Lille vs Troyes
Date: 14th October 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Teams who have combined the total of 11 goals in eight opening rounds of Ligue 1 are set to meet each other this Saturday at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Lille will be desperate to end the negative run and to pick up the second win of the campaign to escape the red zone, but it will be quite a challenge for them given Troyes’s fine run of form before the international break.
Les Dogues scored only a single goal in last six matches and they will come into the clash with Troyes on the back of a demolishing 0-4 defeat to the reigning champions Monaco in front of the home crowd.
The clash with Troyes will be of a huge significance for the Argentine manager Marcelo Bielsa who could even lose his job in case of a potential failure here.
Lille should have plenty of troubles ending a dismal attacking form since Troyes have been very easy to break down lately.
Jean Louis Garcia’s side allowed no more than two goals in last five matches and they celebrated consecutive wins over Metz and Saint-Etienne coming into the ninth round fixture with Lille.
Lille vs Troyes: Head to head
The teams have shared eight wins each among themselves in previous 22 H2H encounters.
Interestingly, each of last three meetings between the two sides saw the BTTS & Over 2.5 goals bets “come in”.
Lille vs Troyes: Prediction
The bookies have seriously underestimated the visiting side here pricing them up at 11/8 to leave Stade Pierre-Mauroy undefeated on Saturday.
Lille to score less than two goals seems to be a banker bet at the odds of 10/11, while the braver punters will clearly fancy Troyes to keep a clean sheet at the sky-high 4/1 odds.
