Nice vs Angers Odds and Free Bets

Since they were acquired by British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe, the ambitions of Nice FC have been raising. Last season they finished 5th, later in the summer they became victims of their success when they lost coach Christophe Galtier who went to PSG. The club owners rehired Lucien Favre, but this season they struggled to beat the expectations, at least for the first seven games of the season. At this time, Angers seems like a perfect opponent for Nice.

Nice to Win

Nice's attack has been abysmal this season scoring only 5 goals in 7 matches. Nice has accumulated only two wins so far this season and they lay at 12th position in Ligue 1, already 12 points behind leaders PSG and Marseille. Even though they spent £70m this summer, they failed to replace striker Amine Gouiri who was sold to Rennes. So far, his replacements haven't fulfilled their promise of scoring goals. However, a team like Angers will come at a perfect time for the club. Nice has won four straight games against Angers.

Over 2.5 Goals

Even though Nice has scored only 5 goals this season, the defending of Angers team has been horrible, to say the least. They have conceded 18 goals already this season, and each of their last five games went over 2.5 goals. Angers has the worst defense in the entire league at this point of the season with only one win to their name, in the last round, they beat Montpellier 2-1.

Expensive signings need to step up for Nice

Amine Gouiri scored 28 goals in 89 matches for Nice before being sold to Rennes, players who were supposed to replace his goals like Nicolas Pepe, Gaetan Laborde, and Sofiane Diop failed to achieve that goal. The team managed by Lucien Favre will need them to start firing in front of the opposition goal if they want to save this already faltering season.

Nice predicted starting lineup: Schmeichel, Lotomba, Todibo, Dante, Bard, Pepe, Beka Beka, Thuram, Diop, Laborde, Delort.

Angers don't come close to the level of financial power that Nice has at it’s disposal, and that showed in their transfer market activity this summer. They spent only £6m while selling their prized asset Momo Cho to Real Sociedad. They haven't found any credible reinforcements in defense which shows in their horrible stat line this season.

Angers predicted starting lineup: Fofana, Doumbia, Blazic, Hountondji, Valery, Bentaleb, Mendy, Boufal, Hunou, Ounahi, Sima.

Team News

Nice: Aaron Ramsey is missing due to injury.

Angers: Ulrick Eneme-Ella is injured.
