Angers vs Lille Match Preview
Lille made the top 4 cut with a comeback and a 1-2 win at Strasbourg over the weekend and they have a busy schedule on their hands as they look to build on it, travelling to Angers for their Matchday 24 clash on Friday evening – just days after hosting Rennes on Tuesday evening.
LOSC have struggled for consistency on the road despite scoring goals on the regular, seeing League Cup and Coupe de France exits in the hands of Lyon (on penalties after a 2-2 draw) and Epinal (2-1), respectively. They’ll now want more and we do feel Christophe Galtier should have no troubles lifting his men’s team spirits.
Angers have seen exciting yet very disappointing losses to Rennes (4-5) in Coupe de France and Reims (1-4) in Ligue 1 last week, desperate to bounce back and rediscover their consistency at the back. They’ve been conceding on the regular and this will be a worry for the crowd at Raymond-Kopa Stadium on Friday as well.
Black and Whites held off Monaco (0-0) and Nice (1-1) beforehand, though, and we do expect a tough challenge here. They sit just four points behind the rivals ahead of another busy week and keeping track of spots leading to UEFA competitions will be crucial for Stephane Moulin and his men.
We don’t see them doing so, though, and we’ll now rather stick with Lille to snatch all three points on Friday evening – as we back an Away win at 9/5 with William Hill which feels like great value and the best approach to the fixture.
We should be in for goals and Angers should force the rivals into an exciting game, which has us going for a high-scoring occasion with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 13/10 with bet365. We’ve seen both sides enjoying such games lately and this serves as further evidence for such a bet.
