Angers had locked horns with Rouen in the previous round, and despite of the away handicap, they managed to record a 1-4 victory. However, the fact that the former came from the fourth rung in French Football hierarchy probably played a big role in the result.

In addition, Angers have conceded two or more goals in three of the previous four meetings at this stadium, while they themselves have failed to score in three of the prior five encounters.

Moreover, Angers were winless in 12 of their last 17 overall fixtures this season, and are on a streak of three unbeaten games in front of the home crowd. 

On the other hand, Rennes were unbeaten in ten of their preceding twelve games, and had won an incredible nine of these. On the road, they remained invincible in five of the last six trips, and had won four of these.
