Troyes vs Lille
French Ligue 1
Date: 1 May 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Stade de l’Aube.
Stade de l’Aube will play host to the 35th round of Ligue 1 clash between Troyes and Lille as the two outfits take on each other exactly at noon on Sunday.
Both teams need points to try and fulfill their respective goals. Troyes are only two points above the danger zone with just four matches to spare.
Lille, on the other side, rejoined the battle for European positions after a 1-0 victory over Strasbourg last weekend.
Troyes took only one point in the previous four Ligue 1 affairs. They have failed to score a single goal in the last two defeats to Clermont and Nice.
Nevertheless, Bruno Irles’ men did show signs of defensive improvements in the recent fixtures since they shipped only one goal in each of the last three league outings despite facing the likes of Strasbourg, and Nice along the way.
Moving forward, it is worth mentioning that Troyes shipped the only goal of the game against Nice in the third minute of added time seven days ago at Allianz Riviera.
Troyes could easily play another low-scoring match here against Lille who have also been favoring defensive-minded style in the last several weeks.
Only three of the last eleven matches Lille played in the league saw three or more goals scored. It is worth noting that the team led by Jocelyn Gourvennec saw off UEFA Champions League hopefuls Strasbourg 1-0 last Sunday at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Troyes vs Lille Head-to-head
- The outfits have 9 wins each in the previous 25 head to head encounters.
- Both teams were on target in five of the last six H2H games.
- Lille have won only two of the last eleven clashes with Troyes at Stade de l’Aube.
Troyes vs Lille Prediction
Both teams have been pretty tough to break down lately and the Under 2.5 goals FT pick stands out as the best betting option here at the 1.66 odds.
As for the outcome, we are tempted to take the 3.25 odds offered for the stalemate knowing that Lille (the bookies’ favorites here) left Stade de l’Aube victories only twice in the previous eleven visits.
