It has been a truly miserable campaign for Angers and they are running out of chances to end on something of a high. Their relegation was confirmed a long time ago having amassed just 15 points all season and claiming only three wins.
They played out a 2-2 draw with Reims in their latest contest with that result halting their losing streak at five matches. Junya Ito gave Reims the lead before Halid Sabanovic levelled just after half-time. Folarin Balogun restored Reims’ lead but it did not last long as Himad Abdelli equalised soon after to complete the scoring.
It was a respectable point on the road for Angers and they will be eager to build on that in their final Ligue 1 game on home soil. Two of their three wins this season have occurred on home soil while they have claimed nine of their 15 points at Stade Raymond-Kopa.
Troyes will be playing in Ligue 2 next season after a terrible run of form towards the back end of the season has sealed their fate. It is now exactly half a season’s worth of matches without a win for Troyes with their solid form to begin the campaign completely evading them as the season has progressed.
They ended a three-game losing streak by taking a point from their clash with Strasbourg last time out. Habib Diarra gave Strasbourg the lead and things went from bad to worse for Troyes as goalkeeper Gauthier Gallon was shown a red card just before the hour mark but to their credit, the home side fought back and claimed a draw thanks to Rony Lopes, soon after Strasbourg had also been reduced to 10 men.
Their form has just not been good enough across the board this season but you have to go back to the 2nd January since their last win on the road. That is a run of nine league matches and all but one of those have ended in defeat.
These two teams will be competing in Ligue 2 next season after producing wretched performances for much of the campaign. There is nothing but pride on the line here but many would argue that time has already been and gone. The recent efforts of the pair leave a lot to be desired but they did both manage to claim a draw last time out and a share of the spoils in this encounter would not be a surprise.
