Our football match prediction:
Angers did well to come from to goals behind to share the spoils with Olympique Lyon before the international break, but they have not recorded a win in Ligue 1 since August 12, when they defeated Amiens on the road. Les Scoistes are on a six-match winless run in the league ahead of Saturday’s football game against Caen and they have been struggling at the back of late. Angers are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Patrice Garande’s team and we predict that they will find the net in the Stade Michel d’Ornano clash. Caen recorded five wins in previous six league fixtures and they want to give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend. Croatia international Ivan Santini has netted three goals in the Ligue 1 so far this season, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Taking everything into account, both teams are likely to score on Matchday 9.
Highligted Player (Stef Peeters):
Stef Peeters is a Belgian footballer who plays as a midfielder for Ligue 1 side Caen. After making only five appearances for Racing Genk (2011-2015) he was loaned to Sparta Rotterdam in 2013. At the end of the 2013/2014 season he signed a loan deal with fellow Dutch club MVV Maastricht and in 2015 he signed a permanent contract with the club. In 2016 Stef Peeters joined Sint-Truiden and it has to be noted that he scored five goals in 39 appearances for the Belgian club. The midfielder then (2017) moved to France to sign a four-year deal with Caen and he is going to wear No. 8 on his shirt in the 2017/2018 season. The Belgian player was born on February 9, 1992 in Meeuwen-Gruitrode, but he has yet to earn a cap for the Belgium national football team. Peeters’ main position is central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as an attacking midfielder as well. The left-footed footballer has a contract with Caen which expires on June 30, 2020.
