Troyes Preview

Troyes have enjoyed a decent start to this Ligue 1 campaign, having lost just three of their opening nine league outings. Adama Niane’s stoppage-time goal in the 2-2 away draw at Lille last weekend managed to extend Troyes’ unbeaten to three games and the minnows now enter the fray high on confidence. They find themselves in a respectable 12th position in the league table tied on 12 points with Montpellier and Angers, just five points behind the top five. They looked very well-organized at the back throughout this campaign, but they haven’t been that prolific at the other end of the pitch. Troyes have only found the back of the net in nine occasions in nine rounds this season, which is one of the worst attacking records in the division. 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 nine league appearances. On home soil, Troyes were on a five-game winless streak across all competitions prior to their 2-1 win over Saint-Etienne in their most recent home league fixture. The bad news is that Troyes have lost three of their last four home meetings with Lyon in Ligue 1, scoring just two goals in this term.

Troyes Team News

Karim Azamoum is missing through suspension ahead of this clash.

Lyon Preview

Lyon, on the other hand, have only lost to Paris Saint Germain throughout this 2017/18 competitive season, but they have been involved in too many draws. They are currently on a five-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, including a 3-2 home victory over Monaco last weekend in Ligue 1. Furthermore, Les Gones followed this up with a narrow 1-2 away win at Everton in their Europa League midweek clash. This lifts them in second in the group E table with five points after three rounds, just two points behind the group leaders Atalanta. Regarding their Ligue 1 campaign, Lyon currently sit 6th in the standings tied on 16 points with the 7th-placed Bordeaux, just three points adrift of the second-placed Monaco. Lyon did well to score 20 goals in nine rounds so far this season, but their back line has let them down in this term. They have allowed 15 goals in nine games, which is the joint-worst defensive record in top ten. They have also struggled for fluency away from home, having won just once in their last five games across all competitions. The positive fact is that Lyon picked up wins in three of their last four visits to the Stade de l’Aube, keeping a clean sheet in two of these. Head-to-head, Lyon have won their last five meetings with Troyes across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in four of these.

Lyon Team News

Mariano Diaz and Ferland Mendy are both doubts ahead of this trip.
