ANG vs LIL Dream11 : Angers look to make early strides in Ligue 1 2019-20 as the side look to consolidate their spot in the top 4 today
The way the 2019-20 sojourn of Ligue 1 has began, we might just be in for one of the most competitive and feisty seasons till date. Although it’s still relatively early to make any claims about how the league standings will eventually shape, with four sides placed of 9 points apiece, the league couldn’t have asked for a more riveting beginning.
And one side which finds itself involved in this narrative is Angers with the outfit currently occupying fourth place in the points tally with the three wins and one defeat to their name. The side are currently on a two match winning spree, having defeated Dijon 2-0 in their previous encounter, a clinical performance which has further manifested their titillating start to the newest season.
Elsewhere, their opponents of the night, Lille have had to suffer the aberrations of inconsistency in the league. With two wins and two defeats, the side are placed in 10th place, a position they ended up succumbing to after being put down 2-0 by Reims in their previous outing in the league. It was a result which further epitomised the vulnerability of the side’s defence, a qualm which Angers would be looking to capitalise on come today’s encounter.
ANG vs LIL Match Prediction
After being swept apart 6-0 by Lyon in gameweek 2, Angers have done extremely well for themselves, recovering for a defeat which could have easily unravelled their season perfectly. The side have gone onto score 5 goals in their next two matches but what has really exuded confidence is the two cleansheets they have registered as well, a proposition which holds them in good stead ahead of today’s encounter.
It’s their rediscovered stability at the back which should see them just about scram to a win today in a match which promises to be a tight affair. This will be decided by the one goal, one we see Angers getting in their kitty.
Probable Playing 11
- Yusuf Yazici was shown a red card in the previous encounter and will subsequently miss this one for Lille.
- The side could also be without Timothy Weah for this encounter with their being no news on his recovery from an ongoing injury issue.
- Bamba is questionable for Angers meanwhile with him yet to fully recover from his injury.

ANG vs LIL Dream11 Goal-Keeper
We are choosing Lille’s goal-keeper, Mike Maignan for this clash with the defender of pivotal importance to the side given the way their backline has been prone to falling apart at crucial junctures. In a time of such vulnerability, Mike has risen to the occasion, parrying away shots with consummate ease to keep his side in the fixture across their four matches and we envisage him picking up a slew of save points today as well.
Defenders for ANG vs LIL Dream11
Although Angers have been quite impressive at the back till now, the 6-0 trouncing the side received against Lyon is one which is still relatively new. It was a display which exposed the glaring weaknesses in the side’s defence, one prone to catapulting when encountering a stern attacking side.
And with Lyon bound to come hot out of the blocks in this one as they look to craft the opening goal today, a cleansheet for either side looks unlikely in this fixture. It’s a narrative which sees us opt with the bare minimum of three defenders for this match, going in with names who’ll not only contribute to their side’s defence but also fabricate some ravishing attacking plays for their side as well.
From Lyon we have decided to get in rightback Mehmet Zeki Celik while our duo from Angers constitutes of Rayan Ait Nouri and Vincent Manceau. Not only does the side heavily rely on its fullbacks to provide support to its wide attacking players and link up and lap with them but also gives them a free hand to express themselves inside the opposition’s side of the park.
ANG vs LIL Dream11 Midfielders
The most heavily packed segment of our side given how much these two sides rely on the players in this facet to seamlessly blend in attack and defence for them, we have gone in with a duo of the same narrative from Lille. With a goal against Etienne, CDM Jonathan Bamba is the first player we are choosing from the side due to the versatile skill set he has acquired as a player.
Along with him taking penalties for the side, his added role increases his value, making him an instant pick for us today. We are going to be accompanying him with Jonathan Ikone while from the opposition we have decided to incur in the services of an entire trivalent.
Scoring in the side’s 2-0 win over Dijon, rightwinger Farid El-Melali becomes the first player to line up our side from the outfit along with the formidable and dauntless two man partnership of Mathias Pereira Lage and Thomas Mangani.
ANG vs LIL Dream11 Strikers
The lone striker up the pitch comes in from either side with both of these players pivotal to converting the ample chances their sides will be crafting out for them. Rachid Alioui is our pick from Angers while Lille will be represented by Victor Osimhen for this encounter.
