All Angers SCO v Reims match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - as well as the best betting odds.
Angers SCO won’t want a repeat of their last result here following a 0-2 Ligue 1 loss in their previous game against Girondins de Bordeaux.
In that game, Angers SCO managed 56% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. At the other end, Girondins de Bordeaux got 7 attempts at goal with 7 on target. Josh Maja (25') and Toma Bašić (27') scored for Girondins de Bordeaux.
A recurring trait of recent Angers SCO games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
From their previous 6 matches before this one, in as many as 6 of them a bet on BTTS would've been a losing one. Such a pattern isn’t assured to be sustained into this match, though.
Going into this contest, Angers SCO have left without a victory over Stade de Reims in their last 11 league games.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Lille in Ligue 1 competition, Reims will be hoping to turn things around here.
For their opponents, LOSC Lille Métropole had 10 attempts at goal with 3 on target. Jonathan Bamba (32') scored for Lille.
In 5 of the previous six clashes featuring Reims, a comparatively low number of goals have been scored between them and opposing sides. The overall average goals scored per game during that spell works out to a meagre 1.83, with the average goals for Les rouges et blancs being 1.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Reims:
- remain unbeaten by Angers SCO in games played away from home for the previous 5 league games. A very decent away record against them.
- are unbeaten in their previous 3 league matches away from home.
- are without a win away from home in their last 4 league games.

Team News: Angers SCO
Angers SCO boss Stéphane Moulin will be grateful to have no fitness worries to speak of before this game with a completely injury-free squad ready to go.
It looks as if Les Scoïstes will probably line up in a 4-1-4-1 system, handing starts to Paul Bernardoni, Souleyman Doumbia, Romain Thomas, Ismael Traore, Abdoulaye Bamba, Baptiste Santamaria, Sada Thioub, Angelo Fulgini, Thomas Mangani, Farid El Melali and Wilfried Kanga Aka.
Team News: Reims
With a completely injury-free group to pick from, Reims boss David Guion does not have any fitness concerns to report coming into this clash.
It’s our belief that Les rouges et blancs will likely elect for a 4-2-3-1 formation, giving starts to Predrag Rajković, Dario Maresic, Wout Faes, Yunis Abdelhamid, Ghislain Nclomande Konan, Moreto Cassamá, Marshall Nyasha Munetsi, Dereck Kutesa, Xavier Chavalerin, Mathieu Cafaro and El Bilal Touré.
Our feeling is that Reims will need to push hard to breach the defence of this Angers SCO team who we reckon will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
We therefore fancy a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 win for Angers SCO at the end of the 90.
We’re expecting it to be that close.
