Today's Predictions for Troyes vs Lyon

Can Lyon complete the league double over Troyes when the teams collide in Ligue 1 on Saturday afternoon? Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Lyon to Win

Troyes have collected just one point from the last 12 on offer in Ligue 1 and their dip in form comes at an opportune time for a visiting Lyon team on Saturday. Les Gones were held at home by Brest in midweek, though they enjoyed back-to-back wins on the road before that in league and cup, and a third-straight away triumph could be in the works here. Lyon thumped Troyes 4-1 earlier in the campaign and our prediction tips them to complete the double over ESTAC this weekend.

Over 1.5 Lyon Goals

Lyon managed to rattle the net five times in their last two away fixtures and the Les Gones frontline could enjoy another productive outing against an out-of-sorts Troyes side on Saturday. Troyes have conceded a whopping ten times in their last three Ligue 1 fixtures and their brittle backline could struggle to contain a dangerous Lyon attack this weekend. With that in mind, a stake on the visitors in the over 1.5 team goals market could be worth considering.

Troyes vs Lyon Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Saturday’s Ligue 1 clash between Troyes and Lyon below.

Troyes

Midfielder Karim Azamoum is closing in on a return from a long-term injury, though Florian Tardieu, who plays in the same area, won't play again this season. Troyes are down in 16th spot in Ligue 1 following their 4-1 reverse at Toulouse in midweek. There is now just one point between Troyes and the drop zone.

Predicted Lineup for Troyes: Gallon – Porozo, Salmier, Palmer-Brown – Balde, Kouame, Agoume, Chavalerin, Larouci – Lopes, Balde

Lyon

Lyon have a clean bill of health at present, though a full complement of players didn't help their cause on Wednesday evening when they were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Brest. Les Gones are down in a hugely-disappointing 10th place in Ligue 1, though they still have time to spark a turnaround between now and May.

Predicted Lineup for Lyon: Lopes – Gusto, Diomande, Lovren, Tagliafico – Lepenant, Tolisso, Caqueret – Cherki, Lacazette, Barcola

Player to Watch – Rayan Cherki

19-year-old Rayan Cherki is the jewel in Lyon’s crown at present and the technically gifted midfielder is the team’s chief playmaker. Cherki played an incredible ten key passes in midweek against Brest, though his teammates failed to make the most of his chance-creating power. The teenager should be central to Lyon’s attacking blueprint again on Saturday.
