The Ligue 1 clash at Stade de l'Aube on Sunday sees Troyes hosting opponents Brest.
Troyes as well as Brest suffered disappointing defeats in their most previous match. This could lead to a cautious encounter as neither side naturally fancies losing once again already.
Brest average one goals a game in their last ten outing, scoring a total of ten goals. They conceded an average of 1.1 per game, for a total of 11 goals, whilst keeping their opponents from scoring four times.
Winning 2-1 and 5-1 in the last two most matches against Troyes, will have Brest looking forward to their upcoming away trip.
Troyes vs Brest Prediction
A solitary draw point prevents Troyes from having nothing to show for their previous three games. They came up short in a 2-1 defeat against AC Ajaccio, before drawing 2-2 with Monaco. They came up empty-handed once again when Lorient ran out as 2-0 winners. Troyes didn't manage a single win in any of their previous six Ligue 1 games at the Stade de l'Aube. They have a record of three draws and three defeats, in which they conceded nine and scored four goals.
In their previous three outings, Brest lost 2-1 against Lille, beat Strasbourg 0-1 and lost 1-2 against PSG. Brest managed to win just once in their past six away games in the Ligue 1. On top of winning once they also drew two as well as losing three, while scoring seven time and letting in three.
Going forward, Troyes and Brest are both in decent form, while at the same time being generous in defence. We are confident, both teams will find the back of the net this coming Sunday.
