VENUE: Stade de I’Aube
Troyes hosts Montepellier in match day six of the French Ligue1 in what is expected to be a tight contest.
Troyes would be hoping to put behind their frustrating 0-0 home stalemate against Toulouse in their last Ligue 1 encounter by pipping the visiting Montepellier.
The hosts have been far from convincing off late managing a single win, two draws and suffered two defeats in their last coming into the contest and a win in this is dire.
The hosts currently lie fifteenth in the Ligue 1 Table with five points from five matches something manager J. Garcia would be keen to see his side improve on.
Montepellier hit the road to face Troyes hoping to sneak with the maximum points in what is expected to be a tricky trip.
The visitors will be hoping to bounce back from their infuriating 1-0 home defeat to Nantes in their latest ligue 1 outing with a home win.
The visitors are currently in deep form having managed one win, suffered three defeats and registered one draw in their last five matches coming into the clash.
The visitors currently lie seventeenth in the Ligue 1 standings with four points from five matches.
Both sides have won one of the last five matches between the two sides while the other three matches have ended in a draw.
Troyes probable line-up- Samassa, Deplagne, Herelle, Khauoi, Vizcarrondo, Darbion, Tinhan, Khauoi, Dingome, Niane, Grandsir
Montepellier probable line-up- Lecomte, Congre, Mendes, Mukiele, Roussillion, Ikone, Dolly, Piriz, Sessegnon, Ninga, Sio
