Troyes vs Caen
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday 28th April 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de l’Aube (Troyes).
Troyes in 18th are five points from safety and this game could mean the last chance for the club otherwise by staying in this position they would have to play a play-off with a Ligue 2 side to determine their fate. However Lille could surpass them and relegate them so this match will be like a cup final for them.
The problem is very evident for the home side who have lost 4 games in a row coming into this match. They have conceded 11 goals in those losses and confidence is very low. At home they have 6 wins which is good but recent form is what we need to focus on and the club has lost 3 games in a row.
Caen drew 0-0 in midweek when they played their rescheduled game against Toulouse which was postponed the first time because of bad weather. It was another valid point for the side who now have 37 points and look to be safe. Like Troyes though their recent form is poor with no wins in their last five games and just 2 points gained from those matches.
Away from home Caen has won 5 points from their last 30 and are one of the poorest sides in the league on the road. They have scored just 8 goals all season away from home.
Troyes vs Caen: Head to Head
The last time the teams met here Caen won 3-1
Just looking at their Ligue 1 games of recent times Caen has all 3 wins
Troyes vs Caen: Prediction
Anything of course could happen in this game but if we go for current form for both teams, confidence and the mood of this game everything points to a low scoring game. The game should open up in the second half when legs get tired.
