France: Ligue 1 – Matchday 7
Match start: 19:00 (GMT+2)
The main sensation of the last season Nice will host Angers in frames of the 7th round. Angers is gradually progressing if we speak about demonstrated game and squad reserve. Nice is far from being ideal at the beginning of new season but this is not a surprise bearing in mind serious changes in the club’s squad. Angers looks like ordinary and takes the middle line at the tournament bracket.
Lucien Favre took the team last season and had managed to progress Nice. Now he has the chance to take part at the Champions League. Unfortunately, Nice didn’t pass qualification stage and lost to strong Napoli. We have to mention squad changes – the club has lost such football players as Delabar, Belhanda and Eysseric this summer. Instead of lost players, Nice has gained a number of interesting freshers - Sneijder, Jallet, Makengo, Maximin and Mello. At the beginning of the championship Nice demonstrated rather poor results but the last matches were good for the team of Lucien Favre – 3 wins in 4 rounds and 8th position at the tournament bracket.
Angers at the transfer market is buying cheap football players who have some talents and free agents but rich football clubs are not interested in them. And this scheme works! Angers demonstrates good results and Stefan Mullen became a real legend between the coaches and the symbol that it is possible to achieve good results with middle level team. Now Angers takes 11th line but hasn’t managed to gain any win in 4 last rounds (3 draws and 1 defeat).
Last season Angers traditionally won over Nice during away match but that has happened only once. Now, despite several problems, Nice is much more stronger than Angers and is able to get positive results without any problems.
