France Ligue 1

Kick-off 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Matmut-Atlantique
Angers holding the top of Ligue 1 have a big 5-0 goal after opening two games. Can they keep up the impressive form and pick up their third win the following Sunday afternoon away from Bordeaux?
Bordeaux and Angers finished last season of Ligue 1 side by side in the middle of the standings.
These two groups have launched the 2021/22 campaign differently.
The visitors got off to a fantastic start with a clean sheet and beat Strasbourg and Lyon.
New manager Gerald Baticle managed to find a winning streak right from the start of his reign in Angers.
His 3-4-1-2 formation worked well with two color openings. The most dangerous truth about these Angers members is that intentions can come from anywhere.
The visitors have conceded five goals in the first two innings and they also have no player with more than one goal this season.
Bordeaux, on the other hand, won 0-2 at home to the Clermont opener on the opening day.
They were in the best position to secure another victory last weekend, going 0-2 at half-time against Olympique Marseille at the Stade Velodrome.
However, PSG loanee Timothee Pembele introduced new life into the team leading to a goal just six minutes after arriving at Mexer at the start of the second half).
Remi Oudin followed suit with a quick equalizer as former Swiss national team coach Vladimir Petkovic got their headlines on time.
Bordeaux vs Angers Head to Head
Angers have a good record in this game (7 wins, 6 wins, and 4 wins), but they have won two previous seasons against Bordeaux.
Interestingly, Bordeaux won just one of their last six home games against Angers.
This team has scored three of the last four.
Bordeaux vs Angers Prediction
Angers have been more impressive than both sides in the first two colors. Bordeaux gave so little in the last third of their opening two openings that it wouldn’t surprise us to see visitors putting a third straight sheet here.
Angers ’win price is priced at 2.45, where you can grab even a high 3.00 chance for visitors to drop things off on Sundays.
Samuel Kalu fell four minutes into the game against Marseille – the boxing doctors before returning shortly after but he will undergo further tests.
He joins Paul Baysse in the Bordeaux recovery room, with long-term defender injured after suffering an ACL injury, and Josh Maja is still a doubt.
Farid El Melali looks set to miss Angers again from injury, but Enzo Ebosse is well fit to return to the bench for the second game of the season and could feature now.
Stephane Bahoken has put himself in contention for his start by performing two good performances off the bench, but the Baticle could opt against making any changes in what is currently a winning situation.
