Angers: Team News

The 34 rounds in French Ligue 1 are in the past already, and 39 points gained by Angers are placing them at 14th position, moving 7 points ahead of the kick-off zone, that include Bastia at the bottom, Nancy and Dijon crawling up with some chance to stay in the top tier. There are four matchdays left until the championship comes to the end; although there's no certainty that "Les Scoistes" are free of the risks of leaving the league yet, but these are minimal.

Within the France Ligue 1 competition, Angers have played out 17 games where they have won 7 of those, drawn on 5 occasions, as well as the same number of defeats so far - such stats looks desirable, however, Stephane Moulin's men are less skilled as their current opposite side, indeed.

Conclusion and Match Preview:

Olympique Lyon are travelling to Angers for a victory and nothing else. "The Weavers" can hardly be referred to visiting teams as the ace of their play, even though their situation in the standings forces the away side to scoop the whole set of points so that Bruno Genesio's team could get back into the four. Also, let's not forget Lyon's last round 1-2 loss to Monaco on their turf at "Parc Olympique Lyonnais", which hints they should be thirsty for getting satisfaction five days later they felt the bitter taste of that defeat.
