Marseille vs Angers Prediction & Betting tips
The only match in the Ligue 1 Saturday is between Olympique Marseille and Angers. No fewer than four of the last five games between the two teams ended in a 1-1 draw. Can we also expect a draw on Saturday or will there be a winner from the battle?
The catch-up of Olympique Marseille in third place in the last few weeks suffered a major blow just before the international break due to a defeat in le Classique against Paris Saint-Germain. In addition to the fact that 3-1 was lost against the arch rival, the damage went even further, as goalkeeper Steve Mandanda caught a red card by using his hands halfway through his own half. The gap in third place, now occupied by Olympique Lyonnais, is now again six points, while AS Saint-Étienne and Stade Reims are only one point behind the people of Marseilles.
Despite the fact that the Marseilles have already collected 38 hits this season, the figures show that Mandanda is the best choice for Rudi García. His competitor under the bar, 36-year-old Yohann Pélé, had already scored eleven goals in the six league games this season, while Mandanda, who started in 23 games, was allowed to fish the ball 26 times. It should be noted that the average number of points that were taken per game is virtually the same for both goalkeepers.
After the last three rounds of play, Angers seems to be competing again for the title of king of draws in the Ligue 1 by playing both against AS Monaco, Montpellier and Amiens. After 29 games (W-D-L: 8-12-9) Angers is in twelfth place with 36 points and a goal difference of +0 (33-33) with only three points behind in the left row. As almost every multiple mid-engined motorcycles are destroyed, there seem to be chances for a win to rise in the final phase of the season, but given that only one of the last ten away games in the competition was won, the team will be on also settle in advance with a point against the number four of the Ligue 1.
Despite the fact that the last three games of Angers ended in a draw, there were major differences between the Stéphane Moulin’s team in all three games. Against AS Monaco, a weak second half gave away a 2-0 lead, while there was a comeback against Montpellier with a man less after a 2-0 deficit. Against Amiens there was then a lot less difference between the two halves, but in the final phase Cristian Lopéz missed the chance for the three points for his team by missing a penalty.
