Montpellier got away with only one point from their previous three games, and they claimed it in a 2-2 draw with Metz. Then Clermont Foot proved too strong in a 2-1 defeat, just like PSG who won 0-4. Montpellier lost their previous four away matches.
Angers are among the three least scoring home teams in the Ligue 1 this season. They scored a mediocre 21 goals at the Stade Raymond Kopa, while also conceding 23.
