  • Competition: Ligue 2
  • Date: Monday, 29th January 2024
  • Kickoff: 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
  • Venue: Matmut Atlantique (Bordeaux)

Once a stable Ligue 1 team, Bordeaux were relegated in the 2021/22 season and, due to financial problems, should have been demoted to the third tier. However, a few days before the start of the last season, the federation accepted their reconstruction plan and allowed them to compete in Ligue 2. The popular Girondins finished the season 3rd, just three points from the promotion. This season, even though they were considered to be one of the favorites to go up, the Girondins are 13th with 25 points, much closer to relegation spots than the promotion ones. 

Angers were relegated last year from Ligue 1 after eight seasons in the competition. This year, they are doing great in Ligue 2 and are surely one of the primary candidates for promotion. Right now, they hold the top spot with 43 points - seven away from the 3rd-placed Grenoble and one from the 2nd-placed Auxerre. According to bookies, Angers and Auxerre are big favorites to win the Ligue 2 title, with the odds around 3.0 and 2.5. 

Bordeaux vs Angers pick: Angers to win or draw

Bordeaux is not having a good season, and so far, have won just seven of 21 games - 33.3%. While at home, they are only slightly better, with a 40% win rate. Lately, at home, they have won just twice in the last nine games. But those wins came against one of the worst teams in the league, Valenciennes and Annecy. So, we do not trust them to beat the league's leader.

Angers lost just twice in the last 12 games in all competitions, with one of those losses being against a Ligue 1 team, Brest, in the Cup. Their only bad result in almost three months was against Bastia, when they were totally outplayed. But that is only one game, and we can give them a pass for that one. 

In the previous h2h game at Stade Raymond-Kopa, Angers won 2:0. Considering everything above, we believe the league's leader, Angers, will secure at least one point away from home at Matmut Atlantique Stadium.

Bordeaux team news

After a 3:1 vs Valenciennes, coach Albert Riera spoke to the media. He said they have to do better and wasn't happy with the team despite winning the game. "We lacked rhythm in the first half. We have to play faster," the coach added.

The club decided to sell central defender Stian Gregersen, and he will leave the club after the game vs Angers and join Atlanta United for a fee of around 2 million euros. The 28-year-old defender started in 57% of Bordeaux's games and was an important part of the rotation.

Angers team news

After a 3:2 win vs Quevilly Rouen, coach Alexandre Dujeux spoke to the media. He said they were eager to "put things back in place" after a really bad performance against Bastia. "Each time we had a match where we were less good, we tried to analyze as honestly as possible," the coach added. 

On 25th January, the club decided to sell Jean-Mattéo Bahoya to Eintracht Frankfurt for 8 million euros. The 18-year-old attacking winger was not one of the key players on the team and was mainly a backup player. His departure will not be too much of a problem for the team, at least in the short run. However, many football experts believe that Bahoya is an excellent prospect.
