FRANCE LIGUE 2 ...........


I am looking to oppose Angers here, they are pretty strong at home where they have a 6-7-3 record, or at least do not lose too often, but since losing their cup semi final to PSG 3-1 here recently, appear to be having a problem with motivation. They have nothing left to play for in the league having already booked the needed 44 points and have not scored in their two Ligue 2 outings since that dream ending loss, they are very short of options across the park today with Riga, Renouard, Dore, Couturier and Auriac all missing this evening. Three of them took part in Angers last win and four started in the win before that, scoring two of the three goals, so important missing players for the hosts.

Vannes are in trouble, four points from safety, which with a dire goal difference is effectively five points and with games fast running out they will have no option but to hunt for maximum points tonight. They do not do draws on the road, where they are 4-0-12 but can take heart from a recent 1-0 win at Boulogne, who are always tough on home soil, that at least proves that they are capable of grinding out a win, which is good to know considering they have conceded a Ligue 2 high 31 goals away from the de la Rabine stadium this season. Normally we would back them at +1/2 ball, that option is of course open to you, but given their road record and need for all three points, I will reduce stakes slightly and opt for the glory and straight win bet.

0.75 units Vannes to win 4.2 + ..... still some 4.40 on offer if you shop around.... Unibet and the exchanges ( 4.60).

Good Luck.
