Angers host Strasbourg at the Stade Raymond-Kopa on Saturday evening, with both sides looking to continue their impressive Ligue 1 campaign. Angers lost 0-1 at home at the hands of Guingamp at the weekend, despite the fact they had an overwhelming 61% ball possession and eleven goal attempts. On the contrary, Strasbourg won comfortably 3-0 at home against Dijon thanks to goals from Joia Nuno Da Costa, Lebo Mothiba and Jonas Martin. Follow all our predictions, odds, free bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Angers were on a four-game unbeaten run in Ligue 1 prior to their narrow 0-1 home loss at the hands of Guingamp at the weekend. The bad news is that Angers haven’t been such a great team on home soil this season, having won just once in four league games. The positive fact is that Angers are undefeated in their four home meetings with Strasbourg, winning two and drawing two in this term.
Strasbourg looked great of late, having lost just against an in-form Marseille in the last four league games. After their narrow 3-2 loss at the hands of OM last week, they bounced back with a solid 3-0 home victory against Dijon at the weekend. The negative thing is that Strasbourg have been terrible on the road over the past eight months, winning just two of their last 15 games across all competitions.
Strasbourg are the in-form team in this tie and we fancy them to grab a result here. Our betting tips and predictions would back Strasbourg Draw No Bet at odds 2.20.

Correct Score odds
Angers have been poor going forward of late, but the good news is they have been solid at the back. The bad news is that Angers have failed to score in their most recent two home league fixtures. On the flip side, Strasbourg have scored five goals on the road so far this season, including two past Marseille in their most recent trip. Our correct score fancies Strasbourg to win 1-0 at odds 8.50.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Four of Angers’ last five games in Ligue 1 have seen few than three goals. On the other hand, Strasbourg have scored plenty of goals of late, but they don’t tend to score much against Angers. However, they did well to score in their most recent two meetings with Angers in Ligue 1. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals at odds 1.61.

First Goalscorer odds
Joia Nuno Da Costa has scored another goal for Strasbourg last weekend and he is now the club’s top scorer with four goals in eight league appearances. Da Costa has now scored in three of Strasbourg’s last five games in Ligue 1 and we fancy him to add more to his tally here. Our first goalscorer prediction is Joia Nuno Da Costa at odds 7.50.
