Caen vs Angers Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Caen will be aiming to continue their good start to the new Ligue 1 season when they welcome Angers at the Stade Michel d’Ornano on Saturday evening. Caen were lucky to snatch all three points from their trip to Rennes last time out in Ligue 1, with Rennes’ defender Ramy Bensebaini scoring an own-goal. On the other hand, Angers managed to fight back from two-goals down to secure a 3-3 home draw against Lyon thanks to goals from Karl Toko Ekambi and Ismael Traore along with an own-goal from Rafael. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Caen are the in-form team in this one, but Angers hold the better head-to-head record. It’s difficult to predict the winner here, but I’m fancying goals at both ends of the field as both these sides scored in three of their last four meetings between them.

Caen Preview

Caen have struggled a little bit in the opening rounds of the new Ligue 1 season, but their recent form has been impressive. They have won five of their last six games in Ligue 1, with their only defeat coming at the hands of Nantes a month ago. They haven’t scored too many goals in this term, but their defensive line has been excellent, having kept four clean sheets in their last six league fixtures. Actually, Caen hold the best defensive record in the division with just four goals conceded in eight games. They sit comfortably in 5th in the Ligue 1 table tied on 15 points with the 6th-placed Bordeaux after eight rounds, just four points behind the second-placed Monaco. On home soil, Caen are currently on a three-game winning streak, conceding just once in this term. The bad news is that Caen are winless in their last five home meetings with Angers across all competitions, losing two in the process. Ivan Santini has been the standout player for Caen in this early part of the season, scoring three goals in his eight league appearances.

Caen Team News

Jeff Louis is a doubt, but Alexander Djiku is out through an ACL injury.

Angers Preview

Meanwhile, Angers have struggled to convert draws into victories in this early part of the season, as they are the draw specialists of the division so far with six draws under their belts after eight games. Angers are currently on a six-game winless streak in Ligue 1, but they looked decent of late with two consecutive draws against Nice and Lyon. The fact that Angers managed to score five goals in their most recent games against strong sides in the shape of Nice and Lyon prove that they shouldn’t have any problems in finding the back of the net in this one. They managed a decent tally of 12 goals in eight rounds so far this season, including three from their topscorer Karl Toko Ekambi. Thomas Mangani has also played a vital part in Angers’ performance throughout this campaign, helping the team with two goals and three assists in his eight league appearances. Angers find themselves in 12th spot in the Ligue 1 table tied on nine points with Montpellier, four points clear of the bottom three. They can count on their away form over the past five months, winning five and drawing five in this term. Head-to-head, Angers have won their last five meetings with Caen across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in four of these.

Angers Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Angers, but Billy Ketkeophomphone is back in training.
