They stay in mid-table however are just four focuses over the drop zone.
This game should be closer to being decided than it appears. Troyes, despite their recent loss to Marseille, have improved under new coach Patrick Kisnorbo, despite their deceitful performance against Brest, which resulted in just four shots on target.
Nonetheless, Lille ought to remain the favorite. Troyes has only won once in their last ten league games, while Lille has only lost once in their last nine.
