Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in five of Troyes’ seven Ligue 1 home matches against clubs in the current top eight.
  • Both teams have scored in seven of the last 11 Lille away league games.
  • Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings between the clubs in all competitions.

Lille look like being Troyes’ top target for three vital points 

Quite an even contest could be on the cards when relegation-threatened Troyes host mid-table Lille in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

The hosts are desperate to pull away from the clubs in the bottom three and will see this home game as perhaps their greatest opportunity to pick up a win from the four fixtures remaining. Lille arrive on the back of a 1-0 home victory over sixth-placed Strasbourg, but had been winless in four prior to that.

It’s fair to say things have turned a bit toxic for them less than a year after their glorious title victory with things getting a bit out of hand last weekend. Striker Jonathan David, who has scored one goal in 14 league games this year, was whistled while fans sang for coach Jocelyn Gourvennec to resign and some crude banners were on display as the ultras made their feelings to the players known.

Both teams can score if Troyes raise their game again

They might be glad to be on the road again this week – where results since Christmas have been marginally better. Les Dogues still draw too many games that they should win and look disinterested in some that they lose.

Trusting LOSC to win at Stade de l’Aube at only just better than even money is a risky play given they couldn’t beat Metz, Saint-Etienne or Clermont – three of the current bottom four – away from home earlier this season. Both teams to score could have a good chance here given Gourvennec’s side have scored and conceded in seven of their last 11 road trips.

It offers value at a shade of odds-on as we note that both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings between the clubs in all competitions while Troyes, who seem to raise their game against top-half clubs, have scored and conceded against five of the current top eight. A 1-1 result is the preferred play in correct score betting as Lille have not scored more than once in their last seven away league trips.
