Troyes vs Lens – Prediction, and Match Preview

Troyes vs Lens – After a 5-1 Ligue 1 defeat to Lille in their previous game, ESTAC won’t want a recurrence of that performance tonight.

In that game, ESTAC had 33% of the possession, and 2 of their 10 shots on goal were successful. Mama Baldé scored for ESTAC in the 65th second.

At the other end, Lille had 23 shots on goal, with 13 of them finding the back of the net. Alan Virginius (75′), Jonathan David (45′), and Mohamed Bayo (16′, 47′) all scored goals for Lille.

In recent years, ESTAC hasn’t kept a clean sheet very frequently. In reality, ESTAC’s defense has been breached in five of their last six games, allowing 13 goals in the process.

Leaving that aside, we’ll just have to wait and see if a similar pattern will repeat itself in this upcoming game.

Prior to this clash, ESTAC had lost their last four league games against RC Lens and had gone 7 games without a home victory in the league. It makes sense that their fans are dissatisfied.

RC Lens will enter the encounter having defeated Brest in their last game to win the Cup of France by a score of 1-3. In that contest, RC Lens had a 53% possession advantage and 12 shots on goal, 5 of which were successful.

Wesley Sad (5′), Facundo Medina (30′), and Adrien Thomasson (37′) scored the goals for RC Lens. Brest, on the other hand, made 16 attempts at goal, with 4 of them succeeding.

Brest scored with nineteen seconds remaining thanks to Islam Slimani.

The RC Lens defense has put in a string of strong performances, and as a result, they have only allowed four goals in their last six games combined.

Their own forwards have managed to score 11 goals throughout the same time frame. Their prior outcomes demonstrate that the RC Lens are unbeaten in their last four league road games and have lost both of their last two league games on the road.

At that point, RC Lens had 63% of the possession, and 3 of their 12 shots on goal were successful. Kevin Danso scored the goal (at 39′).

Two of ESTAC’s seven goal attempts were successful. Hakim Ben El Hadj served as the referee for the game.

ESTAC boss Patrick Kisnorbo just one fitness concern out of a nearly fully healthy group of players, so there aren’t many personnel concerns.

Due to Achilles tendon issues, Florian Tardieu is out. Due to his suspension, Renaud Ripart is ineligible to play in this game.

Franck Haise, the manager of RC Lens, must select a team from a limited pool of candidates. Wuilker Fariez (torn cruciate ligament), Adam Buksa (sprained ankle), and Jimmy Cabot (torn cruciate ligament) will not be playing.

Although one goal definitely won’t be enough to prevent a loss, we have a sense that ESTAC will be able to get past this RC Lens team’s defense.
