Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
As expected, Troyes suffered a 3-2 loss to Monaco at Stade Louis II, but their performance in the game against the title holders was anything but poor. Jean Louis Garcia’s men dropped a two-goal advantage in the defeat to les Rouges et Blancs, but seeing that they faced a tough fixture list, we predict that they are going to grab something from Saturday’s football match against Amiens. The newcomers head into the match following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Rennes and Lyon and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the Stade de l’Aube clash. The two teams seem to be evenly matched ahead of Matchday 18 and there is every chance they will share the spoils in what should be considered the relegation six-pointer. You should bear in mind that two sides meet for the first time ever in the French elite division.
Highlighted Player (Jeremy Cordoval):
Jeremy Cordoval began his senior career at Troyes and he made nine appearances in the league for the club from 2008 to 2010. Cordoval then joined Beauvais and after playing 37 games for the Stade Pierre Brisson outfit, he moved to Cannes at the end of the 2010/2011 season. The 167-cm-tall right back obviously likes changing clubs as he left Cannes at the end of the 2011/2012 campaign, signing a contract with Creteil. After making 35 appearances in the league for les Beliers Jeremy Cordoval joined Nimes in the summer of 2013. The right-footed defender played for Les Crocodiles from 2013 to 2016 and then he made probably the best decision of his career as he signed a deal with Troyes. The Stade de l’ Aube club impressed in the 2016/2017 Ligue 2 campaign and, as a result, Jeremy Cordoval will have a chance to taste a top-flight football. The French footballer was born in Villeneuve-Saint-Georges on January 12, 1990 and his contract with Troyes expires on June 30, 2019.
Highlighted Team (Amiens):
Amiens are a French football club that compete in Ligue 1. Les Licornes (The Unicorns) finished the 2016/2017 Ligue 2 campaign in second place in the standings and, as a result, they secured promotion to the French top flight for the first time ever. Amiens got their job done on the final day of the season, with Emmanuel Bourgaud scoring a late winner in the game against Reims. The club was founded back in 1901 by a group of players from the Association du Lycee d’Amiens and nowadays les Licornes play their home games at Stade de La Licorne. The capacity of the venue is 12.097 and it was opened on July 24, 1999. Experienced midfielder Mathieu Bodmer joined the club in the summer of 2017 and he is considered one of the team’s best players. The experienced defender used to play for the likes of Lyon, Lille, and Paris Saint-Germain in the past. Amiens play their home games in white shirts and white shorts, while they wear black when playing on the road.
