When Lyon plays Troyes at home on Friday night, they will be aiming to build on their 2-1 victory over Ajaccio.
The goal of Les Gones is to end PSG’s hegemony in Ligue 1, but that is easier said than done.
The home team’s returning Alexandre Lacazette is a player to keep an eye on, although injuries should prevent Moussa Dembele, Romain Faivre, and Maxence Caqueret from playing.
Contrarily, Bruno Irles’ team opened the current Ligue 1 season with consecutive defeats to Montpellier and Toulouse.
Given their fragile defense, we do not think the underdogs are capable of upsetting Lyon’s celebration at Parc Olympique Lyonnais.
Fares Chaibi, a midfielder, is still in the medical area, but he should be the lone absentee for the visiting team.
Lyon defeated Troyes 3-1 in their previous encounter at the location.
This game will take place on August 19, 2022, at 20:00.
Prediction: Home Win.
