Troyes – Angers : Preview & Prediction
Troyes and Angers play at the Stade de l’Aube in a 14-round Ligue 1 match. The history of direct matches at this stadium indicates a balance between these two teams, as there was 1 draw and 1 win for each team in the last 3 matches. However, in the last match at this stage, in a match for Ligue 1 on 02-04-2016, Angers won by (0-1). C. Diers (90 ‘) scored the only goal of the match. The home / away condition deserves special attention, since although this is a match between the 6th and 15th of the overall standings, this is in fact a confrontation between the 16th ranked home games and the 5th as a visitor.
After 4 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses, the home team is in 6th place, having won 18 points. In the last match, they lost with Dijon away by (3-1), after in the previous game to have won at home, in a game against Strasbourg, by (3-0). This is a team little affected by the home factor, that is, it achieves practically the same points at home and away, having won 8 points in its stadium, with 6 goals scored and 9 conceded, against 7 points out, where it scored 7 goals and suffered 9. Troyes won 8 points in 21 chances, after 2 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses in their last 7 games at their home stadium. The team conceded goals to their opponents in 7 of their last 10 games in this competition, so they have not been very strong defensively. In 13 games in the competition, he never managed to turn the scoring in the five games in which he suffered the first goal. There are 1 highlights in the last 9 home games in all competitions: he scored 5 of his 7 goals between the minutes (46’-60 ‘).
Troyes have a chance to clinch their second consecutive win in the French Championship and compensate for the negative results they have accumulated away from home, where they have come from two straight defeats. In the last round, the team did not have a great performance, mainly in defensive terms, allowing three goals to the adversary, suffering thus another setback far from its fans. As was evident in this clash, the team has been characterized by a somewhat flawed offensive system that has failed to swing the opposing network on five occasions and is now among the eight worst in the competition. The club is also the second that finishes less, and maintains that poor performance in possession of the ball and in the exchange of passes. The 4-2-3-1 or 4-1-4-1 should be the tactical setup adopted for that duel by coach Garcia, who is likely to keep Khaoui in the midfield.
After 2 wins, 8 draws and 3 losses, the visiting team is in 15th place, having won 14 points. In the last match, they drew 1-1 with Guingamp, after having lost at home in a game against Paris Saint Germain (0-5). Curiously, this is a team that has achieved better results outside of the home, having won 11 points as a visitor and only 3 in their stadium.
For this competition, do not lose as a visitor makes 7 games. The team has conceded goals in 9 of their last 10 games, so they have not shown great defensive solidity, but their attack has scored regularly, as they managed to achieve in 7 of the last 10 games in this competition. In 13 games in this competition, he suffered the first goal 8 times and never managed to turn the score.
Angers, as well as their opponents, have not been able to make a good campaign so far in the French Championship, since they have only one victory in the last eleven rounds, and now there are four matches without winning, having suffered in that period two defeats, in which he could not get the zero of the score. Despite this, the team has shown a good offensive sector, but leaves much to be desired in the defensive system, which has not conceded in just two games and is now among the six most leaked of the competition. In their last showdown, the team was better but failed to turn good possession into great opportunities, drawing only a draw against Guingamp. As a visitor, the club has been making a good campaign, and in that condition owns the fifth best attack. The 4-1-4-1 has been the most used coaching training, which should keep Andreu, the scorer of the goal in the last round, among the eleven starts.
