Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Stade Raymond-Kopa will host Saturday’s football match between Angers and Lens, the two top-table sides. Angers aim to put an end to their four-game winless run, but they face a difficult task in the clash against Lens, who are enjoying a season to remember. Morocco international Alioui has been tested positive for coronavirus, and he is rated doubtful for the match, while Bahoken, Cabot, and Ebosse should all miss out with injuries.
The Yellow-Reds, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Dijon. Lens have already secured the Ligue 1 survival, and they are now on a quest to book their place in the Europa League. Given Angers’ anything but splendid form in February, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on the visiting team. Both Ganago and Traore are likely to miss the match through injuries.
