Angers vs Rennes Prediction & Betting tips
On Wednesday evening, in heavy-handed Angers, it will compete in-house against Stade Rennes, who has been performing well lately. Does the team from the Loire region know how to turn the tide or can the visitors continue to rise in the left-hand row?
Of the last ten league matches, Stéphane Moulin’s team won only one, which led the team to the sixteenth place and was only outside the relegation zone on goal difference. Last season, the team was neatly twelfth and the final of the Coupe de France was reached, now Moulin must fear his job. The game of Les Scoists is as we are used to from Moulin, witness also the 62% possession and 82% arrived past game against Troyes, but less than twenty percent of the passes was sent by attackers. The problem is twofold: the team, which has a goal difference of -6 (17-23), creates too little and leaves too much space in the back. Counter-goals are often given away in the first half and the damage can not be repaired in the second half.
The match against Troyes who lost 3-0 was again the same story: after a dramatic first half, the squad took the break with two goals behind and then had to score another goal in the second half. A double change of Moulin (Angelo Fulgini for Lassana Coulibaly and Gilles Sunu for Billy Ketkeophomphone) did benefit the game in the second half, but did not make the team start to create chances. Should the first home victory be missed in the seventh home game of the season, then it may just be that the team actually lands in the relegation zone and the debt is shifted to Moulin.
The team that ended up low in the left row over the past three seasons, seems to be on the way again this season to another ranking in the middle class, but it did not look like that for a long time. The team now stands neatly ninth with eighteen points, but five rounds ago, the team had collected only six points from nine games. In the next three games, Sabri Lamouchi’s team will have the opportunity to build up a buffer with a view to the subsequent games against top clubs such as AS Monaco, PSG and Olympique Marseille.
Last weekend a difficult win was booked on Nantes: with 1-0 ahead in the second half and a man on the field, the Lamouchi men let the Nantes van Ranieri come alongside. A few minutes before the end of the game, Wahbi Khazri made his second goal of the game and thus won the first win under Lamouchi. Contrary to his predecessor Christian Gourcuff, Lamouchi uses a more aggressive and sometimes somewhat more aggressive playing style, something that until now resulted in a victory against Nantes and a defeat against Strasbourg. Paradoxically, the team played better against Strasbourg than against Nantes, but if there is less to win, the supporters of Les Rouges et Noirs are not grieving for the game.
