Troyes vs Tours by Lucien

Troyes didn't manage to get all three points couple of days ago when the team visited Nimes and stood to a 2:2 draw even though they were leading till the last moments of additional time. It was a very interesting game where the guests stood playing with a man less in 44th minute when forward Grandsir was excluded, worth to be said, they also missed a penalty kick in fifteenth minute and failed to take the lead. Second halftime was even more interesting, with the home team taking the lead in 52nd minute via Briancon.

Niane leveled up the scoreline in 63rd minute from a penalty kick, while the same player completely overturn the result in 79th minute with the home team staying also with a man less when midfielder Savanier got excluded two minutes later. Everything looked like Troyes will get all three points, but the team conceded a goal in fourth minute of additional time via Ripart - must be said, final result was somewhat fair this time. After this draw, Troyes remained at the second part of the table with three points more than relegating worried sides.

Hosts continue to miss defenders Mory Kone and Rincon, who anyway didn't perform so far for the team, but they also can't count at defendeer Johan Martial (5/1) and suspended forward Samuel Grandsir (6/0).

Tours, on the other side, is having a really poor start into the new season as the team has only one victory out of first eight matches and doesn't look that competitive overall on the field. They didn't look that great in previous season as well and the team needs to worried regarding their status in case the team doesn't improve soon enough. In the most recent game, they suffered 0:2 defeat at home to Bourg Peronnas last Tuesday evening, being unable to resist the opponent in the latter phase of the match.

The game itself was quite equal, but the visiting side showed much more fighting spirit and determination towards the end, scoring two goals via Boussaha in last fifteen minutes, without the hosts being able to respond later on. With 1-3-4 record in Ligue 2, the team is currently just a point away from rock bottom placed Niort and needs to improve. They are capable of scoring, no doubt about that, however the team concedes with ease, being currently the worst defensive lineup with fifteen goals conceded for now.

Visiting side won't be counting at important defenders Jonathan Gradit (6/0), Florian Miguel (7/0) and Cyriaque Louvion (5/1), plus goalkeeper Bingourou Kamara who anyway didn't perform so far.

With three consecutive defeats for Tours, I don't see the visiting team responding here in a better manner. Players of Troyes surely have what it takes in order to get all three points here, but overall, I believe the game will be open from both ends as well, so goals here shouldn't be surprise. Troyes alone might be capable of scoring three. Odds are more than valuable in my opinion.
