Next Sunday at 3:00pm GMT, on matchday 10 of the Ligue 1, we will see Angers play RCSA at the Stade Raymond Kopa.

Nineteenth placed RCSA, are away to fourteenth placed Angers on Sunday.

This season’s Ligue 1 campaign, has so far seen Angers SCO achieve eight points

Whilst Angers need a positive result from this fixture, they cannot afford to throw caution to the wind. Another successive defeat for Le SCO after losing against Olympique de Marseille and Nice would represent a worrying sign of where they are just now.

Also, Gerald Baticle knows that a run of five losses in seven fixtures for his Angers side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. Their position is fourteenth in the League and they have eight points, that is, 2W, 5L and 2D having won two games, drawn two meetings, and lost five fixtures.

When Angers host RCSA, they will do so on the back of one win, one dart, and three losse on their own ground.

Angers SCO will have 11 points if they manage to secure a victory.

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

Returning to match-winning form, following a defeat is always a tough challenge, but that is what RCSA need now, after their loss to Rennes at Stade de La Meinau.

Also, with an unfortunate RCSA that has not managed to win in their last League so far, Julien Stephan’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. They currently stand nineteenth in the League, with five points for a total of 0 wins, 4 losses and 5 draws having drawn five meetings and lost four games.

RCSA have drawn two matches and lost two games of their four League matches playing away this season.

A victory for RC Strasburg would put them on 8 points.

RCSA are likely to be missing five of their key players when they start Sunday’s game, due to injury and illness.
