Lyon at home against Troyes – Wednesday – 9:00pm GMT – The Parc Olympique Lyonnais.

Thirteenth placed Troyes, are away to ninth placed Lyon on Wednesday.

Lyon have so far accrued eight points in this season of the Ligue 1

This match sees Lyon looking for a return to form, following a defeat in their last match against Paris Saint-Germain.

Playing at home, Lyon have won one game and drawn two fixtures.

A win in this fixture would take Lyon’s points to 11 in the League.

Good Attacking Performance

This has been a good season so far for Lyon, in terms of goals scored (9). This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Moussa Dembele (4), Lucas Paqueta (3), and Jason Denayer (1). Lyon have shown a poor defensive performance so far, having conceded 10 goals in their previous matches.

Peter Bosz could be missing up to six of their players through injury or illness for the game on Wednesday.

Troyes go into this meeting with five points secured

With the memory of their last match, doubtless on their minds, a (1-1) draw against Montpellier, Troyes will be keen to improve on that result in this game.

Laurent Batlles knows that a run of three losses in six meetings for his Troyes side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. They currently stand thirteenth in the League, with five points having won one game, drawn two meetings, and lost three fixtures.

Playing away from home, Troyes have won one game, drawn one game, and lost one game.

Troyes will have 8 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Troyes may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
