The home team has started the competition surprisingly well this season. After 6 games played, they have 14 points and occupy a high third place in the table.

In the previous part of the championship, they registered four wins and two draws, with a great goal difference of 15 goals scored and only 7 goals conceded. They ended their streak of three consecutive victories in the last round when they played only 1:1 against weak Reims, so it is to be expected that we will see the reaction of the Lens footballers this time.

This season, they are at their maximum performance at home (3 wins and a goal difference of 10:5), so it is clear that their home field is a really big advantage. It is to be expected that the Lens team will continue to play at a very fast pace as before, and if they succeed in that, we do not see how the guests could threaten them.


After a really weak start, the Troyes team managed to overcome the crisis. After 3 defeats, two victories followed, and in the last round, they played 1:1 against favored Rennes.

However, not everything is so great for the visiting team. In 6 games played, they conceded as many as 14 goals, and they currently have one of the weakest defensive performances in the league. The 11 goals scored are not enough to compensate for the defensive mistakes, so they will definitely have to reduce the number of defensive mistakes for the rest of the season.

As many as 16 goals were scored in 3 away games, which speaks volumes for Troyes’ style of play. Bearing in mind that they are big underdogs in this game, we think they will still play bravely because they don’t have much to lose.


The last two meetings between these teams ended with 4 goals each.

Injuries and suspensions

Lens: Buksa, Farinez, Machado, Said and Fofana.

Troyes: Azamoum, Bruus, Salmier and Conte.

Lens vs. Troyes Prediction

Without thinking too much, goals are our first choice here. Lens scored 10 goals in 3 games at home, while the guests scored 7 and conceded 9 goals in 3 away games. Accordingly, it is quite realistic to expect that we could see at least 3 goals here.

Our forecast: 3-1.
