Angers (@2.2) vs St Etienne (@3.6)

Our Prediction:

Angers will win

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

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.

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 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 St Etienne Head to Head Record

Angers vs St Etienne prediction comes ahead of French Ligue 1 sixth round. An interesting game is ahead of us, with Angers being strong favorites. For this game, I will try to provide the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on my analysis of these two teams. This game will be played on September 22nd, at the Stade Raymond Kopa in Angers, France.

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.

A week later he made his first start for les Pitchouns in a 2-0 loss to Saint Etienne. In 1996 Toulouse scouts spotted him and he soon joined the French team. Born in Toulouse on 23 July, 1988, Cheikh MBengue started his youth career at FA Roques. The 182-cm-tall left back made his Toulouse debut on 15 September, 2007 against Marseille, coming from the bench in the second half of the match.

It was a poor performance from Angers but they will be hoping that their home form can see them back to winning ways. Angers have picked up nine points from their first five matches which is a pretty good tally for a team that finished in the lower reaches of the table last season. Angers most recent match saw them lose 2-1 to Lille in a match where les Scostes created an xG of just 0.66.

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.

Speaking of the clubs European success, Saint Etienne made it to the European Cup (Champions League) final in 1976, but Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich proved to be a big catch for the French outfit. Anyhow, that is regarded as the clubs biggest success. It has to be noted that the likes of Michel Platini, Jacques Santini, Laurent Blanc and Aime Jacquet all played for Saint Etienne in the past.

Angers started this season in a good fashion as they have 9 points from 5 games played. In fact, we have seen both teams scoring in 3 of their previous 4 matches. These two teams have played a lot of games in their recent Head-to-Head history. They are a team with some flaws of course, as they have scored only 5 goals or one per game. By looking at all of this, I see Angers winning this one in front of their home supporters, due to the lack of scoring by their rivals. On the other side, St Etienne has points from 5 games and their goal difference is 5:8. Last time these two teams faced each other, the match was won by Angers 4:3. We usually see many goals being scored in their duels. Angers has conceded 9 and scored 9 goals this season.
