In the championship of France, after 8 rounds played, the hosts take 14th place in the table with 8 points in their assets. The club managed to score 9 goals and conceded 18.
After a winless six-match start to the Ligue 1 season, consecutive league victories over Montpellier (2-1) and Nice (1-0) allowed Angers to spend the international break outside the relegation zone.
Both victories came against strong teams and now the hosts have another big game to play as they take on Marseille.
The omens look good for Angers as the club have only lost one of the previous six top divisions held here which may have boosted confidence that Angers will take a third league win in a row.
Meanwhile, the visitors are in second position in Ligue 1 with 20 points. After the 8th round, the team managed to score 16 times and concede 5.
For Marseille, it will make for an impressive start to the league, although a (1-1) home draw against Rennes last time left them two points behind Ligue 1 leaders PSG.
The international break may have come at just the right time for the club, which had to play four games in 12 days due to their European obligations.
This extra recovery time should be an advantage for the visitors who are looking to extend their current run of two consecutive away victories in Ligue 1.
