Lille v Troyes Match Preview
Les Dogues registered another win on Wednesday to extend an unbeaten run of six games in all competitions. Troyes on the other hand, defeated Lorient 2-0 which put an end to a four-game run where they did not win a single game.
Lille were initially on a six game winless run but have restored some of their pride in recent weeks. The latest win came against Stade Rennes. Les Dogues normally make bright starts to games but their inability to close the door completely on their opponents is the reason why they’re not battling for a top three spot.
Jocelyn Gourvennec’s men are also very close to qualifying for the next round of the Champions League at the expense of Barcelona so the game against Troyes could be a great start to the week for them.
However, Troyes are not going to be an easy side to tame. ESTAC defeated Lorient in their most recent Ligue 1 encounter. Moreover, they have done very well against the top sides in Ligue 1. Picking up regular wins is the reason why they might fight off relegation.
