Troyes vs Chateauroux Prediction
Troyes failed to pick up even a single point for the third clash on the trot after Grenoble managed to edge past them at home, last week, with a 2-1 scorecard. The hosts hardly made an impact in that latter matchup, and disappointingly finished the ninety minutes with just two measly shots on target, only one of which ended up in the back of the net.
Nevertheless, the home team are still dwelling in the top half of the ladder with considerable daylight between them and their counterparts for the week.
On the other hand, Chateauroux are starting to show signs of promise in their respective clashes. The visiting contingent are unbeaten in their past three fixtures, the most recent of which saw them take down AC Ajaccio on the road with a 1-0 scorecard.
Be that as it may, the guests have dropped points in seven of their past twelve outings. To make matters worse, Chateauroux have secured the bragging rights just once in their previous ten visits to this stadium.
Taking into account that the hosts have stumbled just twice in their last six games here, the odds are certainly stacked in the favor of Troyes this week.
However, count on the visiting contingent to not go down without a good fight. The guests have consistently scored a goal or more in each of their previous eight outings in the second division.
Meanwhile, Troyes have conceded twelve goals from their past eight matchups at home, and have kept a clean sheet on just two occasions in the process. As such, count on Chateauroux to bag a consolation goal in this one.
