Foot Predictions shows the Ligue 1 clash on Sunday between Angers and Nantes, including predictions, preview and possible lineups.
Annoys host Nantes in Ligue 1 on Sunday, with visitors looking for victory when trying to get out of the relegation zone.
Angers can reach the sixth position on the table, ensuring victory.
Despite performing above expectations so far this season, Angers were defeated 3-0 in Nice last weekend.
There was an element of luck about Nice’s form of victory, however, with Adrian UrseaThe team team had just two shots on goal over the 90 minutes. In fact, Angers got off to a bad start with Souleyman Doumbia scoring in addition to his own goalkeeper, before attacks from Myziane Maolida and Amine Gouiri ended a comfortable victory.
Stephane Moulin and his players should have more than enough credit in the bank to cancel the defeat and go to a home game against the relegation that threatened Nantes with the confidence of winning.
With best scorer Stephane Bahoken likely to play a role after recovering from their muscle injury, their chances of doing so can receive a huge boost.
Nantes have not won since defeating Lorient 2-0 at the beginning of November, leading to Raymond Domenechresignation earlier this week.
The former France coach was replaced by Antoine Kombouare, whose last stint as manager was brief in Toulouse, which ended in January 2020.
In the current form, the 57-year-old has a huge task ahead of him to keep Nantes in Ligue 1, with a 2-0 loss at home to Lille last weekend, leaving the team three points behind Lorient and safety having played another game.
However, the fact that Nantes have lost two games less than teams like Strasbourg, Lorient and Dijon shows that they are at least more difficult to defeat than their relegation rivals, with Kombouare tasked with turning draws into wins for survive. The squad is of sufficient quality to do so.
