Troyes vs Lyon
Sunday 16 January, 16:05
Troyes take on Lyon at the Stade de I’Aube in a Ligue 1 showdown on Sunday.
Troyes have been struggling recently and sit in 16th place on the Ligue 1 table, while Lyon are currently in a disappointing 11th place.
After seeing last weekend’s game against Montpellier chalked off due to the COVID-19 problems in their squad, this match will mark Troyes’ first of 2022.
They ended 2021 in pretty bad form, winning just one of their last eight matches – a 2-0 win over fellow strugglers Lorient. The victory was just Troyes’ fourth of the current campaign.
Struggling first division side Troyes appointed Bruno Irles, former Quevilly-Rouen coach, as its new coach after Laurent Batlles was fired during the midseason break.
Scoring goals has been the biggest issue for Troyes, as they have only managed 18 thus far, the third-lowest total of any side in Ligue 1 right now.
Peter Bosz’s side have won just one of their last seven matches, a 0-1 victory over Montpellier that came way back on November 28th.
Since then, they’ve lost to Reims and have drawn their last four matches, although their first league game of 2022 – a 1-1 draw with league leaders Paris St. Germain – should give them some hope.
They have managed just two wins across their 9 away games so far this season (2-3-4), but are unbeaten in their last 3 away matches (1-2-0).
