Our prediction for this Ligue 1 match:
Troyes and Angers take on each other at Stade de l’Aube in what is expected to be a close Ligue 1 encounter. Troyes aim to put an end to their three-match losing run, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Angers. Bruno Irles’ men did suffer the heavy defeat at Parc Olympique Lyonnais, but their display was anything but poor. Both Andreas Bruus and Karim Azamoum are sidelined with injuries, while Abdu Conte is a major doubt.
Les Scoistes, on the other hand, are eager to record their first win of the season as well, and, taking everything into account, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Both Nabil Bentaleb and Halid Sabanovic are banned for the match, while the likes of Ulrick Eneme-Ella and Abdallah Sima miss the game with injuries for the visiting side.
