The spotlight is on Lyon and Troyes, as the pair go looking to boost their confidence. They face each other on Friday at Groupama Stadium in the Ligue 1.Lyon no doubt look forward to their next match, as they ran out 3-1 and 1-0 winners when last playing Troyes.

Lyon put three points on the board from the first two rounds of the Ligue 1 season. With the advantage of playing at Groupama Stadium they will be hopeful of three more points against Troyes.Troyes are still without a single point on the board following the first couple of matches in the Ligue 1. They will be very eager to get off the mark in this round three.

Troyes took a massive beating in their last encounter, and look to make amends on Friday. Lyon should face a seriously motivated home side.

Before their upcoming match in the Ligue 1, Lyon are performing absolutely brilliant, when it comes to goal scoring. In the past ten outings, they performed a formidable average of 2.8 goals per game. An awe-inspiring total of 28 goals. They let 15 goals slip in, which creates an average of 1.5 per game. During this run they fought their way to one clean sheet.

Lyon vs Troyes Prediction

Lyon are enjoying their football currently with three wins on the bounce, and it began with a 3-2 win against Nantes. They went on to beat Clermont Foot by 1-2, before also getting the better of AC Ajaccio in a 2-1 victory.In their last six Ligue 1 home matches, Lyon racked up five strong wins, but no draws as they lost once. They scored 21 and conceded 12 goals.

While a title challenge may be a bit of a stretch, Lyon look a solid bet for a top three finish at the end of the season.

A draw is all that prevents Troyes from having nothing to show for their previous three games. They claimed a point in a 1-1 draw against Lorient before getting trounced against Montpellier by a 3-2 score. Last time out, more disappointment followed as Toulouse ran out 0-3 winners.Troyes came through their last six away games in the Ligue 1 without a single win. Of those six matches, they drew three and lost three in which, they were outscored by ten goals to seven.

A struggle seems inevitable at this stage for Troyes, as the home side look to beat the drop zone and keep their Ligue 1 status.

We'd be flabbergasted to see Lyon waste away a win against Troyes, who could be in for a battering, the way goals have been flowing lately.
