Match Preview

A third loss in the last seven Ligue 1 (L1) games recently punctured Angers’ momentum, but their home form remains pristine. Indeed, this venue has delivered 79.17% of their points total, along with 78.95% of their goals. Five of their last six home L1 fixtures have produced under 2.5 total match goals, and the same can be said about each of their last five home L1 H2H matches.
Angers often leave it late, scoring six of 19 L1 goals after the 80th minute. That said, the team scoring first has bagged full points in nine of Angers’ 13 L1 matches to produce a winner. Furthermore, on six of the eight occasions a team has gone into the break in front, said team has ended up as a winner in Angers’ L1 games.
The visitors travel here with a four-match winning run in their wake. Much of this upsurge in form is down to their return of exactly two goals in five of their last six L1 matches, accounting for 50% of the season’s total to date. Marseille have also managed ten first-half cleansheets in 15 L1 matches, including the last four.
Marseille’s wins have been tight, with six of their eight L1 wins coming via a single goal margin with four ending 2-1. Like their hosts, six of eight occasions in Marseille’s L1 games saw the first-half winner go on to pick full points.
Players to watch: Rachid Alioui has been Angers’ last goal scorer in each of the three L1 games he netted, while Darío Benedetto has been Marseille’s first goalscorer in four of the five L1 matches he scored.
Stat attack: Angers have conceded just one second-half goal at home in L1 this campaign.
The last four L1 H2Hs have been scoring draws, with the equalizer coming at or beyond the 70th minute.
Eight of Marseille’s 11 away L1 goals against have come before the break.
