Lorient will face Troyes on Sunday - Ligue 1


Troyes will host Lorient at the Stade de l’Aube on Sunday (October 23) afternoon in Ligue 1.

The hosts have had mixed results this season but have particularly struggled for results recently. They played out a 1-1 draw against newly promoted Ajaccio in their last league outing. Troyes looked set to come away with maximum points after Jackson Porozo’s 76th-minute strike but were pegged back two minutes from time.

Troyes are 12th in the standings with 12 points from 11 games. They will now look to shake off their latest results and return to winning ways.

Lorient, meanwhile, have enjoyed a brilliant start to life under manager Regis Le Bris and will fancy themselves as early European contenders. They were held to a goalless draw by Stade Reims in their last game. Lorient will be gutted not to have come away with all three points after playing the entirety of the second half with a numerical advantage.

The visitors are second in the standings with 26 points from 11 games. They will now look to continue their good run of form this weekend.
