Lille vs Troyes Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Lille will be looking to put their Ligue 1 campaign back on track when they welcome Troyes at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Saturday evening. Lille suffered a heavy 0-4 home loss at the hands of Monaco prior to the International break, with Marcelo Bielsa’s men conceding two goals in each half. On the other hand, the newcomers Troyes managed a hard-fought 2-1 home win over Saint-Etienne last time out thanks to goals from Bryan Pele and Saif-Eddine Khaoui. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Troyes are the in-form team in this clash, but I think this is the perfect moment when Lille will get back to winning ways in Ligue 1. They have won three of their last four home meetings with Troyes across all competitions, conceding just once in the process. I’m not expecting goals however, as both sides looked poor going forward in this early part of the season.

Lille Preview

Lille picked up a comfortable 3-0 home win over Nantes in the opening round of the season, but they have failed to win another game since then. They have lost four and draw two of their last six games in Ligue 1, but the most worrying fact is that they have failed to score in five of these. Actually, scoring goals has been the main issue in this early part of the campaign as they hold the second joint-worst attacking record in the division with just four goals scored in seven rounds. All their goals have been scored by different players and the worrying thing is that their summer signing Anwar El-Ghazi has only scored once since his arrival. At home, Bielsa’s men are winless in three league games at the moment and have failed to score in each of these. The good news is that Lille have won three of their last four home meetings with Troyes across all competitions, keeping a clean sheet in two of these. However, Lille have failed to win in their most recent two meetings with Troyes in Ligue 1 in the 2015/16 season.

Lille Team News

Adama Soumaoro is out through an ACL injury, but Vincent Enyeama is back in training following his knee injury.

Troyes Preview

Troyes had an up and down start to the new Ligue 1 season, but they looked much better of late. The newcomers come into this clash on the back of two consecutive victories over Metz and Saint-Etienne, conceding just one goal in the process. Their form in this early part of the season has been a complete mixed bag, but they still find themselves in a respectable 9th spot in the standings with eleven points under their belts after eight rounds. Troyes haven’t been very prolific going forward throughout this campaign, but they looked decent at the back in this term, having conceded just seven goals in eight league games. Samuel Grandsir has been the standout player for Troyes in this early part of the season, helping the team with two goals and two assists in his eight league appearances. Troyes can count on their away form over the past six months, having lost just once in their last eight games across all competitions. Furthermore, Troyes did well to pick up a 1-3 victory at Lille in their most recent trip to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

Troyes Team News

Johann Obiang is a doubt, but Benjamin Nivet is missing through injury. In addition, Karim Azamoum is out through suspension.
