When Angers SCO was promoted to the Ligue 1 for the 2015/16 season, no one expected them to defy the odds in holding their own against the big boys. Angers SCO was the biggest surprise in the Ligue 1 this season for me simply because of how well they’ve been performing and it shows too: Angers is currently 3rd on the table with 31 points and on top of it, they’ve been very selfish in defense.
The French outfit has conceded the fewest goals per game in Europe’s top five leagues: 11 goals in 19 games. They have 11 clean sheets.
Stephane Moulin is doing a wonderful job, but I’ll like to see the team work on their goal difference. It’ll be refreshing if they finish in the Top 4 this season.
