Lyon though will be the big favourites to win this game against lowly Troyes especially with being at home. At their stadium Lyon have won 4 games in a row and have lost just two times all season.

Troyes gave themselves a big boost with a 3-1 win against Caen last weekend, that rare victory ended a 4 game losing streak. The club are still in the bottom three in 18th place but are just two points adrift of Toulouse. Currently Troyes would have to play a special play-off match with a Ligue 2 side to decide if they stay or get relegated.

The bad news for Troyes is that they are playing a fantastic team like Lyon and that they have the worst away record in the league where they have won just 8 points from a possible 51.

Lyon vs Troyes: Head to Head

  • Lyon has scored 9 goals against Troyes in the last 2 meetings
  • In the last 10 games Troyes has just 1 win which last happened in 2007
  • The last 3 Lyon wins has seen the highest scoring half occur in the 2nd half

Lyon vs Troyes: Prediction

Troyes will fight in this game as relegation looms closer but Lyon will fight too as their season is far from over. Lyon just have too much quality for Troyes and should, at home, ease to a comfortable victory, but we can see Troyes scoring a goal and making things difficult in the opening exchanges.

Lyon vs Troyes: Bet Tips

  • Both teams to score at 2.10
  • Troyes to score at 2.05
  • Correct score: Lyon to win 2-1, 3-1 or 4-2 at 10.00, 10.00 and 33.00 respectively.
