This game sees another set of struggling sides play each other to see who can survive the drop.

Lorient are currently 16th in the league table, just 1 point above the relegation zone.

If they lose this game, they could go down to 19th in the league table.

Their recent home form has been very good, as they have won their last 2 home games, scoring 6 goals in the process.

Angers are currently placed 14th in the league table, 5 points higher than their opponents.

They have 39 points from 34 games and they need just 1 win to guarantee them top flight safety this season.

They are currently on a run of 5 straight losses and if they don’t change this slide quickly, they may find themselves in the relegation zone by the end of the season.

Their away form is not good either, they have lost all of their last 3 games, conceding at least 2 goals in each of those fixtures.

A win in this game could see them move up to 12th position, and that is what will guarantee them top flight football next year.

Bookmakers make Lorient slight favourites to come out on top in this tie.
