Troyes Preview – Can Troyes push for top two finish?

5th placed Troyes will head into Monday night’s encounter against Auxerre looking to register a third win on the trot in Ligue 2 following recent back-to-back wins against Chateauroux and Caen which has placed the hosts just 4 points behind 2nd placed Ajaccio who occupy the last automatic promotion spot.

Troyes had previously suffered 4 defeats on the trot having lost to Clermont, Le Havre, Grenoble Foot and Lens which had threatened Troyes’s push for at least a play- off spot in the French second tier, but the recent wins will give the hosts a timely boost for the season run-in.

Troyes have won 3 of their last 4 matches at home with victories gained over Rodez, Ajaccio and Chateauroux but their overall home record of 7-0-5 16/15 still looks fairly inconsistent so perhaps the goal markets are the best play here.

Indeed, 8 of Troyes’s 12 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals and this looks to be great value for this encounter.

Our betting suggestion:

Auxerre Preview – Can Auxerre continue run?

Monday night’s visitors, Auxerre, may be sitting in the bottom half of Ligue 2 but they have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 7 matches in the French second tier which was a 1-0 loss away from home at Guingamp, but wins against Le Mans 1-0, Sochaux 2-1 and Ajaccio 3-2 give them a decent chance of getting something out of their trip to Troyes.

However, results away from home have been less convincing as Auxerre have lost 4 of their last 6 matches on their travels, and although they’ve picked up wins at Le Mans and Ajaccio, the defeats have outweighed the recent successes.

Losses at Chateauroux, Paris FC, Lorient and Guingamp have prevented Auxerre from climbing further up the table and their away record of 3-3-6 11/14 hasn’t helped them much either. With just 3 wins from their last 21 matches away from home in Ligue 2, Auxerre look far from a guaranteed three points here.
