Troyes vs PSG
France – Ligue 1
Date: Saturday, 3rd March 2018
Kick off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Stade de l’Aube (Troyes).
Troyes will face a massive game as the 18th club side welcome the mighty PSG to their ground on Saturday for this early evening kick off. The club will be the huge outsiders to get anything from this game and the set up will be one of defence and playing very deep, a draw would be considered a victory for a side who has won just 8 matches all season.
Troyes have been strong at home in recent weeks having lost just 1 game in their past 6. However they have had some easier fixtures during that time. They have scored just 12 goals at home this season and only Nantes with 11, have a worse record.
PSG will be the huge favourites to win but backing them to win would make no sense. The club had to play less than 48 hours before when they beat Marseille 3-0 in the Coupe de France. This is an away game, although not too far to travel. But manager Unai Emery played a very strong side against Marseille, most of these players will play against Troyes. Finally they have their must win Champions League 2nd leg match v Real Madrid on Tuesday. So there are many things to think about in the PSG camp.
Troyes vs PSG: Head to Head

Troyes vs PSG: Prediction
Nobody is saying PSG will not win this game but they have a lot on their minds. They will be a little tired, Neymar is injured and they have Real Madrid to play. We expect this game to start off slow and see more goals in the second half. Maximum stakes on this bet.
