Angers vs Nice Top Bets and Best Predictions

Nice will try to secure an important win after losing too many points in the last few weeks, and won't be happy with anything but a win against the worst team in Ligue 1.

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

Half-Time Nice

The first Angers vs Nice prediction is about the visiting team having the favorites tag. Angers are all but out of the league at this point of the season, with only ten points accumulated so far, they are having a torrid time in Ligue 1. Nice, on the other hand, still has some ambitions toward the end of the year, and they will be looking to get some goals going early in the match. Angers only has two wins this season, and one of those was earned against Nice, so the visiting team will be happy to return the favor.

Over 2.5 Goals

The odds for this bet are high, and there is a reason for that. Nice is the worst ‘over' team in the league with only eleven of those games played compared to 17 in the other direction. Nice also had only two matches with more than two goals scored from their last five outings. However, Angers is a top three over 2.5 goals team which is not a surprise considering that their defense is the worst in Ligue 1 with 63 conceded goals. Looking at the Angers vs Nice h2h record, three out of their last five matchups ended with more than two goals in the back of the net.

Angers vs Nice Lineups, Team News, and Preview

Angers

The home team doesn't have much to play for in the final stage of the season. They accumulated only ten points in 28 games, and are 14 points away from safety. They have lost five straight matches and are without a league win since September. This is probably the worst season in the history of this club. As if things couldn't get any worse, Angers has multiple injury issues: Amine Salama, Miha Blazic, Ilyes Chetti, Faouzi Ghoulam, Ali Kalla, and Ulrick Eneme-Ella won't be available to face Nice.

Possible lineup: Bernardoni, El Melali, Valery, Camara, Bamba, Doumbia, Capelle, Bentaleb, Mendy, Abdelli, Niane.

Nice

The team from Nice has lost the first two games of the calendar year, and since then went 13 straight games in all competitions without losing. Their form in the league has been impressive, but what troubles their fans is the fact that in their last five matches, they had four draw games which cost the team some important points in their fight to earn a place in Europe's competitions for next season. Sofiane Diop, Youcef Atal, and Antoine Mendy are injured for the visiting side.

Possible lineup: Schmeichel, Dante, Todibo, Rosario, Bard, Thuram, Boudaoui, Pepe, Ramsey, Laborde, Moffi.

Player to Watch: Terem Moffi

The big signing from Lorient in the January transfer window has kept scoring for his new club. Moffi is at 15 goals this season with a couple of assists on the record as well. The Nigerian center-forward will be in action against the worst team in the league angling to get another goal or two on his resume.
