Lille vs Angers Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Lille are tipped to have the upper hand when they face Angers in a French Ligue 1 fixture at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. The hosts often do their best work at home and are backed to secure victory over Angers who struggle on their travels.

Lille OSC Form & Team News


Lille are coming off a 2-0 defeat at Reims in their last Ligue 1 fixture before the international break. They struggled against the stubborn hosts and conceded twice in the second half. 

Les Dogues often do their best work in front of their fans having secured comfortable victories in their two home matches this season. Christophe Galtier's men have also won their last six home matches stretching back to last season and are good value for another victory on Friday at odds of 1.83.

Victor Osimhen has been the standout player for Lille with four goals this season. The Nigerian striker is likely to lead the line on Friday with the impressive Jonathan Bamba providing support.

Angers SCO Form & Team News 


Angers ran out 2-0 winners at home against Dijon last time out in Ligue 1. They took the lead five minutes after the break when Glody Ngonda put through his own net before Farid El Melali sealed the win on 71 minutes.

Stephane Moulin's men also do their best work at home and often struggle on the road. They have lost three of their last four away matches in Ligue 1 and are priced at 4.33 by the bookies for an unlikely win on Friday while a draw is set at odds of 3.50.

Angers’poor form on the road means they have failed to score in their last two away matches. Rachid Alioui is the man often tasked with leading the line but the striker has found the net just once this season.

Lille vs Angers Head to Head 


Angers have a 6-3 advantage with three draws from 12 previous matches against Lille. Friday’s hosts ran out 5-0 winners in the corresponding fixture last season with Jonathan Bamba and Jonathan Ikone getting on the score sheet.

Lille vs Angers Match Up


Victor Osimhen will be the one to watch for Lille on Friday following an impressive start to life in Ligue 1. All four of the striker’s goals have come at home and he should combine well with Jonathan Bamba to get the better of the Anger defence.

Angers often look to Rachid Alioui to provide the spark in attack but the striker has looked off colour in recent matches. He is likely to struggle against a Lille defence that has conceded just two goals in their last six home matches.
