Our prediction for this Coupe de la Ligue match:
Stade Credit Agricole de la Licorne will host Wednesday’s Coupe de la Ligue game between Amiens and Angers. Amiens are undefeated in previous four league fixtures, with the team holding Saint-Etienne to a draw on the road at the weekend. Les Licornes did well to beat star-studded Olympique Lyon in their last home game in the national championship and that is the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
Les Scoistes, on the other hand, failed to find the net in the previous three league fixtures and given their poor form, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Luka Elsner’s troops. Angers failed to score in the last two games in the French League Cup, which is yet another reason why we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed.
Highlighted Player (Chadrac Akolo):
Chadrac Akolo is a Congolese footballer who started his senior career at Sion. After scoring 18 goals in 58 appearances in the league for the Swiss outfit Akolo moved to Stuttgart in the summer of 2017, but you should know that he played for Neuxhatel Xamax in the 2015/2016 season (on loan) as well.
The African footballer was born in Kinshasa on April 1, 1995, but he has yet to make his debut for the DR Congo national football team. Akolo’s main position is right midfield, but he is capable of playing as both left midfielder and secondary striker as well.
The 172-cm-tall footballer is very quick and good on the ball and he is widely expected to make a great progress in years to come. Chadrac Akolo’s contract with Stuttgart expires on June 30, 2021. The Congolese player scored 15 goals in 34 appearances for Sion in the 2016/2017 Swiss Super League campaign.
Highlighted Team (Angers):
French Football Federation was founded in 1919, with French football club Angers being founded the same year. Les Scoistes returned to the French top flight at the end of the 2014/2015 season and they finished the 2015/2016 Ligue 1 campaign in ninth place in the standings.
Angers were having their ups and downs in the 2016/2017 season and, as a result, they finished 12th. Les Scoistes are well known for their black jerseys with white stripes, whilst the color of their away kits is white. Stade Raymond Kopa is the team’s home ground and the capacity of the stadium is 17.835.
The venues was opened back in 1912 and the stadium’s record attendance is 22.989 (April 26, 1969 vs. Olympique Marseille). Speaking of the club’s most notable players, we have to mention Fahid Ben Khalfallah, Vladica Kovacevic, Claudiu Keseru, Paul Alo’o, Amar Rouai and Cedric Daury. It has to be noted that the 2017/2018 season will be their 24th in the French top flight.
