Team News, Preview, and Troyes vs Montpellier Lineups

Troyes

Defending has been by far the weakest point of Troyes' season. Allowing 52 goals is a failure of the whole back line, and going forward, if the team wants to remain in Ligue 1, these problems will need to be fixed promptly. Troyes is only two points away from the relegation zone and with three losses in a row, things are not looking good for the club. It is strange to see, but Troyes has been failing at home. They have only one win while playing in front of their fans. Florian Tardieu and Karim Azamoum are injured for the match this weekend.

Predicted lineup: Gallon, Porozo, Palmer-Brown, Salmier, T. Balde, Reine-Adelaide, Agoume, Chavalerin, Larouci, Rony Lopes, Mama Balde.

Montpellier

It seems that Montpellier fixed their goalscoring issues, now the only thing that remains is to do the same thing with the defensive ones. Montpellier allows goals almost every match and that fact has been especially evident in away matches where they allowed 24 goals in eleven games. They did make up the difference a little bit. By winning in two out of their last four away matches, they scored four goals which is an improvement from the first part of the season. Stephy Mavididi and Pedro Mendes are struggling with health issues.

Predicted lineup: Lecomte, Sylla, Kouyate, Jullien, Sacko, Leroy, Ferri, Maouassa, Savanier, Nordin, Wahi.

Player to Watch: Mama Balde

Even though Troyes is struggling with form, that is not a concern for Mama Balde. The striker from Guinea-Bissau has been the team's best player this season scoring nine goals and assisting on four occasions.
