Angers – Troyes Preview

  • Sitting near-enough the same distance between both the European places and the relegation zone, Angers could still finish this season in elation or disappointment. However, based on their Ligue 1 results so far (W6, D8, L6), 2021/22 looks more likely to end up as Angers’ seventh consecutive season finishing from ninth to 14th.
  • An average of 1.33 goals scored at home, but also 1.33 conceded, and subsequently a Ligue 1 home record of W4, D1, L4, shows Angers’ penchant for the middle ground is just as strong on home turf. Incredibly, their competitive H2H record against Troyes is perfectly balanced too (W11, D8, L11), although Angers have at least won after scoring first in the last two H2Hs held at the Stade Raymond-Kopa.
  • While Angers appear to have adopted a steady plod in Ligue 1, there should be more urgency from visiting Troyes who sit three points above the relegation places. The newly-promoted club created that gap thanks to an impressive 1-0 win at Montpellier in midweek – a side that beat Angers 4-1 last month – in what was Troyes’ fifth away game (W2, D1, L2) from ten this term in which they netted first.
  • However whilst impressive, that victory also summed up Troyes’ low-scoring form as it was their fifth consecutive Ligue 1 match where they scored one or no goals – the division’s joint-third longest current run. With Troyes averaging just one goal per Ligue 1 away H2H too, a clean sheet may be needed to secure their first top-flight H2H victory at Angers since 1976/77.
  • Players to watch: With Angers’ top scorer Sofiane Boufal participating in AFCON, they’ll hope Thomas Mangani can step up as they’re unbeaten when he’s netted this season (W2, D2), including in the reverse fixture (1-1). Xavier Chavalerin was Troyes’ hero at Montpellier. That winning goal was his sixth match opener from eight career Ligue 1 strikes.
  • Hot stat: Troyes have dropped a league-high 14 points from half-time winning positions.
