Nantes vs Angers Prediction 17 December 2017

Tournament: French Ligue 1
Location: Stade de la Beaujoire Louis Fonteneau
Match date: 17.12.2017 at 14:00

On December 17 2017 at 14:00 in the upcoming regular match of the French Ligue 1 at the Stade de la Beaujoire Louis Fonteneau the local Nantes will play against their guests Angers.

Nantes are considered to be the favorites of the upcoming match not just because of the fact that they are playing at home this time but also because of their position in the table and their performance.

The Canaries lost to Lille and Marseille without scoring a single goal at the start of the league and after that they had six matches long lossless series where they won five times and drew once. That exact series let Nantes go up in the table and take the fifth place in it. Even their next bad period when they only won three times and lost four times in their nine matches played didn’t make them go down in the standings. Nantes also have one of the best results of the league in the domestic matches as they won five times in their 8 matches played.

As for Angers, they are on the one before last place in the table as they only have 15 points now. Yet, their situation doesn’t seem to be hopeless as they are just three points below the safe 17th place. Despite the fact that in the latest seven matches Angers didn’t win even once, they still managed to break their losing series as they drew really strong Montpellier. Moreover, Anger had an advantage in possession and committed more attempts which proves that they are slowly improving their performance. We must admit that Angers are more confident in their away matches compared to the home ones and both of their victories were away ones.

There is one more reason why we think that the hosts are more likely to win. It’s the fact that the Canaries had two days more for their rest as they played their latest match earlier. As for the guests, they played against Metz and won 1:0 which let them make it to the quarterfinal of the competition.

There is one thing which bothers us about the possible conditions of the guests and it’s the fact that they have a lot of players injured in their squad because of injuries and disqualifications.

Of course, Nantes have an advantage in the history of head-to-heads of the teams as they won their latest four games played against Angers in a row. They also won six latest games against Angers at their domestic stadium. Despite all of the players missing, we still think that the hosts have an obvious advantage and they are much more likely to win in the upcoming match.
