Match Preview

  • Indifferent five-game Ligue 1 (L1) form (W1, D3, L1) which saw Angers fail to score in three of those matches, looks like convincing evidence that their season is petering out. Sitting in tenth place, and with an average of just 1.10 goals scored per match this top-flight campaign, it seems unlikely they’ll provide fans with something unexpected here.
  • In fact after picking up less than half of their points at home (42.50%), and currently sporting a three-game winless league streak here (D1, L2), even gaining a point may be a difficult task. However Angers did turn two goalless first halves into a 1-0 victory in the last two home H2Hs, each time thanks to a goal between the 65th and 70th minute!
  • Sitting just a few points off the last European spot, Montpellier will feel they still have something to play for, and bring a useful ten-game unbeaten competitive run into this clash (W6, D4). Impressively, they came back to secure points after conceding first in their last three L1 matches (W1, D2), but have only twice avoided defeat from nine occasions this top-flight campaign in which they trailed at HT (W1, D1, L7).
  • However a 78.57% unbeaten rate on the road this L1 season (W5, D6, L3) shows they should be tough to beat here. After winning 4-1 in the reverse fixture they have added incentive too, as the last time Montpellier did the league double over Angers was back in 2004/05 when both these clubs were residing in the second tier.
  • Players to watch: Thomas Mangani has scored a first-half penalty in two of Angers’ last three L1 home games, while Andy Delort scored a brace in the reverse fixture and was Montpellier’s first goalscorer in two of his last three away appearances.
  • Hot stat: Three of Montpellier’s last four matches saw both teams score before HT.
