- Title : VIP Betting Tip - Angers vs. St. Etienne – Ligue 1
Record champions AS Saint-Étienne are still in free fall and are currently heading for the second division. A few days after the start of the second half of the season, "ASSE" is in last place in the table. To make matters worse, the club had to struggle with internal problems for long stretches of the current season.
Large investments were largely avoided at "ASSE" - even after the catastrophic first half of the season, mind you. In the winter transfer window, the relegation-threatened club only reinforced with free players due to financial concerns. A relegation of "ASSE" this season can therefore not be ruled out.
Will Baticle bridge the staffing worries?
As in the most recent home game against Troyes, head coach Gérald Baticle has to do without numerous key players in the catch-up game against "ASSE". In addition to the likes of Bahoken, Boufal, Ebosse and Ounahi, who have all been released for the Africa Cup of Nations 2022, Cho, Ould Khaled and Thomas are also unavailable on Wednesday night through injury.
It is therefore only natural that Baticle will not make any changes to the starting XI for the home game against AS Saint-Étienne. Especially since Angers SCO started the home game against “ESTAC” with the best possible starting line-up. The linchpin in the offensive game is currently Thomas Mangani, who leads the internal top scorer list with six goals as a midfielder.
Mangani completed a brace last week and was a key factor in the home win against Troyes. If the 34-year-old leads his team to the next win, betting odds of 2.20 for Tip 1 will be paid out in Angers vs. St. Etienne. However, betting on it involves a lot of risk: "Le SCO" has only won one of the last eleven home games against St. Etienne.
Estimated formation of Angers:
Petkovic - Mendy, Traore, Manceau - Bamba, Bentaleb, Mangani, Fulgini, Lage - Brahimi, Ninga
Five players at the Africa Cup of St. Etinne
Four players will miss the catch-up game against "Le SCO" due to injuries. To make matters worse, "ASSE" released a total of five players for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations. The failures on the offensive are particularly serious.
In addition to goalgetter Wahbi Khazri, the top scorer of "ASSE" with seven goals, top performers such as Bouanga, Neyou, Sow and Moukoudi are also missing. The result last weekend, in which “Les Verts” defied the big favorites from Lyon for long stretches, was all the more surprising.
Because they lacked the necessary offensive power, "ASSE" narrowly missed out on winning a point against Olympique Lyon. If St. Etienne builds on that on Wednesday evening, there is a realistic chance of scoring points against the upcoming opponents from Angers for the fourth time in a row.
Estimated formation of St. Etienne:
Green - Macon, Nade, Kolodziejczak, Silva - Camara, Gourna-Douath - Nordin, Aouchiche, Sako - Krasso
