Angers vs Montpellier Today’s Football Prediction
Angers wants to get away from the red zone. Montpellier defends its 2nd place.
State of form
On a bad series of 5 games without success in Ligue 1, Angers fell to 15th place in the standings, 2 units in front of the relegation zone. After falling to Lyon in the 11th round (1-2), Stéphane Moulin’s players went on to lose Guingamp in the Coupe de la Ligue (0-0, 3-2 tab) and a new defeat in Saint -Etienne last Sunday, after a match of madness (4-3).
Undefeated since 11 games, Montpellier is now 2nd in the standings, tied with Lille, but ahead of goal-average. Surprised by Nantes in the Mosson League Cup last week (0-3), the men of Michel Der Zakarian immediately returned to the league in Ligue 1 against OM last weekend (3-0 ), achieving a third consecutive victory in the league.
The staff for Angers vs Montpellier
Angers will have to compose without his captain Traoré (suspended), the vice-captain Mangani, the Pajot executive, the potentially winger Manzala and the little used Gomez-Mancini, Ait-Nouri and Cisse (cover).
Montpellier recovers his stopper holder Pedro Mendes (end of suspension), but remains deprived of his middle replacing Dolly (injured).
