Angers vs Bordeaux Team News

Once regarded as French giants, the tides have turned in Bordeaux as the formerly reputable club’s glory days are now long gone. They are regarded as one of the most successful Ligue 1 sides of all time, with a whopping six league titles to their name.

In addition to these successes, Les Girondins have lifted the Coupe de France trophy four times and Coupe de la Ligue thrice. Since clinching their last league title in 2009, Bordeaux’s decline has been very slow and steady.

Last term, they played so awfully throughout the season, finishing in the bottom-half of the standings. Struggling to make their mark, many called for the sack of erstwhile manager Paulo Sousa, who was having a hard time getting the best out of the pack.

With a familiar face in Jean Louis Gasset now at the helm, Les Girondins will be relishing a possible return to the business end of the log this season. The new gaffer was assistant to Laurent Blanc – the man who led Bordeaux to Ligue 1 success way back in 2009.

Gunning for a winning start to the new campaign, Bordeaux set out to take on minnows Nantes at the Matmut Atlantique. Even on home turf, Gasset’s men could not salvage a win as they were held to a frustrating goalless draw.

Meanwhile, Angers squeezed through a resilient Dijon side last weekend to record a narrow 1-0 win. In unfamiliar territory, Le SCO were always going to struggle. Traore’s first-half strike was all that separated both sides at the sound of the final whistle.

It was far from a stroll in the park for Angers as they had VAR to thank on an evening where two of Dijon’s strikes were ruled out for offside. As they take on a victory-thirsty Bordeaux side this Saturday, Les Scoistes will be hoping VAR comes to the rescue again.

They are on a brilliant home run, winning their previous two games at this venue. Also, they are one of the four teams that recorded victories in their opening-day fixtures. Against a tricky Bordeaux side, Angers will need more than luck to snatch a favorable result.
