Angers take on the visitors Montpellier at “Stade Jean-Bouin” in the quarter-final game of the Coupe de la Ligue. The match will be played on Wednesday, January 10th.
In this season Angers hold the relegation battle in the French Ligue 1. The side managed to pick up seven points in nine home clashes, having lost four battles in face of its fans. The club’s attack does not impress, having scored only 10 goals so far while its defense also leaves much to be desired, having conceded 17 goals. “Les Scoïstes” passed through Nancy 3:2 and Metz 1:0 in the previous rounds of the Coupe de la Ligue. In the latest battles conducted at the home pitch Angers have beaten Dijon 2:1 and got 1:1 draw against Montpellier.

In their turn, Montpellier still may fight for a place in the next season’s Eurocups. The team collected 13 points in nine away matches, having failed three times in thems. The side’s offense is not able to produce an extraordinary effectiveness in attack, having scored seven goals o far while its defense stays in a remarkable shape instead, having conceded just five goals. “La Paillade” knocked out Guingamp 2:0 and Lyon 4:1 on the previous stages of the Coupe de la Ligue. Montpellier deserved 2:0 victory over Bordeaux and 0:0 draw vs. Guingamp in the recent games played on the road.
It is obvious that the visitors have better chances for a successful outcome of the forthcoming fight as the team demonstrates great competitive form and stays strong at away fields. The latest head-to-head between the rivals ended with 1:1 draw, meaning that the upcoming battle will become tough and complicated enough for both clubs with only one single goal is probably to decide the destiny of the clash.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.0 scored goals.
