Troyes takes on Lorient at the Aube this Friday to conclude their 15th round fixture in the Ligue 2. Lorient occupies the third spot in the league table. They are comfortably enjoying their position at the top of the playoff zone, but will surely target the topper’s place, just three points above them.

Lorient will be disappointed that their stint in the Coupe de France came to an end this soon, and that too by a team that everyone least expected. The match with Saint Malo was supposed to be an easy walk-over for the team from the top tier of French football. But Saint Malo took full advantage of their home status for the match.
The final scoreline read 1-0 in favor of the hosts. Lahaye scored the lone goal, and the winner, of the match in the 9th minute itself. Lorient tried their best for an equalizer but failed to do so.
Troyes comfortably took care of their round of 128 fixture in the French Domestic Cup. The match against Compiegne, in which Troyes was the visiting contingent, ended in a scoreline of 0-2, favoring the guests.
