Caen vs Troyes Prediction
Caen is on a three-game unbeaten streak in their overall fixtures lately. Their previous encounter was on the road with Le Havre and it ended in a 1-1 draw. The Vikings have lost only four of their last ten matches in all major competitions.
Apart from the loss against AC Ajaccio at home last month, the home team has not lost in any of their last eight attempts at home in their schedule.
In sharp contrast, Troyes has lost their recent three away matches in the campaign. ESTAC has won only six of their 12 away fixtures so far in the league this season.
On the other hand, Troyes was back on the winning ways in their recent encounter but at home.
After four consecutive losses, out of which, three were on the road, the ESTAC managed a 2-0 win over Chateauroux at home.
With a massive 13 points lead over Caen, it is probable that visitors will probably fight back in the clash and take something out of it if possible. So, the chance of a draw is also in the cards.
Caen has shown improvement in the league, especially at home. In addition to that, Troyes have been dropping points in their away games. As such, the punters can go with Caen to be the favorites to win in the clash.
Since the visitor is in a better position in the league table, it is safer to go with a double chance in the game. Also, most of their recent h2h has seen both teams scoring in the clash. Henceforth, the punters can use BTTS as a safe bet in the match.
