Angers welcomes Lille in a match for the 4th round of the French Ligue 1. Angers will be back home in this competition trying to maintain the positive performances they are having in order to win their first match at home and stay as one of the seven undefeated teams. Also, they are in a good form right now, as they have 6 consecutive matches without a loss, and their defence didn’t concede in 4 of these matches. On the other side is Lille, a team with many absent players: Adama Soumaoro (CB), Thiago Mendes (DM), Kevin Malcuit (RB), Eric Bautheac (LW). It looks like that injuries and suspensions are mounting for Marcelo Bielsa’s side. Soumaoro was injured late last season and will be out until December. Their stats are getting worse and since the start of last season Lille’s goals against rate increases from exactly one when he’s started to 1.73 goals per game in the 15 matches he’s missed as they’ve been beaten 10 times. However, Angers are unbeaten so far, despite the fact that their last two have been on the road. Furthermore, they are great on individual plays and long range shots.
