Troyes vs Nantes
2017/18 French Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 19th August 2017
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de L’aube.
After an unexpected win, Troyes is hosting Nantes at Stade de L’aube for the 3rd round of the Ligue 1.
Hardly anyone expected to see the newly welcomed Troyes defeating Nice. The underdogs, the visiting team, practically nothing in their favour – and still they managed to return home with 3 points. The final score was 1 – 2. With 4 points, they are currently sitting at the 8th place in the league table. According to the draw and a win so far in the Ligue 1, it seems that they took it pretty seriously.
Nantes is in the worse position than their hosts for the upcoming round. With two losses, they are at the bottom of the league table. Last week they hosted the first ranked Olympique Marseille and lost 0 – 1. They still haven’t scored a goal so far.
Troyes vs Nantes: Head to head
Nantes was the winner of 10 out of total 17 head to head encounters. Their last duel was in January 2016, and Nantes won 0 – 1. On average, they scored less than 2 goals per head to head match.
Troyes vs Nantes: Prediction
It is rather difficult to determine the favourite in this match. But taking into account Troyes shape and high spirit at the moment, as well as the home terrain, they might have an advantage. Should Troyes take the lead, they would be more than happy to put eleven men behind the ball. In that case, less than three goals are to be expected.
