Our football match prediction:
Thanks to Nabil Fekir’s late goal Olympique Lyon recorded a 3-2 win over title holders Monaco at the weekend. Les Gones proved their worth in the triumph over les Rouges et Blancs, but they sit in sixth position in the Ligue 1 standings ahead of Sunday’s football match against Troyes. Olympique Lyon have been scoring goals for fun in all competitions this season and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at the newcomers this weekend. Mariano Diaz scored his seventh goal of the season in the 3-2 victory over Monaco and the opposition defenders are likely to have their work cut out for them when facing the former Real Madrid starlet. Troyes were more than fortunate to hold Lille to a 2-2 draw in their last league match and, taking everything into account, there is a big value in betting on the visitors, who are eyeing a place in the Champions League.
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 (Olympique Lyon):
Commonly referred to as Lyon, Olympic Lyonnais is the French club which play their games at the Parc Olimpique Lyonnais with a capacity just a pinch short of 60,000. Lyon is one of the most popular clubs in France with a vast fan base on par with Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique de Marseille. The club achieved moderate success during the 1960s and 1970s led by the likes of Bernard Lacombe and Jean Djorkaeff, while the golden era of the French side came at the start of the new millennium when Lyon began to achieve greater success both in France and on the international level. It was not until 2002 that Lyon won their first ever Ligue 1 title which sparked an ongoing national record-breaking streak of seven successive titles. During that time Lyon were regular participants of the UEFA Champions League. The French club reached quarter-finals on two occasions, while they even played in the semi-finals in the 2009-10 season.
