Lens vs Troyes Prediction 3 February 2017

Tournament: French Ligue 2
Location: Bollaert-Delelis Stadium
Match date: 03.02.2017 at 19:00

On Friday February 3 2017 at 19:00 in the regular game of the 23rd matchday of the French Ligue 2 at the Bollaert-Delelis Stadium the local Lens play against Troyes.

Lens are known to be strong middle-peasants of the Ligue 2. After 2/3rd of the season they are on the 4th position in the standings with 30:25 goal difference and 35 points gained in their 22 games played. Moreover, not all of the home games were successful for Lens. In the latest matches they drew Reims 1:1 and Ajaccio 1:1, outplayed Le Havre 1:0 and Gazelec Ajaccio 2:1 and lost to Nimes 1:3.

As for Troyes, their performance in the home matches is strong, yet they show really poor results in the away ones. Even though Troyes are just one step from the promotion zone, they still have nothing to do in the elite division with the performance they show in the current championship. The victory against Le Havre 2:1 in the latest game broke their 4 games long winless series. In those matches Troyes lost to Auxerre 1:1, lost to Reims 2:0, Ajaccio 1:2 and Laval 1:0.

In fact, both of the teams are of the same level; they are both competing for making it to the promotion zone in the current season. We must also remind you that in the first round game of the current championship the teams drew 1:1. Anyway, Lens haven’t lost to Troyes at home since 2001 for the 8 last games. We doubt that Troyes will manage to change it in the upcoming match.
