Troyes – Marseille Preview

  • Goal difference is the only thing that separates Troyes from the foot of the Ligue 1 table ahead of this round with manager Bruno Irlès already under pressure after only six games in charge of ‘ESTAC’ (W1, D1, L4). He’s seen his side concede nine goals across their previous two league outings, that’s more than they conceded in the seven games prior (eight)!
  • Given that each of Troyes’ last eight top-flight home results have differed from the one that came before (W2, D3, L3), more consistency at Stade de l’Aube is needed if they’re to avoid a fourth straight Ligue 1 relegation straight after a promotion. The second half is where they need to improve most, as Troyes have scored a league-low 18% of their Ligue 1 home goals after the break!
  • Despite a 2-0 home loss against struggling Clermont last weekend, Marseille reacted well by sealing qualification for the UEFA Europa Conference League round of 16 with a 3-0 win at Qarabağ in midweek. Here, they face another newly-promoted side hoping to improve their lowly 46% win rate across their previous 13 Ligue 1 matches against such teams (W6, D3, L4).
  • But after winning their last three Ligue 1 meetings against Troyes, Marseille could make a bit of history by winning a fourth straight H2H clash for the very first time. The visitors’ impressive away league form could be key to achieving that feat, as they’ve won six of their last seven Ligue 1 road trips (L1), while scoring first on each occasion – six times before half-time.
  • Players to watch: The pressure is on Troyes’ Mama Baldé, if doesn’t find the net in this game, he will go 12 Ligue 1 games without a goal for the first time in his career. Marseille’s potential hero could be Dimitri Payet, as he has been directly involved in four goals across the last three H2Hs (G1, A3).
  • Hot stat: Home teams have won only 15% of the 2021/22 Ligue 1 matches officiated by François Letexier – a league-low among referees with 10+ games.
