Under 2.5 Total Goals

Although Troyes averaged 3.68 goals per game in Ligue 1 this season, we don't see this being a high-scoring affair. After all, Lens averaged 2.37 goals per game so far in the league, which is one of the lowest averages.

On top of that, four of the last five head-to-head meetings between Troyes and Lens have gone under 2.5 total goals, so we can see that being the case on Saturday as well.

Troyes vs Lens Preview: Recent Form, Team News, and Possible Lineups

We can see this being a very interesting game, so let's take a better look at both teams before they meet on Saturday:

Troyes

In the last six games in the league, Troyes have two draws, three losses, and just one win. So, it's safe to say that the team wasn't in great form recently, which is why they are now sitting in the 14th spot in the standings. More importantly, Troyes is now just three points ahead of the first team in the relegation zone, so they will want to find their form sooner rather than later.

When it comes to team news, Renaud Ripart is suspended right now, Lucien Agoume is out due to unknown reasons, while Florian Tardieu and Karim Azamoum are on the team's injury list.

Troyes Predicted Lineup:

Lis – Conte, Porozo, Palmer-Brown, Salmier, T. Balde – Chavalerin, Tardieu, Lopes – Ugbo, M. Balde

Lens

Lens impressed last season in Ligue 1 but they've already done so much better this season. In fact, Lens is currently just three points behind the might PSG in the race for the title and they've been undefeated in the league since October, for nine games in a row. Not only that, but seven of those nine games have been wins, including a win over PSG, who was unbeaten before their duel with Lens.

Meanwhile, Adam Buksa, Jimmy Cabot, and Wuilker Farinez are currently on the sidelines with injuries.

Lens Predicted Lineup:

Samba – Gradit, Danso, Medina – Frankowski, Abdul Samed, Fofana, Haidara – Costa, Sotoca, Openda

Ligue 1 Standings

Player to Watch: Florian Sotoca

While the key player this season for Lens has been Lois Openda, their top goalscorer, Florian Sotoca has been right behind him in terms of goals, but he also is the main creative force behind Lens' offense.

In fact, the experienced winger has contributed to twelve goals for his team this season – he scored six goals and added six assists. With that in mind, he is our choice as the player to watch against Troyes.
