Angers hold tightly in the middle
For Angers, this championship started optimistically, the team managed to be among the leaders of Ligue 1. Of course, they couldn’t compete, so the club slipped into the middle of the standings. The team is 12th in the league, 10 points clear of the relegation zone, with a game in hand. On the last matchday, Angers thrashed Troyes 2-1, with Mangani scoring the equalizer, both on penalties. The club thus broke their three-match unbeaten run. Seven players will miss this match, including four at the Africa Cup and three injured.
Saint-Etienne need a feat
Saint-Etienne are in an extremely difficult position at the moment, the team needs a feat to keep their place in Ligue 1. The team is last in the league, 8 points behind 17th in the league, with one game in hand. Their losing streak spans seven games in a row. In the last round they suffered a 0-1 defeat away to Lyon. Saint-Etienne are without nine players – five of whom are away to their African internationals.
In their first-round clash, Angers had every chance of an away win, but the club failed to hold on to a two-goal advantage, 2-2, with Saint-Etienne levelling in injury time.
It is difficult to predict the course of events when both clubs have a lot of personnel losses. Perhaps some reserves will get their chances, who will try to show their best. Ange have the minimum advantage, but we expect a fight for three results. A bet on a total of more than 2 goals looks quite working.
