Olympique Lyonnais and Angers go head-to-head at the Groupama Stadium for a clash the hosts have to win to boost their chances in the Champions League promotion race.
Two defeats in their last two Ligue 1 fixtures mean the hosts have to pick up all three points here to preserve a three-point lead over fourth-placed St. Etienne and secure their place in the Champions League qualifiers. Quite comfortable at home, Les Gones have collected 33 of a total of 56 of their league points at this venue (58.93%). Also, ten of Lyon’s 16 L1 triumphs have come at home, with nine of those wins saw Bruno Génésio’s men bagging 2+ match goals. A potential worry for their home fans could, however, be that Lyon have failed to preserve a clean slate in nine of their last ten home outings across all competitions, conceding over 1.5 goals per match four times in the process.
Meanwhile, unbeaten in their last six L1 fixtures (W1, D5), the visitors reside 12th in the table, and the outcome of this encounter won’t have much influence on their current league status. Eager to settle the score following a 2-1 defeat in the reversed fixture, Les Scoïstes go into this meeting off the back of a narrow 1-0 road win over Caen, which was the first time after four straight L1 away games that Stéphane Moulin’s players have managed to preserve a clean slate. Interestingly, Angers have scored precisely two goals per match on three of their previous five L1 road trips, failing to find the net once across those trips.
