Nancy Preview

Nancy’s three-game undefeated run in Ligue 1 ended last weekend as they were thrashed 3-0 on the road at Marseille. The newcomers had only a 36% ball possession and just two shots on target in that match. Before this game, Angers managed to keep a clean sheet in each of their three Ligue 1 fixtures. Nancy currently stand in 16th spot in the league tied on 16 points with fellow newcomers Dijon, and just two points clear of the drop zone. Nancy have been pretty decent at the back so far this season, but they struggled to find the back of the net. They have only scored 12 goals in 16 rounds, which is the second joint worst offensive record in the division. Alou Diarra and Youssef Ait Bennasser are Nancy’s joint topscorers at the moment in time, scoring just two goals. Nancy’s recent home form has been impeccable as they have won the last four home fixtures in all competitions, scoring at least two goals in three of these. Furthermore, Nancy are unbeaten in their five home meetings with Angers in all competitions, conceding just three goals in the process.

Angers Preview

On the contrary, Angers have been struggling for consistency in Ligue 1 since the start of the season, winning five, drawing four and losing seven of their opening 16 league fixtures. They head into this tie off the back of a four-game winless streak in Ligue 1, including a 2-2 home draw against Lorient last weekend. The visitors took the lead in the 23rd minute, but Angers levelled the game three minutes later with Famara Diedhiou scoring from the spot. Cheikh N’Doye put Angers ahead in the 58th minute, but Lorient levelled the score eight minutes later, and both sides had to settle for a 2-2 draw. The worrying fact is that this was Lorient’s third game in a row in which they conceded two goals. Despite the recent struggle, Angers still sit in a comfortable 11th place in the Ligue 1 table tied on 19 points with the 12th-placed Montpellier, and just three points clear off their Saturday’s opponents. Scoring goals has been Angers’s biggest problem throughout this Ligue 1 campaign, as they have one of the worst offensive records in the division with just 15 goals scored in 16 rounds. However, Famara Diedhiou still had a decent start to the season, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with six goals in his 15 league appearances.

Guy Ronald N’dy Assembe and Michael Basser Chretien are both doubts, while Alou Diarra and Benoit Pedretti are both out through suspension.

Alexandre Letellier is a doubt, but Billy Ketkeophomphone is still out through a cruciate ligament injury. In addition, Vincent Manceau is missing through suspension.
