Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Angers and Auxerre go head to head at Stade Raymond-Kopa in the relegation six-pointer. Les Scoistes are stuck at the bottom with only nine points on their account, meaning that they are desperate to grab something from Sunday’s clash. Souleyman Doumbia misses out through suspension, while all Abdoulaye Bamba, Yahia Fofana, Ali Kalla, Ulrick Eneme-Ella, and Farid El Melali remain in the recovery room.
Christophe Pelissier’s troops, on the other hand, are five points behind the safe zone. Auxerre are determined to get back on course as well, and we do not believe that they will have a better chance than this to do so. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Pays de la Loire. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 2-2 draw.
Highlighted Team (Angers):
French Football Federation was founded in 1919, with French football club Angers being founded the same year. Les Scoistes returned to the French top flight at the end of the 2014/2015 season and they finished the 2015/2016 Ligue 1 campaign in ninth place in the standings.
Angers were having their ups and downs in the 2016/2017 season and, as a result, they finished 12th. Les Scoistes are well known for their black jerseys with white stripes, whilst the color of their away kits is white. Stade Raymond Kopa is the team’s home ground and the capacity of the stadium is 17.835.
The venues was opened back in 1912 and the stadium’s record attendance is 22.989 (April 26, 1969 vs. Olympique Marseille). Speaking of the club’s most notable players, we have to mention Fahid Ben Khalfallah, Vladica Kovacevic, Claudiu Keseru, Paul Alo’o, Amar Rouai and Cedric Daury. It has to be noted that the 2017/2018 season will be their 24th in the French top flight.
