Troyes and Dijon are both not safe from relegation from Ligue 1 going into Tuesday night’s crunch clash. The hosts will be buoyed following a huge 1-0 win over basement club Metz on Saturday, a result which lifted them away from the bottom three and into 15th. However, they are just one point above the drop zone with 13 games left to play this campaign and will surely be part of a run-in full of twists and turns.
The weekend’s win saw the end of a run of three straight defeats for Troyes in league and cup. Considering they face Rennes, PSG and Nantes in their next three matches after Tuesday’s game, a win is an absolute must. If they fail to get three points it would be no surprise to see them firmly in the bottom three in a couple of weeks’ time. For a newly promoted side they have fared quite well, winning eight of their 25 games, but goals have been a huge problem with only 25 scored. Mali striker Adama Niane has bagged six, but that is nowhere enough to fire his team to safety.
Dijon have not fared much better to date and they sit in 13th on 31 points. After a terrible start to the season, they had a fantastic middle period of the campaign in which they got into the top half. A five-point cushion from the relegation zone at this stage is not too bad at all, but they have won only two of their past eight outings which suggests they may end up in further danger unless they can manage a couple of wins in their next few games.
We see the home side winning this one and reducing the gap on their opponents to one point. Our advice is to back Troyes to win on the Full Time Result market while for our correct score prediction, we think they will win the match 2-1.
