Angers has 35 points this season, putting it four points up above the final relegation spot with three matches left to play. A win on Sunday might not necessarily lock the team into staying in Ligue 1, but it would go a long way toward doing so and would mean the team would just need St-Etienne to not win on Wednesday against Nice.
This would be the team’s worst showing since it returned to Ligue 1 in 2015 if it can’t move up past 15th. It would be the second year in a row that the team finished lower than in the previous campaign.
The team is coming off of a 2-0 loss to Monaco in its most recent match. The match would have been closer if not for an Abdoulaye Bamba own goal.
Predicted Angers starting XI: Thomas, Taroré, Ebosse, Bentaleb, Ounahi, Capelle, Doumbia, Bamba, Fulgini, Cho; Mandrea

Bordeaux is likely heading for relegation, but it isn’t set in stone yet. The team is four points behind 18th-place St-Etienne, an important spot because that team gets to head to a relegation playoff match, with a chance to stay in Ligue 1.
With three matches left, Bordeaux needs wins, and it also needs St-Étienne and teams like Lorient and Clermont Foot to lose as well to potentially help it claw its way out of the relegation zone entirely. But with just five wins all season and a minus-38 goal differential, that’ll be a tough ask.
Bordeaux has lost three of its last four matches, allowing 12 goals in those outings. It ends the season against Lorient, a team that is also near the bottom of the standings, and Brest.
Predicted Bordeaux starting XI: Guilavogui, Marcelo, Ahmedhodzic, Lacoux, Onana, Adli, Mensah, Dilrosun, Niang, Hwang; Costil
