The round of 16 of the French National Cup divides into three playing days. Three names of teams that will participate in the quarterfinals are already known. Tonight the next group of clubs will begin to fight for other free spots. Lens from Ligue2 welcome Troyes from Ligue1 at their Felix Bollaert Stadium. Both sides perform bad in their championships. Will they score each other?
Last year the modest Bergerac beat sensationally Lens and eliminated them from the round of 32 of the French Cup.
This season the Blood and Gold began their cup campaign from the earliest stages. In November they crushed Noeux-les-Mines at away with a huge score 0:5. In December and January they played two home games and beat Stade de Reims and Boulogne, respectively with the same score 3:2. Both in extra time. In the end of the past month Lens faced with Stade Briochin and beat them 0:1 in the round of 32.
The former prominent Ligue1’s club risks to be relegated from Ligue2 to Championnat National. They dropped deeply from the very beginning of the tournament. They lost seven opening fixtures. Then they improved their results avoiding long winless streaks. They won for the last time just after the Christmas vacation. Then they have been drawn twice. Two losses are in the middle of draws.
The hosts possess the sixteenth rank with 26 points after 24 games.
Last year Auxerre stopped Troyes in the round of 64 by winning in extra time. Actually Troyes have no long cup way. They played one successful game against Saint-Etienne. They eliminated the Saints after the penalty series.
The guests returned to Ligue1 after the short absence. Nowadays they risk to be relegated back being the penultimate team. They earned 24 points and have one reserved fixture. They started well and performed more or less good to the middle of October. Then they have never been drawn. Their black line counts ten losses with small number of wins.
The last two H2H meetings took place one year ago and ended with draws, 0:0 and 1:1.
The last six Lens’ games ended with under 2,5 in total. Lens have conceded in their last three games. The last three Troyes’ games ended with under 2,5 in total.
Tonight two weak clubs from the different leagues meet each other. We think this clash has no an evident favorite. The hosts maintain a relatively good form in Ligue2. The visitors have a recent positive experience of scoring to the national giants such as Monaco and Marseille. We expect their goal at Felix Bollaert as a minimum. Lens did not leave the field without goal for in the current cup campaign. We believe, they will continue these series against Troyes. Thus, our betting advise is both teams to score (yes).
