Troyes vs Saint-Etienne: Preview and Predictions

Troyes vs Saint-Etienne
Ligue 1
Date: 1st October 2017
Kick off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade de l’Aube.

Troyes finally managed to score a goal and grab the second win of the campaign last weekend when they saw off the rock-bottomed Metz side 0-1 on the road.

Jean Louis Garcia’s side will have a very tough task to make it back-to-back wins on Sunday when they host the fourth-placed team of Ligue 1 in the Matchday No 8.

Troyes

The hosts failed to find the back of the net in four consecutive games (if we count the friendly with Paris) before getting the mentioned victory over Metz.

The defensive line has been a much better part of the team since they have only conceded a single goal in last four outings.

Saint-Etienne

Les Verts have much wider range of options in the final third as the attacking line has brought them 14 points in opening seven rounds of the competition.

The team led by the Spanish manager Oscar Garcia suffered only a single defeat since the start of the season (to PSG), but they won’t come into the game in the best of the moods after playing only a 2-2 draw with Rennes last weekend at their Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.

Troyes vs Saint-Etienne: Head to head

Les Verts have entirely dominated this matchup winning 11 and losing only two of their 21 meetings with Troyes.

This includes a run of four wins and draw for Saint-Etienne in their last five matches against Troyes.
