They sought the game away at Evian doesn’t deserve that much attention or efforts. So they rested two of their most important players: winger Darbion and playmaker Nivet. The rest of the players that entered the field were apathetic and not really interested in the game, so last round shouldn’t be taken as a factor when judging their form. Their entire focus is on this game as they weren’t used with playing in the midweek, and now the points are more needed than ever. The important thing is that Troyes improved defensively. They are much more stable and confident in their interventions. Upfront they are capable of speedy and dangerous actions, especially through those guys that were rested last round.


Ajaccio finally managed to win in a dull and uninteresting game. The luck was on their side as the goals came following set pieces. We could clearly see how they reduced the engines and now organization is at a lower level than in previous rounds. Even if they kept a clean sheet defensive midfielders were not that solid as before, while the defenders’ clearances can be used as examples: “how not to…”. Forwards Mutu and Eduardo were too detached from anything going on around them, but like stated before, luck was on their side. There still is no proper link between midfield and forwards and as a result they rely a lot on long balls, that most the time miss their target completely.

Troyes will have a different face this round. They will be much more aggressive and will impose the rhythm of the play. Seeing that Ajaccio is not the kind of team able top strike on counters, 2.29 for Troyes is certainly worth.
