Angers welcome former champions Lyon at the wrong time.

They have lost 5 of their last 6 games and are currently on a run of 4 straight defeats.

They are currently 14th in the League table and look to have secured their survival for next season.

However, they will have to start winning as soon as possible to avoid being dragged into the relegation zone battle before the season ends.

Angers had a good home record before their last two games against Monaco and PSG.

Before those matches, they won 3 straight home matches, scoring at least 2 goals in each.

They will look to bounce back with a win in this game.

Lyon travel to 14th placed Angers with hopes of getting a win that would see them get back to winning ways and into the top four – at least to be able play in the Europa League next season.

They have not had the best season this year and have lost their last 2 matches.

They are currently 5th in the league table with 54 points from 33 games and they are out of the running for a Champions League place next season.

They still have hope to play in the Europa League.

Away from home Lyon have lost only 1 of their last 4 matches, and won their last away game 0-3 against Metz.
