France Ligue 2 – Troyes v Orleans Preview (4/12/18)

Match Preview

Troyes have won 7 of their last 10 games and you can’t really knock their recent results. Performances have been good and they must surely fancy their chances against an Orleans side who have gone downhill lately. I always suspected that their surprising 6 match winning streak in Sept/Oct was a bit of a freak and they've since followed it up with some very poor results. The latest of those was losing 1-2 at home to Nancy and the sort of performance they had in that game was pretty appalling really. Troyes should have enough here and they are backable around the 1.90 mark, which is nothing brilliant but offers sufficient value to warrant a bet on them. Aside from winning at Red Star and GFCA, this Orleans team hasn’t impressed much away from home and quite frankly Troyes are a much better team. Orleans still miss key man at the back Adrien Mondray and the difference when he is and isn’t in the side is like night and day. Home win for me here.

Prediction: 2-0

Recommended bet: Troyes -0.5 @1.90
