FOURTH-PLACED Angers travel to Niort – aiming to pile the pressure on the top three with the end of the campaign in sight.

Stephane Moulin’s side go into this one high in confidence following two wins and a draw from their last three away from the Stade Jean Bouin and will be desperate to maintain that positive form as a win could lift them into second place, depending on the results of Nantes and Guingamp.

Les Scoistes, who finished 11th in the top tier last season, have hit form at just the right time, and line up for this clash without a loss in their last half a dozen.

And 13 goals notched in that time shows just how lethal the visitors have been in the final third – a stat that will act as a warning to their hosts Niort here.

Pascal Gastien’s side have won just one of their last five on their own patch, and the pressure is on them to secure maximum points from this clash, as they sit in 15th place in the table – just a single point outside the drop zone.

Just one clean sheet from their last six suggests Les Chamois have been struggling at the back of late and that could be key in this fixture.

The hosts must make the most of their home advantage if they are to climb away from the danger area, especially with Le Mans – who occupy the last relegation place – winning their last outing, and possibly at the beginning of a resurgence.

Unfortunately for the Stade Rene Gillard side, I can’t see them getting any share of the spoils here, as Angers look to make their move into the top three.

    Great reasoning Milesy, might just follow you on this single. Lets just hope by 9pm were not looking back in Angers! (Sorry!)

    That looks a good call, trying to find a bet for tonight so might add this in somewhere

  3. Greg Browning 9 years ago

    John have had a good look through the rest of the games tonight. Have posted them on the other thread, most around evens or above! There’s definitely a treble or 4-fold to be had tonight!

  4. Sean Ireland 9 years ago

    Niorts away draw with the team at the top in their last game has put me off,has the look of a low scoring draw about it,so ill go on the unders market for safety.Now that ive predicted that Angers will likely score 4 or 5.

  5. Greg Browning 9 years ago

    Sean, Niort are the leagues draw specialists so you’ve got a valid point! Can understand why Milesey has tipped them though!

      PLAYERS IN FOCUS AFTER ROUND 2
      ——————————-

      Tiger Woods World Ranking: No. 1 | Scores: 70-71 (-3)
      Now before y’all start writing even more hate mail, remember, this grade is based on his previous performances only! That being said, three-putting the 18th for the first time in your career and only making a par at the 13th? After the 33 on the front nine you had this tournament by the throat. The field thanks you for letting them breathe.

      Rory McIlroy World Ranking: No. 2 | Scores: 72-70 (-2)
      Imagine what could have been on a day where McIlroy had only 25 putts. But only hitting nine greens in regulation? How bad do you want this jacket, Rory?

      Justin Rose World Ranking: No. 3 | Scores: 70-71 (-3)
      Hitting 15 greens in regulation is impressive, but 32 putts including two three-putts is just not gonna get it done around this place. That’s 63 putts in two days. Stay off the driving range and hang on the practice green instead.

      Luke Donald World Ranking: No. 4 | Scores: 71-72 (-1)
      It’s not your fault. This course is just too long for you. You hit two less greens (12) yet had two less putts (29) than on Thursday. And zero three-putts today is making me wonder how you were one-shot worse. Maybe you’ll get them tomorrow, or maybe you’ll just shoot even again … and that’s good enough.

      Brandt Snedeker World Ranking: No. 5 | Scores: 70-70 (-4)
      Two days in a row he’s hit 12 greens, but today he hit 13 of 14 fairways. One three-putt forced me to give him the minus. If his consistency remains, he should have a chance to contend going into Sunday.

      Louis Oosthuizen World Ranking: No. 6 | Scores: 74-76 (+6)
      How is it possible to hit the same amount of greens and have the same amount of putts as Round 1, yet shoot four shots worse? I don’t know, but Louis found a way to do it. Enjoy your weekend off, maybe the 14-year-old can give you some tips.

      Adam Scott World Ranking: No. 7 | Scores: 69-72 (-3)
      You hit three more fairways and one more green, yet the score was three shots worse? Only had one three-putt all day but added an extra three putts to your stat sheet (30 in Round 2). Tell me again how anchoring takes the nerves out of putting?

      Steve Stricker World Ranking: No. 8 | Scores: 73-70 (-1)
      Hit less fairways but hit more greens and have less putts than in the first round: That’s a recipe for success. He’s going to need a great Round 3 if he wants a shot, but at least he’s on the right track.

      Phil Mickelson World Ranking: No. 9 | Scores: 71-76 (+3)
      I would have only given you a ‘D’ but you asked them to make the course harder! Then you hit more fairways and less greens. The Department of “Careful What You Wish For” is on the phone. Shall I take a message?

      Matt Kuchar World Ranking: No. 10 | Scores: 68-75 (-1)
      The course got wet, the temperature dropped, and there was Kuchar … ready to go to the beach. Five fairways and eight greens led to a 3-over 75. Unless he can shoot 67-68 over the weekend, he’s doomed for another top-10.

      Bubba Watson World Ranking: No. 14 | Scores: 75-73 (+4)
      Five fairways in round 2? Maybe you should’ve brought the hovercraft. Well at least they can’t take the green jacket back. Six three putts in two days means there is no chance for a defense of your title. I just wish if you were going to tie the 14 year old kid y’all would have been paired together.

      Huner Mahan World Ranking: No. 21 | Scores: 76-82 (+14)
      An ‘F’ may actually be too good for you. You beat two 79-year old men, a Japanese fry cook and an English amateur. At least you tied the Walrus. 82?! Please tell me you played Friday with a broken back or left-handed. If not, go sit on a beach somewhere for two weeks. You need it.

      Jason Day World Ranking: No. 36 | Scores: 70-68 (-6)
      Shot an amazing round of 68 and by missing birdies on 17th and 18th greens he let the kid play the weekend! That’s not only good karma for Jason but for all of Australia. His 25 putts on the round were necessary after only hitting 11 greens, but when it’s your day … will it be his weekend?

      Marc Leishman World Ranking: No. 108 | Scores: 76-73 (-5)
      For someone who slept on the lead of a major, he played very steadily hitting 10 fairways and 10 greens with only one three-putt. Going 2-for-2 in sand saves let’s you know his nerves are holding steady on this gigantic stage.

      Fred Couples World Ranking: No. 503 | Scores: 68-71 (-5)
      Under normal circumstances, shooting 1-under at the Masters wouldn’t justify this grade. When a 53-year-old does it on Friday to put himself in position to win his second green jacket, this one coming 21 years later, is a no brainer.

      Tianlang Guan World Ranking: n/a | Scores: 73-75 (+4)
      His scorecard will say 3-over but we all know he shot 2-over. Fourteen years old with the poise of a tour veteran. I don’t even know a pro who would have taken that bogus penalty that gracefully. The cut doesn’t even matter — what this child did here should be praised even after my grandkids have passed away.

      Tiger Woods remains in the hunt for his first major since 2008 as Australian Jason Day headed into the third round of the Masters with a one-stroke lead.

      Day shot a four-under-par 68 to move to six under for the tournament with compatriot Marc Leishman and former winner Fred Couples tied for second.

      Woods carded 71 and is one of group of seven on three under.

      Guan Tianlang, 14, became the youngest player to make the cut at a major – he is on four over for the tournament.
