Brest & Troyes meet on Match-day 15
With a League position of thirteenth, Troyes will be six places higher than struggling Brest, when they visit the Stade Francis-Le Blé.
Home Fans Nervous About Relegation, as Brest Host Troyes on Sunday
Brest come to this match on the back of a 1-0 away win against Nice at Allianz Rivera.
Also, when you suffer seven defeats in the last 11 matches, it should come as no surprise that your team is very much struggling at the bottom of the League. But that is the situation that Brest find themselves in. With 10 points (2W, 8L and 4D), they are established in nineteenth position in the League having won two matches, drawn four fixtures, and lost eight meetings.
When Brest host Troyes, they will do so on the back of three draws and three defeats on their own ground.
A win in this fixture, would take Brest’s points from 10 to 13, so far this season.
Brest may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
Troyes have 14 points to their name, going into this tie
Troyes will be hoping for a win, following a disappointing 1-1 home draw against Auxerre in their last game.
Also, with four draws in six meetings, Troyes need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. Now they have 3 matches won, 6 games lost and 5 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in thirteenth place, with a total of 14 points having won three fixtures, drawn five meetings, and lost six matches.
It must be a worrying prospect for Troyes to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured two victories and five losses to the home team.
Winning this fixture will see Troyes on 17 points.
Good Attacking Performance
Troyes have a good scoring record this season, with 25 netted so far (22 from open play and three penalties). This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Mama Balde (7), Florian Tardieu (3), and Wilson Odobert (3). Troyes have a very poor defensive record, having conceded 29 goals in their previous matches.
Troyes are likely to be missing four of their key players when they start Sunday’s game, due to injury and illness.
