Our Prediction:

Angers will win

Angers – St Etienne Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 11:00

Their best player this season is Romain Hamouma, who already has 3 goals by his name. As it was already said, they have started this years campaign in a poor fashion, with 5 points from 5 games, which was enough for the 15h place. He is their vital part, and if they want something from this game, he will have to be on his level. Palencia and Honorat will not play in this game for them.

Despite being born in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, on August 20, 1996, the Angers midfielder represents France on the international stage. After scoring eight goals in 80 appearances for Valenciennes from 2015 to 2017, he moved to Angers before the start of the 2017/2018 Ligue 1 campaign and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Stade Raymond-Kopa. Angelo Fulgini scored his first ever goal for les Scoistes on August 6, 2017 in a 2-2 draw with Bordeaux.

Saint-tienne just dont see in the right state of mind at the moment to win this match and with Angers very good at home, we expect the hosts to come away with the three points.

Angers vs Saint Etienne Prediction

This Saint-tienne has not been the Saint-tienne team of last year though as they have struggled a lot under Ghislain Printant. Their most recent game was a defeat in Europe away to Gent where Saint offered little to nothing going forward. The new manager won his first match in charge but they have only managed to put together three losses and two draws since.

Angers will be aiming to keep their 100% record on home soil in the 2019/2020 Ligue 1 season intact when they host Saint-Etienne at their Stade Raymond-Kopa on Matchday 6. Les Scoistes have been scoring goals for fun at home ground at the start of the season and seeing that Saint-Etienne experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 2-2 draw with Toulouse, we are positive that the hosts are going to find the net in Sundays football match.

The venues was opened back in 1912 and the stadiums record attendance is 22.989 (April 26, 1969 vs. It has to be noted that the 2017/2018 season will be their 24th in the French top flight. Olympique Marseille). Speaking of the clubs most notable players, we have to mention Fahid Ben Khalfallah, Vladica Kovacevic, Claudiu Keseru, Paul Aloo, Amar Rouai and Cedric Daury.

This match can end in a home win, with under 2.5 goals scored. I looked at both teams forms and their recent Head-to-Head matchups when I was crafting my selection. With Angers having not a lot of problems creating goal-scoring opportunities, and their home crowd in front of them, I can see this game, based on my analysis, being easy to predict.

St Etienne Latest Team News

You should know that in their last meeting at Stade Raymond-Kopa in the French elite division the two teams played out a 1-1 draw. Les Verts are determined to put an end to their four-game winless run in the national championship and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score.

After winning their first game of the season they have won no games in their last 4 matches and have fallen to 16th place as a result. Saint Etienne have not started as well as pundits would have predicted at the beginning of the season. Their away form has been poor with two losses already and their last game ended in a 2-2 draw at home to Toulouse.

Their striker Farid El Melali scored 2 goals this season. Angers has won their last game played. Angers has some problems with injuries, as Bamba will not dress up for this game. They will need a lot from him in order to secure a good result here. The important thing is to say that only one of their last 5 those games had more than 3.5 goals so we could expect something similar here.

Saint-tienne can be a very good team and will take advantage of that if Angers arent careful. Angers have been very good for goals this season with nine scored but they really need to sure up their defence as theyve conceded nine times in their five matches so far. Angers have lost just one of their last twelve home matches with them currently on a run of three consecutive wins at the Stade Raymond-Kopa.

Jean-Louis Gasset will want more of the same and we thus expect an exciting contest at Stade Raymond-Kopa. Les Verts have been scoring numbers of goals along the way and only failed to produce in the final third in a 0-1 home loss to Montpellier along the way, finding the net 12 times in their last four games on the road.
