Angers vs Lille build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
There aren’t too many teams that will have nothing but pride to play for on Ligue 1’s final day, but Angers are one of the few. Stephane Moulin’s men go into the final day of the season four points clear of the relegation play-off spot, happily watching on as the teams from 13th to 18th battle it out to secure their safety automatically. Angers’ safety comes despite the club being in very poor form, winning just one of their past six games with five defeats, including last time out against Marseille.
Unlike Angers, everything is on the line for Lille as they chase a first league title since 2010/11. Les Dogues have their destiny in their own hands and know a win will be enough to see them topple PSG, whom they lead by a solitary point. Lille have been excellent in Ligue 1 this season, losing just three of their 37 matches so far, and go into this game with five wins from their past seven matches including a 1-0 victory over PSG which put them in the driving seat. Last time out against Saint-Etienne, Lille missed the chance to enter the final weekend three points clear, held to a goalless draw, but Galtier’s men will be up for this one.
- Angers (vs Marseille): Bernardoni; Manceau, Thomas, Pavlovic, Capelle; Mangani, Bobichon; El Melali, Fulgini, Thioub; Diony.
- Lille (vs Saint-Etienne): Maignan; Celik, Fonte*, Botman, Mandava; Araujo, Soumare, Andre, Bamba; David, Yilmaz.
Enzo Ebosse and Lassana Coulibaly are out for Angers with an injury and suspension respectively. Sofiane Boufal, Ismael Traore, Abdoulaye Bamba, Ibrahim Amadou and Souleyman Doumbia are all doubts. Lille’s only absentee is a big one, with captain Jose Fonte suspended for an accumulation of yellow cards.

Players to watch:
- Angers: One of the Angers players that will be looking to spoil Lille’s party this weekend is Romain Thomas, who has history against the title-chasers. It was Thomas who scored twice in Angers’ 2-1 win over Lille earlier in the season, their second of three league defeats in total, grabbing two goals in the opening 10 minutes to give his side a lead they would not surrender. In total, Thomas has scored three goals against Lille, but it’s worth remembering he is actually a centre-back – so will be looking to cause them problems at both ends of the pitch.
- Lille: Attacking players such as Jonathan David and Burak Yilmaz will receive a lot of the plaudits if Lille do win the title against Angers, but one man who has been equally as important is Mike Maignan. The French goalkeeper has kept 21 clean sheets in Ligue 1 so far this season, more than any other goalkeeper. In fact, only former Monaco goalkeeper Jean-Luc Ettori (22 in 1989/90) has kept more in a single Ligue 1 campaign, meaning Maignan has a chance to equal history this weekend. Maignan’s clean sheet tally hasn’t just been about his solid defence either, with the Frenchman making 84 saves in Ligue 1 with a save percentage of 79.05 – the third-highest in the division.
