Angers SCO look to continue their fairy-tale stroll in the Ligue 1 as they prepare to play hosts to EA Guingamp at Stade Jean Bouin this Saturday.

Angers SCO have been the surprise package of the 2015-16 Ligue 1 campaign along with SM Caen. Olivier Auriac’s side is second in the league, 5 point adrift of league toppers, Paris Saint-Germain. The hosts have surprised everyone with a string of impressive performances this season. After securing promotion to the top flight for French football, many were expecting them to struggle to adapt to the quality of football in Ligue 1. However, Angers have showed great character and are reaping the reward for that.

At the end of gameweek 10, Angers are sitting comfortably in the second spot in the league table with 21 points to their name. They have won 6 of their 10 games, drawing 3 while losing just once so far this season. The hosts are entering in Saturday’s game on the back of an impressive run. They haven’t lost a single game in their last five league outings and with one draw from those games, have 4 wins out of last 5 games prior to this match. Both Nicolas Benezet and Sloan Privat have score three goals to their names for Angers in Ligue 1 this season and the bosses at the club would be expecting more of the same from the duo when the team hosts EA Guingamp.

EA Guingamp are currently 11th in the league with 14 points out of the possible 30 this season. With 4 wins and 4 losses, the visitors are looking for a consistent run of form as they prepare to lock horns with high flying Angers SCO at Stade Jean Bouin this Saturday. Les Costarmoricains have performed relatively better in the last few games after a slow start to the 2015-16 Ligue 1 campaign but lack of consistency has got the club's coach worried.

Jocelyn Gourvennec would be hoping for at least a point from the weekend encounter but getting something out of the game against a side that is flying high on confidence at the moment would be really tough for Guingamp. The visitors are coming in this game with 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat in their last 5 Ligue 1 games. It would be the first time the two teams would be facing each other in the French top flight. The last time these two teams met was back in 2012 in Ligue 2 when EA Guingamp won the game 2-1.
