Angers vs Nancy Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Angers will be aiming to build on their recent victory in Ligue 1 when they welcome Nancy at the Stade Jean-Bouin on Saturday evening. Angers managed a hard-fought 1-2 victory on the road at Lille last time out thanks to two goals from Pierrick Capelle and Romain Thomas. On the contrary, Nancy were beaten 0-3 at home by Montpellier last weekend despite the fact that they had a better ball possession and more goalscoring opportunities than the visitors. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Angers Preview

Angers have enjoyed a decent run of form over the past three weeks, losing just once in their last five games across all competitions. They were on a two-game winless streak in Ligue 1 prior to their narrow 1-2 away victory at Lille last time out. This means that Angers managed just two victories since the return to action in Ligue 1 following the winter break. Angers currently stand in 14th position in the Ligue 1 table tied on 27 points with Nancy and Metz, just two points clear of the relegation zone. Their home form throughout the season has been decent, as Angers have only lost three of their 13 home fixtures across all competitions. Scoring goals has definitely been Angers’ biggest problem throughout the season, as they hold one of the worst offensive records in the division with just 21 goals scored in 25 league fixtures. Famara Diedhiou has been Angers’ most influential player on the pitch so far this season, as the 24-year-old striker is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with six goals in his 21 league appearances. Cheikh N’Doye has also played a crucial role in Angers’ performances throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, helping the team with a decent return of two goals and three assists. Angers should feel confident ahead of this clash as they are undefeated in the last four home meetings with Nancy, winning two and drawing two in the process.

Nancy Preview

Meanwhile, Nancy are on the same number of points, 27, but they have played a game more than their Saturday’s opponents. Nancy currently stand in 15th spot in the league table, two points clear of the drop zone. Similar to their Saturday’s opponents, Nancy have also struggled in the final third this season. Actually, Nancy hold the joint worst offensive record in the division, scoring just 18 goals in 24 league outings. Issiar Dia and Youssef Ait Bennasser have been Nancy’s most dangerous players in front of goal so far this season, as the pair bagged seven goals and two assists between them. Nancy’s recent form has been awful as they have lost five of their last six games across all competitions and failed to score a single goal in this term. During this poor run of form, Nancy were knocked-out from both Coupe de la Ligue and Coupe de France following defeats at the hands of Monaco and CA Bastia respectively. Their away form has also been a problem, as Nancy have suffered three defeats in their last four away games in all competitions, conceding seven goals and scoring none in the process. In addition, Nancy are winless in their last four visits to the Stade Jean-Bouin, registering two defeats and two draws in this term.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Angers looked much better than Nancy in this early part of the year, and I think they have enough quality within their squad to pick up three points in this one. In addition, Angers have only lost two of their last twelve home fixtures across all competitions and are currently on a four-game unbeaten run. Furthermore, Angers are undefeated in the last four home meetings with Nancy, scoring at least once in each of these.
