Angers - Lorient

PICK: Lorient AH +0,5 @1,90 PINNACLE 5/10

Match between 10th and 20th placed team in French Ligue 1 will be played on Saturday at 20:00 on Stade Jean-Bouin in Angers.


Angers is coming to match after being defeated in Paris, what is not big surprise. For me, it was not even surprise to see lost in Angers against St. Etienne, specially because they had few problems with suspensions and injuries. Anyway, they are still without Ketkeophomphone, and his offensive abilities are missing in this team. Some players will probably come back to team, also formation will be settled back on 4 defenders instead of 5, and Andreu should return on left back position.

Lorient doesn't play that bad. I am saying that for a while, and I was on they're side against Rennes in last round, and they surprised them and won the derby. Angers is another team not far away, and I believe that they can get at least a point there. As I said in last analysis, with Moukandjo back, they're attack looks much better and whole team plays better. Waris scored 2 goals in last two matches, while Moukandjo is already at 6 goals and 1 assist. They will be without they're first goalkeeper, but they will be without him for a while, so they should get used to it.

In my opinion, Lorient will be the team who will try to be in possession, and at least being at the same number of chances then Angers. They will try to win some set pieces, but otherwise they're play is nothing spectacular. I trust much more to Lorient and in my eyes this match is totally in edge. Home pitch is the only advantage of Angers. Difference between teams is 7 points and I even think that till end of the season Lorient will be in front of Angers.

FT: 2-2
