However, in the last head ‑ to ‑ head played at this stadium, in a match for the Club Friendlies, on 15‑08‑2020, Angers SCO won by (1‑0). The home / away condition deserves special attention, since although this is a game between 9th and 16th of the general classification, in fact this is a match between the 13th classified in home games and the 14th as a visitor.

The team arrives at this match after a home win against Club Franciscain by (5‑0). For the league, Angers won 11 points out of 30 possible points, after 3 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses in the last 10 home matches. Defensive solidity has not been their strong point, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 games in this competition. In 28 games in this competition, he only managed 2 turns on the scoreboard in the 13 games in which he suffered the first goal.

Angers comes motivated for this match after a 5-0 victory against Franciscain, advancing in this way to the next stage of the French Cup. Last in Ligue 1, the home team beat Metz 0-1. The home team chooses to play in a traditional 4-3-3, where the three most advanced players are: Angelo Fulgini, Sofiane Boufal and Loïs Diony. On the other hand, striker Stéphane Bahoken is one of the best scorers in this team with 5 goals scored. Coach Stéphane Moulin should not be able to count on Vincent Manceau, Mohamed Ali Cho, Sada Thioub, Jimmy Cabot, Rachid Alioui and Enzo Ebosse for being handed over to the medical department.

After 7 wins, 9 draws and 12 losses, the visiting team is in 16th position, having won 30 points. In the last match, they have lost at home against Lens by (2‑3), after in the previous match they lost away, in a game against Lorient, by (2‑1). This is a team little affected by the home factor, that is, they achieve practically the same points at home and away, with 14 goals scored and 21 goals conceded at home, against 15 goals scored and 21 conceded as a visitor. In the last 10 away matches, Saint Étienne has 3 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses, having won 11 points out of 30 possible. In matches played away in the league, the most frequent result at the end of the first 45 ‘was 0‑1, which occurred in 5 of their 14 games. Defensive solidity has not been their strong point, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 games, but their offense has scored regularly, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 games for this competition. In 28 games in this competition, he has never managed to turn the scoreboard in the 13 games in which he suffered the first goal.

Saint-Étienne comes motivated for this match after a 2-3 setback, receiving Lens, adding in the second consecutive defeat in this Ligue 1: the team’s goals were signed by Harold Moukoudi and Denis Bouanga. Like the “enemy” of this round, the visiting club usually plays in a 4-3-3, where the three men responsible for causing a panic in the opponent’s defense are Denis Bouanga, Kévin Monnet-Paquet and Charles Abi. Even playing in the Angers field, we hope that Saint-Étienne will adopt a more attacking stance, taking into account that it has more individual quality. Out of this game are Wahbi Khazri, Romain Hamouma, Alpha Sissoko and Yvann Macon, all injured, and Mathieu Debuchy, who is suspended.
