Caen: Not afraid ( Recent Form: L L W W D )
Caen is 13th in the standings with 28 points after 24 rounds. This team also knows how to be self-sufficient and has only a modest goal of relegation. Caen is 7 points better than the relegation group, a temporary safe distance but cannot be sure. Caen's form is gradually improving after a series of 2 consecutive defeats in Ligue 2 in mid-January. They are unbeaten in the last 3 rounds with 2 wins and 1 draw. The home team is maintaining the ability to shoot regularly with 26 goals in 24 matches. But their defense needs to work better when conceding 30 goals. Welcoming Troyes at home, Caen has nothing to fear even though the two teams are standing very far apart on the table. Simply because since the first two teams met, Troyes has never won a victory over rivals at home. Besides, Caen also played very well in recent rounds when losing only 1/5 matches in his holy place.
Troyes: An erratic performance ( Recent Form: W L L L W )
Troyes is ranked 5th in the rankings with 41 points. This is a guaranteed position for them to attend the promotion play-off, but Troyes wants more. They want to win more points to reach the top 2 to gain direct promotion. However, Troyes needs to revisit this goal after the lackluster performances. The visitors have experienced 4 consecutive defeats in Ligue 2 and have just enjoyed the fun over the weekend. Troyes is a special team that doesn't accept any points. The proof is that from the beginning of the season until now, they have drawn only 2 matches and have received 9 defeats. Because of that aggressiveness, Troyes may have to suffer more. Remember that Caen is the team assessed by the experts in this match. It is no coincidence that Troyes has not been able to win over his opponents over the years. If you continue to enter the game in a friendly manner, Troyes will pay a very expensive price.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, Troyes is feeling extremely unstable and could lose the top 5 in the next round. Poor performance in recent times is the reason that makes Troyes narrow the gap. Meeting Caen in this round is an opportunity for Troyes to prove his strength and ensure a safe position. However, Caen always showed himself as an opponent that brought many difficulties for the visitors. 14 times before meeting, Caen even prevailed with 7 wins and Troyes only won 5. Even in recent matches, Caen still proved a little better after having defeated the opponent 3 times.
