Eighth placed Angers, are away to fourteenth placed Reims on Sunday.

It’s 19 points so far for Reims this season, going into this meeting

With Reims having secured all three points on their two previous outings, Oscar Garcia’s men will doubtless be looking to retain their run after this fixture.

Also, another fixture and another win for Reims, winning is becoming habitual for them and this is the mark of a team. They currently stand fourteenth in the League, with 19 points for a total of 4 wins, 5 losses and 7 draws having won four matches, drawn seven meetings, and lost five games.

Playing at home, Reims have won two fixtures, drawn three games, and lost two meetings.

Victory for Reims would take their points tally to 22 so far this season.

Reims are likely to be missing four of their key players when they start Sunday’s game, due to injury and illness.

Angers SCO go into this game with 22 points secured

Gerald Baticle will know at the end of this next match, whether Angers’s season is back on track, having lost their last fixture and drawn against RC Lens before that.

Also, with seven draws in 14 fixtures, Manager Gerald Baticle has plenty to ponder, going into the next match, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. Their position is eighth in the League and they have 22 points, that is, 5W, 4L and 7D having won five games, drawn seven meetings, and lost four fixtures.

Angers’ away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Reims. In the 8 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won one game, drawn six games, and lost one game.

A win in this fixture would take Angers SCO’s points to 25 in the League.

Angers are no strangers this season to illness and injury and Gerald Baticle is concerned that Sunday’s fixture could see him without three of his key players
