great quality within their squad, but their recent form has been terrible. They started the new season with a comfortable 3-0 home win over Nantes, but only to suffer disappointing back-to-back defeats at the hands of Strasbourg and Caen. The most worrying fact is that Les Dogues have failed to score in four of their last six games across all competitions, including their most recent two league fixtures. This is a bit weird because they have some decent strikers in the shape of Anwar El-Ghazi, Luiz De Araujo Guimares Neto or Nicolas de Preville. Their recent away form has also let them down as they have lost five of their last eight games across all competitions and have failed to score in five of these. Furthermore, they have suffered defeats in each of their two visits to the Stade Raymond Kopa, scoring none in the process. Last season, Lille have lost both home and away at the hands of Angers, scoring just once in this term. Nicolas De Preville has been Lille’s top scorer last season with 14 goals under his belt, and he already managed to score once in this early part of the season.

Lille Team News

Eric Bautheac, Vincent Enyeama and Yassine Benzia are both doubts, but Thiago Mendes, Kevin Malcuit, Hamza Mendyl and Adama Soumaoro are still missing through injury.
