Lens vs Troyes Tips and Prediction
Indeed, Lens’ head coach Franck Haise has led the team to two consecutive seventh-place finishes since they were promoted from Ligue 2.
Les Sang et Or have moved into the top four of Ligue 1 after six games thanks to four victories, two draws, and a stunning victory against Reims last time out.
Most teams would have lost after Deiver Machado’s 66th-minute dismissal was made worse by the hosts’ Folarin Balogun breaking the score five minutes later. In the 82nd minute, Lois Openda saved a point for Lens, proving that they are tougher than that these days.
Haise and his team are confident that they can continue their winning streak against Troyes on Friday, which would put them atop Ligue 1 overnight before their competitors have the chance to pass them again on Saturday. This season, they have won each of their three home games.
But Troyes shouldn’t be taken lightly, especially since they managed to get a point in their previous game despite playing with just ten men.
Ike Ugbo had given Bruno Irles’s squad a lead in the 14th minute, but Yoann Salmier’s studs-up tackle led to his dismissal 13 minutes later, making it difficult for his colleagues to win the game the rest of the way.
After Baptiste Santamaria’s equalizer three minutes after halftime, Rennes appeared to be headed for an away victory.
However, ESTAC was awarded a potentially significant point thanks to some heroic goalkeeping by Gauthier Gallon, who also received a booking for time-wasting as part of his performance.
The draw extended Troyes’ unbeaten streak to three games after they started the season in poor form with three straight losses. This is no small accomplishment for a team that only narrowly avoided relegation when they returned to Ligue 1 the previous season by six points.
Irles hopes to get further away from the extended drop zone this season, so avoiding defeat once more at Lens on Friday night is almost probably important.
Troyes will want to win Lens, who might need to be patient in order to secure a slim victory.More teams will likely defend deeper against Lens as they continue to improve under Haise, which is a challenge they must learn to overcome if they want to stay at the top of the table.
