Troyes vs Brest French Ligue 1 Predictions and Match Preview by LeagueLane

Troyes vs Brest
French Ligue 1
Date: 19 March 2023, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de l’Aube (Troyes).

Troyes sit second from bottom in the Ligue 1 standings ahead of the clash against Brest who are three points above them in the safe zone.

Sunday’s 28th round clash at Stade de l’Aube thus has all the ingredients of a true relegation six-pointer. We expect huge tension and drama in and around the stadium, meaning we will hardly watch a beautiful game of football on the occasion.

The beauty factor is even lower if we know that both teams have been struggling badly to perform of late.

Troyes claimed just two points in the previous ten league matches and they are winless in eleven successive outings across competitions.

Their most recent failure came seven days ago when Patrick Kisnorbo’s men fell 2-0 away at Lorient. The Australian manager can be particularly worried about his team’s defensive showings because Troyes allowed two or more goals in six of the last seven games in the league.

Troyes also own the competition’s second-worst defensive record with 59 goals allowed in 27 outings.

This will be the music to the ears of Franck Honorat and Romain Del Castillo who combined for Brest’s only goal in the last weekend’s 1-2 home loss to sovereign leaders PSG.

Brest were moments away from snatching a point against mighty champions but Kylian Mbappe showed up with a match-winner in the 90th minute of the affair.

It was the fourth loss in the last five league outings for Brest but it is worth noting the visitors have shown improvements in the last two matches.

Troyes vs Brest Head-to-head

  • Brest lead the head to head tie by four wins going into the 21st encounter with Troyes.
  • Brest are also unbeaten in the last five meetings with Troyes, a streak that saw them win three and draw two.
  • Interestingly, we have seen goals at both ends in seven of the previous eight H2H clashes between these counterparts.

Troyes vs Brest Prediction

Brest left a much better impression in the previous two Ligue 1 rounds. They also have three wins and two draws in the last five head to head affairs against Troyes.

We will back the away win as the main pick at the odds of 2.45, while we also like the sky-high 6.00 odds offered for Franck Honorat (was on target last weekend against PSG) to score past one of the leakiest defensive lines in the league on Sunday.

Troyes vs Brest Betting Tips

  • Brest to win @ 2.45 (29/20)
  • Franck Honorat to score anytime @ 6.00 (5/1) odd.
