Our Prediction:

Angers will win

Angers – St Etienne Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 11:00

Stephane Moulins charges have yet to suffer a loss in the French top flight this season, but they will have a big fish to fry against les Verts. As expected, Les Verts suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain at Parc des Princes in their last league fixture and it has to be noted that les Parisiens put an end to their three-game winning run in Ligue 1. Summer signing Jonathan Bamba, who played for Angers last season, is likely to pose a big threat for his former teammates. Stade Geoffroy-Guichard will host Sundays football game between Saint-Etienne and Angers. Saint-Etienne aim to get back on course and they are seen as favourites on paper to win Sundays football game against Angers. Oscar Garcias men outplayed the likes of Nice and Amiens in previous two home games in the national championship and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend.

You should know that in their last meeting at Stade Raymond-Kopa in the French elite division the two teams played out a 1-1 draw. Les Verts are determined to put an end to their four-game winless run in the national championship and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score.

Jean-Louis Gasset will want more of the same and we thus expect an exciting contest at Stade Raymond-Kopa. Les Verts have been scoring numbers of goals along the way and only failed to produce in the final third in a 0-1 home loss to Montpellier along the way, finding the net 12 times in their last four games on the road.

Saint-tienne can be a very good team and will take advantage of that if Angers arent careful. Angers have been very good for goals this season with nine scored but they really need to sure up their defence as theyve conceded nine times in their five matches so far. Angers have lost just one of their last twelve home matches with them currently on a run of three consecutive wins at the Stade Raymond-Kopa.
