The French Ligue 1 continues this midweek, and we have several interesting games set for Wednesday. PSG hosts Angers, Nantes is in Lyon, while Troyes meets with Marseille at home.
BetXchange will deliver a few previews in the several upcoming lines so stay tuned with us.
PSG VS Angers
The Saints had ten wins in a row throughout all the competitions before losing in Lens, 3-1, on the very first day of this year. After that, they recovered and beat Chateauroux 1-3 on the road in the Coupe de France, somewhat bouncing back following a nasty loss against Lens. Eleven of their last games were with three or more goals, and only two weren’t with both teams netting. That’s data that reveals what are PSG’s games like.
Angers also won in the Coupe de France but following the penalties. Their game against Strasbourg ended without goals, yet they needed to go through penalties to advance. Prior to that, Angers lost two in a row, in the Ligue 1, to Lorient 1-2 and against Ajaccio, 1-0. They are terrible on the road this year, with seven defeats in the past ten games, all but two of them with at least two goals conceded.
This should be an easy task for PSG, who will have its full squad at their disposal, and that’s why we expect to see them rolling over this rival. Our pick is PSG to win and cover a 2.5-goal handicap.
Nantes VS Lyon
The Canaries are barely above the relegation zone, having four points more than Brest, the first team under the red line. After beating Auxerre in the Ligue 1, 1-0, they managed to eliminate Virois on the road in Coupe de France, 0-2. This crew is without a loss at home for the last six games, beating three rivals and posting three draws, with five of those games ending with goals on both ends.
Lyon is highly inconsistent, which is why this unit isn’t near the Champions League zone, which is their target for this season. The Kids have been posting wins and losses subsequently throughout the entire year, and their record over the last ten events is four wins and defeats with two draws.
Our pick for this event is for both teams to score, as both Nantes at home and Lyon on the road, often both score and allow goals.
Troyes VS Marseille
Patrick Kisnorbo won with Troyes in Strasbourg 3-2, becoming the first Aussie head coach with a victory in a top-five European league. Though, a few days later, his team was eliminated from the Coupe de France against Lille, 2-0. Troyes has just two wins in the past 15 games and is without a goal score in four past five events.
Marseille is on the rise, with three wins in a row following the World Cup, and have five in a row counting in the game before the tournament in Qatar. What boosts their fans’ confidence is that strikers keep their performances at a high level, netting at least twice in the previous four wins. An especially impressive performance was at home against Toulouse, 6-1.
We are betting on the guests’ win in this event. They are clearly in better shape and a team with more quality in all the lines.
