Lyon vs Troyes Prediction & Betting tips
The third stage of Ligue 1 starts on Friday evening with the match between Lyon and Troyes, the game which is scheduled to start at 20:00. The two teams also met last season in the championship, Lyon managing to win both matches, 3-1 at home in the first leg and 1-0 away in the second leg. A detail related to the statistics is the fact that Troyes last won against Lyon in 2007, and since then nine matches have been played between the two teams and all of them ended with the victory of Lyon. The last draw was a 0-0 at home in Lyon in 2003 in a championship match.
Lyon started the new season with a victory against newly promoted AC Ajaccio, score 2-1 at home. The match was not an easy one at all, because from the 27th minute until the end of the first half, Lyon played with a man down after the elimination of the goalkeeper Antonio Lopes. In the second round, Lyon should have played away on Lorient’s field, but the hosts’ stadium hosted a festival a few days before the match and the state of the turf deteriorated and for this reason, the match was postponed, and was to be played at a later date.
On the other hand, Troyes started the season very poorly, conceding three goals each from Montpellier and Toulouse in the first two rounds. In the first leg, Troyes played a good away match at Montpellier, managing to draw 1-0 and 2-1, but conceded the 3-2 goal in the 81st minute and had to admit defeat. In the second round, Troyes played at home against Toulouse, but disappointed its fans, being defeated 3-0, after a weak match. After two stages, Troyes occupies the penultimate place in the standings, the last position being occupied by Reims who scored eight goals.
