Troyes enjoy home advantage, when visitors Lille swing by on Saturday for a Ligue 1 clash.

The mood at Troyes is probably far from ideal, following 4 defeats from their last 6 games across all tournaments recently. The home side needs to improve performances against Lille to turn the situation around.

Troyes scored eight goals, conceded 21 and fought their way to zero clean sheets in their previous ten matches.

Lille scored 15 goals, conceded seven and managed three clean sheets in their previous ten matches.

Troyes took a hit when Lille handed them a 5-1 defeat in their latest encounter. The former did win the reverse match though, as they secured three points to their name by claiming a 3-0 win.

Troyes vs Lille Prediction

Troyes Form

In their last three matches, Troyes lost 4-0 against Rennes, drew 1-1 with Strasbourg, before losing to Angers by 2-1. Troyes are without a win in their last six Ligue 1 matches on home soil, which produced a record of three draws and three defeats, in which they conceded 11 and scored six goals.

They went into the season as candidates for the drop, and unfortunately for Troyes, they have lived up to expectations. As the season draws to a close, they are still in with a chance of escaping relegation, though.

Lille Form

Lille went unbeaten through their last three matches, which began with a 0-0 draw against Monaco. A 2-1 win against Marseille followed, before they beat Nantes by 2-1. Lille managed to win just once in their past six away games in the Ligue 1. On top of winning once they also drew three as well as losing two, while scoring four time and letting in four.

Both Troyes and visitors Lille seem to struggle just a wee bit much right now, with keeping a clean sheet. We go out on a limb here and suggest that, both teams will find the back of the net.

Lille won eight of their previous 11 outings against teams from the bottom six and claimed 26 points. They scored 25 and conceded seven goals. Troyes have a record of four wins, 11 draws and 22 defeats in the Ligue 1 this season. Lille show off 19 wins, nine draws and nine defeats in the Ligue 1.
