Today's Predictions for Reims vs Troyes

Troyes have lost four of their last five games in Ligue 1 ahead of another tough test against an improving Reims outfit on Sunday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Reims to Win

Reims’s incredible improvement under coach Will Still has been making headlines this season and the club’s defeat at Toulouse in the cup in midweek was their first setback in 15 fixtures in all competitions. Reims should have enough class to bounce straight back on Sunday when they host a Troyes side that has lost four of their last five league fixtures however. The visitors shipped a huge 12 goals in their last three losses and they should struggle to contain Reims’s firepower in this one.

Folarin Balogun to Score Anytime

Our second prediction tips into the anytime goalscorer market, where Arsenal-loanee Folarin Balogun jumps off the page as an option worth backing. The lethal finisher has scored five times in Reims’s last three home games and the American attacker is enjoying a breakout campaign in 2022/23. Balogun has scored 14 times in Ligue 1 overall and he can add to his tally with another strike on Sunday against Troyes.

Let's take a closer look at the latest markets, odds and probability figures ahead of Sunday’s tussle between Reims and Troyes below.

Reims odds: 14/25 (1.56) – 64.1%

Reims vs Troyes Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Sunday’s Ligue 1 skirmish between Reims and Troyes below.

Reims

Reims will be without the services of attacking duo Mitchell Van Bergen and Noah Jean Holm this weekend. Reims were knocked out of the cup by Toulouse in midweek, though they did rest a handful of players in that contest. Expect a full-strength team for Sunday's game, however.

Predicted Lineup for Reims: Diouf – Foket, Abgadou, Abdelhamid, De Smet – Munetsi, Cajuste, Ito, Doumbia, Flips – Balogun

Troyes

Midfielder Florian Tardieu won't play again this season for Troyes, though Karim Azamoum is closing in on a return and could be available before the end of the month. Troyes had their wings clipped by Lyon in a 3-1 loss at home last time out and they have drifted dangerously close to the drop zone following a poor run.

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

Player to Watch – Alexis Flips

Alexis Flips has been Reims’s Jack of all trades this season and the versatile performer has played in a range of different positions for his club this term, including right back all the way out to left wing. The 23-year-old rarely lets his team down, no matter where he is deployed and Flips could be a key player again on Sunday.
