With a seventh position in the league and 7 wins, 5 losses and 2 draws, they currently have 23 points in the League having won seven meetings, drawn two games, and lost five fixtures.
When Lille host Angers, they will do so on the back of four wins, one dart, and two losse on their own ground.

Good Attacking Performance

This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Jonathan David (9), Jonathan Bamba (4), and Remy Cabella (3). Lille have shown a poor defensive display so far, having conceded 23 goals in their previous matches.
Lille’s squad will likely be depleted of two of their key players when they start on Sunday, due to injury or illness.
Struggling Angers SCO go to the Stade Pierre Mauroy on Sunday and hope for a positive result
It was a humbling defeat at the hands of RC Lens for Gerald Baticle’s men in their last match, they will be hoping to get something out of this game for sure.
Also, when you suffer 10 defeats in the last 12 matches, it should come as no surprise that your team is very much struggling at the bottom of the League. But that is the situation that Angers find themselves in. They currently stand twentieth in the League, with eight points for a total of 2 wins, 10 losses and 2 draws having won two meetings, drawn two fixtures, and lost 10 meetings.
With a poor record on the road, which amounts to one win, one dart, and four defeat, it is hard to predict a positive outcome for Angers as they travel once more.
A victory for Angers SCO would put them on 11 points.
Angers are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Gerald Baticle is concerned that Sunday’s fixture could see him without four of his key players
