Angers welcome the visitors Nice in the French Ligue 1 – Round 25. The match will be held on Saturday, February, 16th, at the Stade Raymond-Kopa (Angers).
The hosting Angers are certainly solid. They can surprise on the road and may play equal against leaders in their own stadium. Sadly, they’ve started to attain wins only now. Those have been mostly over lower table sides. Angers can draw, they may avoid a loss, and they may also miss a victory. The hosts registered success in less than a third of their clashes, so, they righteously take a place in the middle of the standings. They don’t strive for survival, neither they claim serious tiers.

Nice’s latest fails may be attributed to the injuries, bad luck, tactics, mere crisis, or exhaustion, after all. The fact remains that they are one of the most consistent Ligue 1 teams, especially after the last two years when they had real mess in their attack and defense. It’s not for nothing that Nice play ‘to nil’ in most of their games, and their win over Lyon in the last round was not an accident. Patrick Vieira’s men still have chances to reach European places, but, in our view, the general manager looks to create a solid team for future instead. His players should be competitive not only within one or two seasons, this is, rather, a long-term objective. Given Nice’s present defense, allowing to Angers at least once would be strange, wouldn’t it?
Bookies’ 2.47 odds on the hosts are quite logical, that is, it is totally unclear if we can expect their win. As for Nice, the away pitch factor matters much… There will be no abundance of goals scored tomorrow. Either side would be fine with a level outcome. We believe the hosts are rather capable of brining one point as a minimum from their trip to the Stade Raymond-Kopa, same as they can gain another whitewash there.
Prediction for the match: Nice to win or Draw.
