Troyes vs Sochaux Prediction and Match Preview

Troyes vs Sochaux
France Ligue 2
Date: Friday, 19th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade de l’Aube (Troyes).

Troyes are in 11th place and after a slow start to the season the club have really found their form, the question is did the recent international break harm them as they have been on such a fine run.

The home side come into this game having remained undefeated in their last 4 games and that goes back to the middle of September. At home they started the season by losing their first 3 games which was a disaster for them but they have bounced back recently by winning their last 2 games here against Niort and Auxerre respectively.

Sochaux are in 15th place and they could in theory go in front of Troyes with a few goals and a win. But recent form does not suggest that as they come into this match having not won a game in their last 4 attempts. They have lost 3 of their last 4 games and the only encouraging sign is that they are not losing by big scores. From 5 games on the road Sochaux have won just one.

Troyes vs Sochaux: Prediction

The form side are clearly Troyes and we think they can get something from his game, but we fancy them to start the game in a quick fashion. This is why our main bet for this match will be to see the home side leading at half time.

Sochaux will be the outsiders by they have rarely lost by a big score and this could be quite a narrow result for the home side and we will also back the correct score for smaller stakes.
