Reims vs. Angers – Prediction (Ligue 1 – 09.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Reims are unbeaten against Angers in Ligue 1 in the 21st century (W1 D3), Reims’ last defeat against them in the top-flight was in September 1978 (0-3).

Stade de Reims’ 2-0 loss away to Nice in their last Ligue 1 (L1) outing bore some significance, with the result making it 11 league fixtures (out of 12) featuring under 2.5 goals. Overall, Reims’ matches this L1 campaign have witnessed 1.25 goals per-game on average – a league low. Reims’ top league scorer, Boulaye Dia, has registered each of his three L1 goals after the break, but he is yet to score on home soil. With Reims having registered a clean sheet in 66.67% of their league fixtures to date, no L1 side has shut out the opposition more often than Reims this L1 campaign. Unsurprisingly, with just 0.50 goals conceded per-match on average this league season, they boast the division’s best defence.

Five of Reims’ six home games this L1 season have produced a draw at half-time. Each of the last nine top-flight H2H meetings held here have witnessed both sides score. Six of Angers’ last eight L1 away games drawn/lost have seen them concede first inside the opening 15 minutes.

Visitors Angers come into this one having won just one of their five road trips in the league this term (W1, D1, L3). Furthermore, the visitors possess the L1 away table’s worst defensive record, after conceding an average of 2.40 goals per away game to date. Angers striker Rachid Alioui has scored each of his four league goals after the hour mark. In addition, Angers have conceded first, and done so in the first half, in four of their last six L1 road trips. Scoring first could be Angers’ key to victory. Significantly, ‘Les Scoïstes’ have won each of the four L1 games in which they have scored the opening goal this term.
