Venue: Stade du Roudourou (Guingamp).
Two struggling Ligue 1 sides will face each other in the Round-of-16 of the French League Cup on Wednesday.
Guingamp are on the bottom of the league table with only one win. The team coached by Antoine Kombouare had the worst possible start to the season when they lost 6 games on the trot.
The team from Guingamp are presently on a 3 game draw streak. Their only win in the season came against the same opponents for Wednesday, Angers in the round 8 of the league. Angers lost that home fixture by a goal, scored in the stroke of half time by Benezet.
The hosts are winless at home this season with 3 defeats. They are also struggling to find the back of the net, scoring just 7 goals in 11 matches this season.
Angers are winless in 4 straight games in the league with 2 losses and draws each. They also had a bad start to the season with 3 straight defeats and then the win against Lille got them going. But dropping points recently has been a major setback.
Stephane Moulin’s team started their away campaign with 2 consecutive losses. But they came back to winning ways with 2 wins and a draw in the matches that followed. At present they are unbeaten in 3 away games.
It’s a fixture that has been played many times across various competitions and both the teams will be aiming to improve their records against each other.
