Troyes v Bordeaux Match Preview
Troyes head into this encounter in massively poor form. ESTAC lost their previous league encounter to Lille 2-1 and have won just once in their last six games. They have defended poorly as well, conceding 10 goals and scoring just five.
Laurent Batlles’ men have a mountain to climb as they look to avoid relegation and will be hoping for a better showing against Bordeaux who have problems of their own.
The arrival of veteran tactician Vladimir Petkovic has done little to change the club’s fortunes. Les Girondins managed to hold Lyon to a 2-2 draw last time out but they have won only once in their last six league outings.
They’ve conceded 17 goals in the last six matches which does not make for a good reading for a side that has the ability to score goals but is mostly undone by a very porous backline.
Troyes v Bordeaux Team News
ESTAC are already without experienced midfielder Karim Azamoum who is expected to return late March next year. Youngster Metinho is also out for the entire season.
The absence of Paul Baysse through a cruciate ligament injury has impacted the club severely and the 33-year-old is still out for the time being. The visitors are also without star forward Josh Maja and Hu-jo Hwang who have missed 17 and 11 games respectively.
