French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 25th February, 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK Time
Venue: Stade Jean Bouin, Angers.
Angers got a good win last weekend over Nancy 1-0 and now they remain at home again and the focus will be getting back to back wins. The recent win meant that the club has gone 3 games unbeaten and at home they haven’t lost for over two months.
They have set up with an attacking line up at home putting three up front and this has clearly been working for the club who adapt to a 4-3-3 system at Stade Jean Bouin.
Bastia in 19th are now four points from safety and even though they do have the chance to stay up for some the writing looks on the wall. Of course there are still moments of hope, last weekend they got a very respectable 1-1 draw over league leaders Monaco. But they were at home at least. Away from home they have lost their last 3 games in a row, conceding 7 goals.
