LIGUE 2 ......


This is considered a derby by both clubs, with just 60km seperating the two and as always will again be a very keenly fought affair. This was always going to be a difficult season for both after each (arguably) overachieved last year, Angers started this camapign in similar fashion but their form has nosedived and they are without a win in four starts. Laval's game is based around a very solid defence, one which has earned them an incredible 23 draws from 46 Ligue 2 starts. They tried to get a little more expansive at the start of 2010-11, but that didn't really work out and they have reverted to the tried and tested formula which has served them so well, have again tightened up at the back, are unbeaten in three posting consecutive clean sheets including away at highflying and attack minded Boulogne. Angers have been a bit free and easy at home where they have yet to win and I see no reason for them to be so short against a team that is always very difficult to break down.

Laval + 0.5 1.91

Good Luck.
