Angers vs Marseille
* Once again I made a "great" start with some unlucky picks where the teams I picked didn't score their chances or just played max at 50% like AZ or Salzburg. Well, it's time to turn the things and today I will play a lot of games most of them connected with France! It's your choice to follow them, one/two of them or just nothing and to skip them. Almost all of them will be connected with the number of goals!
The first one is from the French Ligue 1 between Angers and Marseille.
These two teams are 3rd and 2nd placed, so it's kind of a match between teams in good momentum form. Angers has 6 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss at home, so it will not be easy for Marseille to beat them as visitors, but still, none of these games is between Angers and teams with bigger potential like Lille, Lyon or PSG for example. Now they will have to face an opponent like Marseille, still without some of their best forwards like Bahoken and Ninga who are injured, but it's about a month or even more since they use Alioui and Mbock as main strikers. Their main force is the midfield line where they can rely on Thomas Mangani(scored twice in their last game against Marseille), Baptiste Santamaria and Angelo Fulgini. Good news for them is the returning of two important defenders for them- Ismael Traore and Rayan Nouri.
On the other side is Marseille. They are flying high right now with four wins in a row, two of them against Lyon and Lille with 2:1 at home. This team knows how to score goals even away from home, so I am fully confident they will create enough chances to score at least a goal against Angers, it depends on their players to turn them into goals. With players like Payet, Sanson, Benedetto, etc, they can do that easily, especially supported by the full-backs Bouna Sarr and Jordan Amavi. Only Thauvin is injured in their squad.
These two teams made only draws in the last two years(1:1 or 2:2) and when we know they are in good momentum being 2nd and 3rd in the table, I will pick that both teams will succeed to score tonight. Have a feeling Marseille is closer to the win, but still, the visitors are not very trustful playing away from home. So, I think the tradition has to continue making another game where both teams will find the back of the opponent's net.
