Angers vs. Strasbourg – Prediction (Ligue 1 – 02.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Angers’ 1-0 loss to Brest in their last Ligue 1 (L1) home outing ended a run of six straight home fixtures without a loss in the top-flight (W4, D2). However, ‘Les Scoïstes’ can take confidence from the fact that they have failed to find the net in just two of their last 21 L1 home fixtures. Angers’ current top league scorer, Rachid Alioui, has scored each of his four L1 goals after the hour mark. Impressively, Angers’ last five L1 home wins have been achieved with a -1 handicap or more, and ten of their last 12 league wins here have been accompanied by a clean sheet. Whilst the last two H2Hs here have both been scoring draws, Angers will look to build on their great historical competitive H2H home record against ‘Le Racing’ (W10, D10, L4). Furthermore, Angers have not lost a home competitive clash against Strasbourg since 1993 (W2, D3 thereafter).

Angers’ last five L1 goals have arrived beyond the 80th minute. At all venues, each of the previous six L1 H2Hs have featured both teams scoring. Both teams have scored in just one of Strasbourg’s last eight L1 road trips.

Strasbourg have struggled away from home in the league in recent times, winning just one of their last 13 L1 away fixtures (W1, D5, L7) and losing each of this season’s four road trips ‘to-nil’. Strasbourg’s top marksman, Adrien Thomasson, has scored two of his three league strikes between the 20th-30th minute. This game could be a tight clash though, especially as just two of Strasbourg’s last 13 L1 away matches have been settled by a two-goal margin or more. However, the fact that the visitors have failed to score a first-half goal in each of their last eight L1 road trips will certainly worry coach Thierry Laurey.
