Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
After surviving Ajaccio in their last league match, Nice will look to keep on climbing the standings when they host Angers to their Allianz Riviera. Kasper Dolberg is no longer part of the team, and, in his absence, a man to watch in the home team will be Algeria international Andy Delort, who scored his third goal of the season at the weekend. His compatriot Youcef Atal is a major doubt, while Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey remains in the treatment room.
Les Scoistes, on the other hand, quickly recovered from a heavy 5-0 loss to Lyon, with the team beating Montpellier 2-1 on home soil. Angers, though, are not regarded as good travellers, which is the main reason why home win should be considered. Midfielder Ulrick Eneme-Ella should be the only absentee in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Morgan Schneiderlin):
Morgan Schneiderlin is a French football player born on 8th of November 1989 in Zellwiller. Schneiderlin started his football career for RC Strasbourg where he made his debut in 2006/2007 for the first team. After playing for 231 games for Southampton he made a transfer to Manchester United in summer 2015 for approximately 34 million euro.

Schneiderlin played for more than 10 games in the French national team and will play a lot more in the near future.
