Angers and Montpellier will wrap up their Ligue 1 2021-22 campaign when they face off at Stade Raymond Kopa on Saturday night with kickoff at 22:00.
The two are separated by five points in the Ligue 1 standings with Montpellier sitting 13th on 43 points, while Angers sit 14th on 38 points. The two have nothing to fight for in this fixture with Montpellier set to finish 13 despite the results on Saturday, while Angers at worst would finish 16th.
We therefore expect a fun game with both sides enjoying little pressure in the tie. The two have however been in a poor forms recently with Angers winning just one of their last eight league matches, suffering four defeats in the run – including 1-0 defeat to Metz last time out; while Montpellier have failed to win any of their last eight league games, suffering six defeats in the run and are coming off back-to-back losses to Clermont and PSG.
They will both be looking to bounce back to winning ways as they both look to end the season in a style, although Montpellier will fancy their chances having won two of their last three Ligue 1 matches against Angers, claiming 4-1 victory in the two.
