Angers vs Caen
Coupe de France
Date: Wednesday, 1st February 2017
Kick-off: 17:00 UK
Venue: Stade Jean-Bouin.
Both teams will struggle a lot to save the elite class status at the end of the season. Angers managed to escape the danger zone with the weekend’s home win over Metz. The visitors hard their two players sent off, bur Angers failed to win by higher margin which best describes their crisis. This was their first win after nine consecutive unsuccessful attempts in Ligue 1. The home form is not quite impressive either for Stephane Moulin and his men, who lost two, drew two and won one out of last five league fixtures at Jean-Bouin.
Caen have had a roller-coaster season so far. Their hot and cold form could have best been shown at the start of the year since they scored six goals in consecutive wins over Sainte Genevieve (Coupe de France) and Lyon (Ligue 1) only to claim a single point from league clashes with Nantes and Bastia. The ones who have considered backing Caen to win this one should pay attention to the fact that they have been disastrous on the road, losing six on the bounce before playing a 1-1 draw with Bastia last weekend.
