Lorient vs Troyes Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Lorient will be aiming to overturn a one-goal deficit when they welcome Troyes at the Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir on Sunday night for the second leg of their promotion/relegation play-offs tie. Lorient were narrowly beaten 2-1 on the road at Troyes in midweek despite the fact that they had the better ball possession and more goalscoring opportunities. Troyes took the lead just before halftime through Stephane Darbion, but Majeed Waris leveled the game for Lorient with just eight minutes to go. The game seemed to be heading for a draw, but Benjamin Nivet scored a stoppage-time winner for Troyes to give his team an advantage ahead of this second leg. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

I think that Lorient are capable of overturning the one-goal deficit as their recent home form has been strong. Furthermore, Lorient have only lost once in their six home meetings with Troyes across all competitions, and are currently on a three-game unbeaten streak. Although, I’m also expecting Troyes to get on the scoresheet here as they managed to score three goals in each of their most recent two league trips.

Lorient Preview

Lorient’s 2-1 defeat at Troyes in midweek extended their winless streak across all competitions to five games. They haven’t played bad in this term, but their inability to find the back of the net has been the main reason for the struggle. Lorient have only scored three goals in their last five competitive fixtures, despite the fact that they had one of the best attacking records in the bottom half of the table during the regular Ligue 1 campaign. Benjamin Moukandjo and Majeed Waris have been Lorient’s most dangerous players in front of goal throughout the regular season, as the pair bagged 22 goals and six assists between them. Lorient should feel confident ahead of this tie as they controlled the first leg and they are now playing in front of their own fans. Lorient are currently on a four-game unbeaten streak at home, conceding just three goals in this term. Furthermore, Lorient are undefeated in their last three home meetings with Troyes in Ligue 1, scoring at least three goals in two of these. Overall, Troyes have only lost once in their six home games against Troyes across all competitions.

Lorient Team News

Sylvain Marveaux, Jeremie Aliadiere and Pierre-Yves Hamel are all doubts ahead of this tie.

Troyes Preview

Troyes’ form over the past two months has been amazing as they have only lost once in their last ten games across all competitions. Their 2-1 home win over Lorient in midweek was their 5th victory in a row, and their fourth consecutive game in which they managed to score at least two goals. Actually, Troyes were one of the Ligue 2’s top scorer during the regular season, scoring 59 goals in 38 rounds. Adama Niane was the league’s top scorer with 23 goals under his belt in his 23 league appearances. Away from home, Troyes haven’t enjoyed such a successful run of form over the past four months, registering four defeats, three wins and three draws in their last ten away games across all competitions. The positive thing is that Troyes have scored at least once in five of their last six competitive fixtures. Furthermore, Troyes are winless in their last three visits to the Stade Yves Allainmat - Le Moustoir, but the good news is that they have scored at least once in two of these. The most interesting fact is that Troyes were one of the teams that replaced Lorient in Ligue 1 two seasons ago.

Troyes Team News

There are no fresh injury concerns for Troyes ahead of this trip.
