Preview and information about Angers vs Lens

Lens looking to pressure PSG

It's hard to find a quick solution to fix all the problems that are facing Angers. There is a good reason why they are the worst team in the league. They have allowed the most goals at 31, and seem to crumble under pressure. The only good thing is that the teams that are in front of them aren't doing any better. There is a four-point difference between Angers and Auxerre, who are the first team outside the relegation zone. Angers is averaging almost 2.5 conceded goals per game which are unsustainable level if they want to have a chance of keeping their Ligue 1 status. To make things worst, Angers has a lot of injury problems.

Angers predicted starting 11: Fofana, Valery, Hountondji, Amadou, Mendy, Capelle, Abdelli, Bentaleb, Ounahi, Salama, Hunou.

There aren't many people who believed that Lens could keep this kind of pressure at the top of Ligue 1 towards the leaders PSG. They finished seventh last season which was a good sign that things have come into place. But, with a third of the season completed, they are going strong with only one loss in 13 games. They also have the second-highest amount of wins at nine. PSG has eleven. Alongside the Parisiens, Lens has allowed only eight goals this season, and defending has thus become their main focus. With the defense part going strong, their offense can do more harm regularly. Lois Openda with seven and Florian Sotoca with six goals are the second-best striking duo in the league.

Lens predicted starting 11: Samba, Haidara, Danso, Gradit, Machado, Abdul Samed, Onana, Frankowski, Costa, Fofana, Said.

Team News:

Angers: Sofiane Boufal, Souleyman Doumbia, Ali Kalla, Lois Diony, and Ulrick Eneme-Ella are injured.
