Troyes vs St Etienne by Lucien

Knockout game for the French Cup, round of 16. Troyes played against Bastia on Saturday without a head coach. Bastia scored an early goal just in 10th minute, while in the end Troyes left with nine men and received a second goal with a penalty. The battle for Troyes to avoid relegation continues, however, to the present things are very difficult, as they are located at the bottom of Ligue 1 and ten points away from Toulouse. There is lot of criticism for the club owner, who sold two of their best players in the last days of the winter transfer period, while there is no coach yet to the team.

Normally after all this climate is quite surprising and unexpected that they will be interested more than they should for the French Cup. For the league they have a 0-6-7 record at home, being the only team without a win in front of their fans. Main attacking midfielder Fabien Camus and main centre forward Brayan Perea are both suspended as they received a red card to the game against Bastia. Centre back Mahamadou N'Diaye, centre back Mory Kone and also centre back Dusan Veskovac will miss again.

St Etienne made one of the best games on Saturday and certainly the most productive in offense, beating Bordeaux away from home with the score of 1:4. They found the rival nets with great ease and only in the seventh minute they had a two goals lead. In the second half they played a clever game with counterattacks, resulting to an emphatic 1-4 score.

They are clearly improved to the new year as after eight games in 2016 they count a 5-1-2 record regardless of the event. Their improved is now reflected to the league standings, where they caught Nice in the top three and they can fight for a Champions League ticket. The most encouraging fact for St Etienne is that they solved the problem they had usually away from home. To their last three away games they have no defeat (2-1-0). Defender and captain of the team Loic Perrin will miss again, the same goes on for centre forward Robert Beric, attacking midfielder Valentin Eysseric, right winger Romain Hamouma and striker Nolan Roux.

Troyes is facing many problems. In contrast, St Etienne playing better and better on the field and they are looking to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Cup. I think that they are much more ready in every line and can go away victorious from there.

    1) Camus and Perea wont miss the game of cup but next game of league1
    2) St. Etienne cannot win any game of cup in regular time even against team from league 4 Raon L’Etape
    3) Winning of St.Etienne over Bordeaux 4:1 was because of loaned gk from Troyes Bernardoni (he missed in 2 games 7 goals for Bordeaux)
    4) if you check history of games Troyes vs St.Etienne you will see St.Etienne never win 2 away games in roll against Troyes

    I think it’s most likely will be draw but to be on safe side it better +0.5 for Troyes as yesterday Sochaux let me down by winning Monaco instead draw. .

    Will Bernadoni also miss in tonight’s match Bordeaux against Nantes…? Tempted to play BTTS in that match

    When 18 years old genie Bernadoni left Troyes. It will be revival for Troyes and downfall for Bordeaux.
    I hope Bernadoni will play today and Nant put Bordeaux out of misery. Until coach of Bordeaux will realize what cheval de Troie he got it we can make some money :)
