Lyon were beaten 5-0 at Groupama Stadium, the last time that Angers played.

Also, with an unfortunate Angers that has not managed to win in their last League so far, Gerald Baticle’s men form is worryingly poor. They should solve their trend if they don’t want to occupy the lasts places in the League Table. With two points, they currently sit nineteenth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 0 wins, 4 losses and 2 draws having drawn two games and lost four matches.

Playing at home, Angers have drawn one game and lost two meetings.

Angers SCO will have 5 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Angers’s squad will likely be depleted of one of their key players when they start on Sunday, due to injury or illness.

Only a positive result will be acceptable for Oliver Dall’Oglio’s men, following their recent home defeat at the hands of Lille in their last match.

Also, league success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so three losses in five games would not make this a successful season for Montpellier. With a seventh position in the league and 3 wins, 3 losses and 0 draws, they currently have nine points in the League having won three fixtures and lost three meetings.

Playing away from home, Montpellier have won one game and lost one game.

A win in this fixture, would take Montpellier’s points from 9 to 12, so far this season.

Oliver Dall’Oglio will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of eight of his Montpellier players.
