Nimes vs Angers Prediction & Betting tips
Low flyer Nîmes Olympique won the last three games in the Ligue 1, while Angers already lost three league games in a row. Will both teams continue this trend on Saturday-evening?
It took until the beginning of February, but now Bernard Blaquart seems to have his team on the road. Earlier this month, AS Monaco won 3-1, followed by a 2-0 win over Dijon and last weekend a 3-1 win visiting Olympique Nice. Les Crocodiles quickly fell 1-0 behind in Nice, but just before half-time the Blaquart team came to the same level to hit twice more in the second half against ten men of Olympique Nice. Because of the third victory in a row in Ligue 1, Nîmes Olympique has now risen to eighteenth place, with only one point behind the safe seventeenth place.
This winter, Les Crocodiles strengthened itself with the French midfielder Yassine Benrahou, who will play for the Blaquart team on a rental basis until the summer. In his first five games in Ligue 1 for Nîmes, the midfielder with two goals and an assist was immediately important and he immediately proved his worth for his new team. At the end of the previous season and the start of this season, Benrahou had the chance to prove himself at Girondins de Bordeaux, but with one assist in ten gigs in the Girondins de Bordeaux, he made too little impression to force a basic spot .
In the first half of the season, it seemed for a long time that Angers might be the surprise of the season, but in the last few weeks the team of Stéphane Moulin has proven the opposite. This month, Scoïstes fell against Stade Reims, AS Monaco and Lille, and as a result, the Moulin team has since dropped to the shared 13th place. The backlog in the top four is already ten points, so a European ticket seems to be able to forget Les Scoïstes and, even worse, if Saturday night is lost again, the relegation line also comes terribly close.
In the last five games in the Ligue 1, Angers made no fewer than sixty goal attempts, of which eighteen were actually on goal, but in the end only two goals were scored for Angers. The effectiveness of the Scoïstes goal attempts is not something to write home about, but actually this trend has been noticeable throughout the season, because on average, the Moulin team scores just once per league match, like most relegation candidates. It is therefore not surprising that Angers only holds three teams in terms of performance in the last ten games in the Ligue 1, one of which on goal difference.
