Angers vs Lorient Prediction & Match Preview
Angers vs Lorient
French Ligue 1
Date: 1 January 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Raymond-Kopa (Angers).
Angers suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat in a massive game against AC Ajaccio on Wednesday afternoon.
They are about to have another affair of a similar significance on Sunday afternoon when Lorient come to visit Stade Raymond-Kopa.
Angers are still at the very foot of the Ligue 1 standings with 12 defeats in the inaugural 16 matches of the season.
They are six points below the safe zone and head coach Abdelaziz Bouhazama will face a very difficult task trying to prevent this group of players from dropping to the second-division football next year.
Angers have problems at both ends of the pitch. They have the league’s worst attack and defense at the same time according to the numbers.
The fact they have failed to find the net in two of the last three matches (including the friendlies) says enough.
Lorient won’t go into this match in much higher spirits either. They produced a dismal performance in the 0-2 defeat at the hands of Montpellier on Thursday afternoon.
Regis Le Bris’ men are now winless in six subsequent outings. Much like their counterparts, Lorient did not score a goal in two of the last three matches, including the friendly checks during the World Cup break.
This is a very important match for both teams who are trying to find a way out of the crisis. The hosts are in a much tougher situation and they simply can’t afford a defeat here.
