With only one win in their last five league games, Angers SCO will be looking to collect any points when they host Rennes at the Stade Jean Bouin in the 24th round of the French Ligue 1.
Angers Need To Come Back
The hosts have been struggling in and around the relegation zone for the majority of the season. They have won only one game in their last five league games. Angers have collected a total of 4 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Ligue 1. Their last league match was against Toulouse away from home where they lost 4 4-0.
Angers are currently sitting in the 18th place in the league table. They have 23 points from 6 wins, 5 draws and 12 losses. The team scored 19 goals and conceded 32 since the start of the season.
Karl Toko Ekambi is yet to return from the Africa Cup of Nations, but Angers are looking closer to full fitness apart from their long-term absentees. Issa Cissokho started at right back in Sunday’s loss to Angers and the veteran should keep his place with Abdoulaye Bamba coming back from injury.
The Visitors Are In Trouble
Rennes have collected a total of 4 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in Ligue 1. Their last league match was against Bordeaux away from home where they drew 1-1.
Rennes are currently sitting in the 9th place in the league table. They have 31 points from 8 wins, 7 draws and 8 losses. They have scored 23 goals and conceded 27 since the start of the season.
Ramy Bensebaini replaced Pedro Mendes at the weekend but is himself a doubt for this encounter. Morgan Amalfitano was a surprise start on the right side of midfield against Bordeaux; the veteran performed well enough to suggest he keeps his place against Angers.
Head To Head
Rennes have won 3 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in November when the final score was 1-1 with two red cards show to Angers.
