Angers vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 16th January 2021
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond Kopa.
Angers lost 3-0 in their last game away to Monaco and the club who have had an impressive start to the campaign are now in seventh place.
Angers have slipped 10 points behind league leaders Lyon but the clubs objectives are realistic and they are more aiming to finish in a European place. Currently they are only 3 points from that target.
Home form is a mixed affair with 2 wins from their last 3 games but 3 defeats from their last five and the club have won 4 games from 9 at home. It isn’t the worst record but they have only scored 9 goals at home and that could be a concern for the club in the long term.
PSG have won their first trophy of the season and it happened in midweek. It was the French Super Cup which was delayed this season and PSG beat bitter rivals Marseille 2-1 thanks to a late penalty from Neymar.
It was a significant win as it was Mauricio Pochettino’s first trophy with his new club and he has only been in Paris for two weeks. But the victory will give PSG a boost of confidence coming into this encounter.
We are in January and it is strange to think that PSG are not in 1st place. Instead they are 2nd behind Lyon but they are just 1 point behind and remain the favourites to win the league again.

Angers vs PSG: Prediction
PSG should have few problems to win this game but Angers have proved some good points this season and the club will not be easy to beat.
Indeed at home Angers have only had one poor game against PSG a few years ago losing 5-0 but usually these games are very close.
PSG are on a roll though and with a new coach in place they will have good vibes about them and we expect them to ease to victory here.
PSG are around 1.30 for the win so we will look into different markets. It is still to early to call how PSG will approach games under Pochettino but we have seen in the 3 games he has been in charge so far that the club become stronger as the games go on so we expect to see more goals in the 2nd half of this encounter.
