Match Preview

  • Coming into this game with two days extra rest than opponents Racing Strasbourg, Angers upset the odds on Friday night to draw at Saint-Étienne (0-0) and are now unbeaten in four of their last five Ligue 1 (L1) games (W3, D1, L1). What’s more, they enter this game as favourites, a tag which has seen them go unbeaten in six of eight L1 games so far this season (W5, D1, L2).
  • The Stade Raymond-Kopa is not exactly the top destination for goal-fuelled affairs as 15 of Angers’ last 18 home league games produced under 2.5 goals, whilst just five of those games saw both teams score (27.78%). The action here often comes early though, with seven of Angers’ nine conceded home league goals coming before HT(HT: W1, D3, L3).
  • Strasbourg came from behind twice to draw last time out (2-2). Notably, they have conceded first in 64.29% (nine) of their L1 games so far and went on to lose eight (D1, L8), only recovering a point for the first time over the weekend. Another tough test awaits here, as Strasbourg are winless in nine of 11 games as L1 outsiders this season (W2, D2, L7).
  • Unlike Angers at home, Strasbourg’s L1 away games have been entertaining spectacles for the most part: six of seven this term produced over 2.5 total goals (85.71%) whilst four saw over 3.5 (57.14%) – making for a league-high per-match average of 4.0 goals. Moreover, five of their seven away league games saw 1+ goals scored in both halves.
  • Players to watch: Super sub Pierrick Capelle has scored in second-half stoppage time in two of his last three Angers appearances. Meanwhile, Ludovic Ajorque scored and assisted beyond HT in Strasbourg’s last away game to register their joint-largest margin of victory since being promoted.
  • Hot stat: Angers manager Stéphane Moulin is unbeaten in five H2Hs with Strasbourg (W2, D3), and ten of 12 H2Hs with opposite number Thierry Laurey (W5, D5, L2).
