Lyon vs Troyes
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 6th May 2018
Kick off at 15:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: Stade Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon).
Lyon have been in fantastic form having won their last 5 games and are at this moment the best side in France. They have been able to charge past the stuttering Monaco and are now in 2nd place which would qualify them for next seasons Champions League. Of course only 1 point is the difference between them and 3rd place Monaco so there is still plenty to play for.
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.
