Angers look to stop the rot as they face Montpellier at home. Angers have ten players missing through suspension or injury including the influential midfielder N'Doye. While Angers success after coming up from Ligue 2 ,ten games unbeaten in their first eleven, looks to have been a bit of a statistical enomaly . Angers will look to camara to bring the game to Montpellier, in the first game of the season angers won 2-0 away to Montpellier and the away side will want some form of revenge here especially with Montpellier struggling at the moment and in the midst of a relegation battle.
Montpellier will be taking this game extremely seriously as they look to get away from the relegation battle. Montpellier have some good players but their strength in depth is questionable as with most sides in the bottom half of ligue 1. Top scorer Ninga has not scored since December , Yatabare and Camara have picked up the slack somewhat but to be frank this isnt a team that looks likely to score alot of goals.
Taking a closer look at this game and we have to think that with Angers missing ten players then Montpellier have to be in a strong position to take advantage of that. Personally though I think angers recent form as well is another indicator that points towards Montpellier. Angers have lost four of their last five and there cant be much confidence there. Take the away side here and see if they cant make it two wins in a row for the first time since November.
