Both teams to score

These teams have been struggling defensively in recent fixtures. The hosts failed to keep a clean sheet in the last six games, which includes five pre-season games. On the other hand, Angers kept five clean sheets in the last six games. Even though the last three meetings ended with no goals on both sides, we are backing both sides to find the net in the first game of the season because of their poor defending in recent games.

Strasbourg to win

Strasbourg and Angers seem to be at par in nearly everything. The hosts finished 15th last season while Angers finished 16th. A home advantage and the fact that Strasbourg hasn’t been as poor as Angers at the back is why a narrow victory for Strasbourg looks plausible and it comes with great odds on Betfred.

Over 2.5: Yes

We are also tipping more than two goals in this fixture. Our third pick is premised on the defensive records of both teams in recent games. While there were less than three goals in the last three meetings, this game comes at a time when both teams have had problems with their defences.

Match Preview: Can Strasbourg get Another Unbeaten Run against Angers this Season?

Strasbourg did not only go unbeaten against Angers last season but also kept clean sheets in both encounters. The last meeting was Strasbourg at home and it ended 0-0. Find out what we think about these teams in our game preview below.

Strasbourg

Strasbourg will look to do better this season after acquiring the services of Rennes head coach, Julie Stephan. Stephan spent two spells in Rennes, during which he averaged 1.55 points in 110 games. Going into the first game of the season, the new manager hopes to fix Strasbourg’s defence that leaked 58 goals last season, nine more than they scored. The hosts are also wary of the fact that they have only defeated Angers twice, got five draws and lost five times in the previous 12 encounters. Moreover, keeping an unbeaten record against Angers will be the top of the agenda for the new manager.

Angers

Angers conceded the same number of goals (58) as Strasbourg last season. However, they were not very good at scoring goals, only managing 40 last season. In the new season and with new players to bolster the team’s defence and attacking, head coach, Gerald Baticle hopes to get things right from day one. Gerald Baticle is the new Angers head coach after leaving Lyon’s under 19. He previously coached Brest in the 2008/09 season and averages 1.13 points in 23 games.
