Match Preview

Visiting Bordeaux are searching for just their second Ligue 1 (L1) victory in ten rounds and will need to defeat Angers SCO in league football for the first time since the turn of the century to find it.
Angers are unbeaten in six league matches, although with the last five of those drawn they remain hovering above the relegation zone. Just one of seven clubs to have won two or fewer home matches this L1 season, the hosts will be keen to amend that quickly.
Once one of the slowest starting top-flight clubs at home (they had just one goal for, and four against, from their combined first-half performances by the end of October), Angers are correcting this trend, opening the scoring in their last three at home.
Bordeaux had to contend with a spate of draws during the latter part of 2018, as they compiled a six-game W1, D5, run (like Angers), before beginning 2019 with their second loss of the L1 campaign as they fell to top-four aspirants Nice.
The visitors could be most vulnerable early on. Bordeaux remain the only L1 side to have not scored a first-half away goal this season, and their -6 first-half away goal difference is the division’s worst.
Four of the last six league H2Hs (dating back to 2015) have been drawn, with Angers winning the remaining two at Bordeaux.
Players to watchStéphane Bahoken (Angers) has collected three goals in his last seven L1 appearances, while Jimmy Briand (Bordeaux) also has three in his last seven (in all competitions).
Stat attack: Both teams have scored in six of the nine competitive H2H meetings in the 21st century.
Angers’ last six L1 matches have all produced under 2.5 total goals.
Bordeaux have been in front at half-time on just three occasions this L1 season (half-time: W3, D8, L7).
