AS Beziers vs Troyes
France – Ligue 2
Date: Friday, 18th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Stade de la Mediterranee (Beziers).
Beziers took birth with great ambitions after merging three different clubs. But a decade down the lane, if the question whether a step in the right direction was taken, is asked, the management will have to keep silent.
The team approaches this tie after a run of five consecutive losses. This Friday, disregarding the home advantage, which does not seem to matter much to this group of players, they do not have anything else to count on.
Troyes failed to stay in the Ligue 1 last season after finishing in the relegation zone. They began 2018-19 with the sole objective of getting back to the top-most tier in the country. But despite having good performances, they too are lagging behind from attaining their aim.

AS Beziers vs Troyes Prediction
The reverse fixture of this tie, which came at the beginning of the season, resulted in a win for Mathieu Chabert’s men. They desperately need points now, and they have the home advantage. But their recent run of games has been totally off the mark.
The team has just three wins in their last 19 games. Currently, they are on a seven-game winless run and a five-match losing streak. They have conceded two or more goals in all of their last five fixtures.
Rui Almeida’s men who will be thirsty for revenge will not take their opponents lightly this time. They know the opportunity they have gotten in their hands. The players will play it carefully and try not to concede.
Goals will be hard to come in this game, as either group will be looking for a safe win. I predict an away win, as their comparatively vast experience will make the difference in the tie. Go for a 0-1 win for the guests.
