Soccer Betting Prediction Lille vs Angers
The starting position seems to be relatively clear, because this game can also be described as a match “home strength against away weakness”. Lille scored six of their previous points at home in Stade Pierre-Mauroy, while Angers lost their only away game of the season with a 0-0 draw against Lyon.
The roles seem to be clearly distributed and many points to a home win in this match. Should confirm this prediction between Lille and Angers, wait for the tip on the home win odds of just under 2.00.
Lille – Statistics & Current Form
When Christophe Galtier took over OSC Lille in December 2017, no-one would have thought it possible for the club to play near the Belgian border next week in the UEFA Champions League. Although Lille was for many years a candidate for the top five of Ligue 1, but nothing went together in the 2017/18 season.
Only gossamer could the Galtier-Elf cheer the league and sat in the last season to soaring. The point yield was almost doubled from 38 points to 75 points.
Above all the defensive was massively improved; overall, there were only 33 goals. The runner-up behind industry leader PSG was the biggest success since the sensational title win in the 2010/11 season.
Confirming these achievements is going to be a daunting task, with Nicolas Pepe, Thiago Mendes and Rafael Leao facing serious losses. For the triple load Lille has increased in width. The focus was on young, hungry players. King transfer was the obligation of Bayern-flop Renato Sanches, who hopes in Lille to boost his career.
Already last season Lille convinced with a 13-4-2 score. The two previous home games against Nantes and Galtier’s former club Saint Etienne were won sovereign. In foreign countries, however, there were two defeats without own goal. The best scorer is the former Wolfsburg Victor Osimhen, who scored four of the five goals for himself.
For the home game against Angers Galtier must give up the Turkish newcomer Yusuf Yazici due to a yellow-red-lock. Xeka and Timothy Weah (son of George Weah) are injured. Nevertheless, the squad has the necessary quality to fulfill the role of favorite. Due to the strength of the home side, Lille and Angers are tipped off by a goal from the home side.
Expected formation of Lille:
➤ Maignan – Bradaric, Djalo, Fonte, Celic – Sanches, Andre – Bamba, Ikone, Araujo – Osimhen

Angers – Statistics & Current Form
With nine points from four games are four teams at the top of the French Ligue 1. Definitely a surprise here can be called the SCO Angers. The team of long-term coach Stephane Moulin has proved to be extremely strong home. The draw gave the Underdog three home games in the first four rounds.
The three games in the Stade Raymond Kopa were able to win the black and white from the Department of Maine-et-Loire all. In each case, there were clear wins and in all three games was the tip on a handicap success of the home side the right decision.
More than clear was the only away game of the season so far. In Lyon, the Moulin Elf slipped into a 0-6 debacle. Last season, the Moulin Elf was still the king of the league. No fewer than 16 of the 38 league games ended in a division of points.
So far, there was only champagne or seltzer – and after the appearance in Lyon is not necessarily expected at the next CL participant points. Between Lille and Angers, we find the odds of less than 5.00 for the guests as far too low and see no value here.
Angers is a pretty experienced team in the days of youth delusion. Goalkeeper Ludovic Butelle is already 36 years old, captain Ismael Traore is already 33 and with players like Capelle, Mangani, Thomas or Manceau there are other Ü30 regulars. Angers has to renounce on Friday night on right-back Abdoulaye Bamba, injury due to the trip to Lille can not join.
Expected formation of Angers:
➤ Butelle – Ait Nouri, Thomas, Traore, Manceau – Santamaria, Mangani – Pereira Location, Capelle, El Melali – Alloui
