SCO Angers vs Girondins Bordeaux begins 15.01.2019 at 19:00 CET
Angers didn’t win for considerable time or more precisely since mid-November when they defeated Montpellier. After that they drew five times in a row in the league, and lost to lower-division team in the League Cup. They were eliminated earlier from the French Cup so by the end of season they all need to worry just about the Ligue 1, where will most likely fight to survive. Series of draws brought nothing good and right now Angers has just three points more than teams in the drop zone.
All five draws had ended with small number of goals, where the last one with Amiens was goalless. It was a bad result to play 0-0 away with direct competitor and after elimination from the League Cup. They are surely sorry about the last match in the previous calendar year when just six minutes separate them from victory over Marseille. Manager Mouiln had made changes in the team in the previous round when he left on the bench Capelle, Mangani and Fulgini, while now he might again make new changes.
Probable lineups FC Angers: Butelle – A. Bamba, Thomas, I. Traore, Pavlovic, Manceau – Mangani, Santamaria – Manzala, Tait – Bahoken
Bordeaux had started the season competing in four different competitions but in the meantime it has been eliminated from two and right now all it left is the Ligue 1 and League Cup. They were firstly eliminated from the Europa League where they stated with three losses in a row so two triumphs at the end weren’t enough to reach the knockout stage. Regarding French Cups, interestingly enough they faced the same opponent in both Cups at the same time, La Havre, and they were eliminated from the French Cup after defeat of 1-0 at home, but they won the same rival in front of their fans in the League Cup by 1-0.
In the Ligue 1 Bordeaux is in crisis as it won just once in previous nine matches. After six-game winless streak they won St. Etienne at home 3-2, but after that they drew two times and lost once. They drew with Amiens at home, which is a weak achievement but still better than defeat they suffered in Nice last Saturday. They lost by 1-0, where the goal was received quite early but they were unable to equalise. Manager Bedouet had made a whole series of changes for match in Nice but to no avail. He will probably make new changes for this match.
Probable lineups Girondins Bordeaux: Costil – Sabaly, Kounde, Pablo, Poundje – Otavio, Sankhare, Lerager – Kalu, Kamano, Briand
