Angers will host Marseille in a match counting for Ligue 1 Round 16 at Stade Raymond-Kopa.
Stephane Moulin’s team is currently sitting at 3rd place with 26 points and a win against Marseille could see them overtake Andre Villas Boas squad. They have a very good record at home with 6 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, having scored 15 goals and only conceding 4. Almost 80% of their points total has come at their home turf, so it’s expected to be a very difficult match for Marseille. Six of the nineteen Angers’ goals came after the 80th minute mark, an interesting statistic, meaning that they will always have a chance to claim the win if the game is tied in the last minutes. Even though they’re performing at a very high level, Marseille has a better overall squad, and should make the match very interesting.
On the other hand, Marseille is going through an excellent moment as well. They’re 5 points behind league leaders Paris Saint-Germain, and come off four straight wins. It looks like Villas Boas’ mechanics are finally settling in the players, as they seem to be more comfortable each time they play. However, they’ll face an extremely tough opponent when playing at home, and they need to be at their best if they want to have a chance at winning. Angers only conceded 4 goals at Stade Raymond-Kopa, and Marseille is having trouble to score away from home, as the last time they’ve scored two or more was at Monaco almost three months ago. This is shaping up to be a very good match between these two teams.
Their last three head-to-head at Angers have seen them both scoring, and that’s the most likely scenario for Wednesday match.
