Reims vs Angers Predictions and Picks

Both teams have virtually completed their seasons when it comes to the final placement, what remains is to gain some extra experience from the lessons they have learned.

Check out the latest French Ligue predictions at our dedicated Ligue 1 betting tips page.

Over 2.5 Goals

Angers is the worst team in the league and is also tied for the lowest efficiency rating when it comes to defense. The team accumulated only 14 points while allowing 77 goals. Reims has done well for the bigger part of the season, and even though they weren't the most high-scoring team people would see, coach Will Still made it into something special with the way this team has played. For this Reims vs Angers prediction, with nothing to prove, win, or lose, going for goals makes all the sense in the world. It is worth noting that Reims is the second-best under 2.5 goals team in the league with three games out of their last five that had no more than two goals in the back of the net while Angers went five straight matches over the mark.

Both Teams to Score

Let it loose should be the motto for this Reims vs Angers match. Neither team has anything to play for in the remaining three games of the season, and especially with Reims who many saw as relegated at the beginning of the year, it is time to relax and enjoy what is left of the season. They had a good time for most of it even though they didn't have the best results in the last month or so with some tough losses at hand and the fatigue that was experienced throughout the squad. Interestingly, the home team only had one match out of the past five which covered the BTTS, and that was a game last week against one of the best defenses in Ligue 1, Lens. On the other side of things, Angers is currently on a five-game streak with continued matches where both teams got on the scoresheet.

Reims vs Angers Lineups, Match Information, Team Preview

Reims

There weren't many people who believed that Reims could be the hit of the season, but for some time they were just that. The way Will Still ran the team without a proper coaching license is a story of its own. There will be some changes to the squad during the summer months and the fans are wondering what is going to be left of their squad come next season. There are quite a few injured players for the home side: Thibault De Smet, Kamory Doumbia, Mitchell Van Bergen, Myziane Maolida, and Noah Jean Holm are out.

Provisional lineup: Diouf, Busi, Agbadou, Abdelhamid, Foket, Matusiwa, Cajuste, Munetsi, Flips, Ito, Balogun.

Angers

The visiting team lost five straight games and each one of those matches saw plenty of goals being scored. Angers has been the worst team in the league by a large margin and there aren't many positives that can be drawn out of this season. The team is having all sorts of health problems, and the injury list is long: Souleyman Doumbia, Faouzi Ghoulam, Pierrick Capelle, Farid El Melali, Amine Salama, Ilyes Chetti, Ali Kalla, Lois Diony, Ulrick Eneme-Ella are not available for the match this weekend.

Provisional lineup: Bernardoni, Thioub, Valery, Blazic, Bamba, Kalumba, Bentaleb, Mendy, Abdelli, Niane, Sima.

Player to Watch: Folarin Balogun

It will be interesting to see if Reims can bring back Folarin Balogun on another loan deal from Arsenal next season. The young English striker has done impressively well for the team this season scoring 19 league goals with three assists on his record as well.
