Game info Troyes x Auxerre


Accumulating a fast of victories that reached five matches, Troyes returns to the field this Friday, November 4, trying to end the period of agony. It will host Auxerre in a clash that opens the agenda of the fourteenth round of the French Championship in its 2022/2023 season. It is the penultimate matchday before the Ligue 1 stop forced by the Qatar World Cup. The match will be held at the Stade de l'Aube in Troyes. The forecast is for the ball to start rolling at 20:00 UTC.


How does the French Championship 2022/2023 work?


Ligue 1 has 20 participants but goes through a downsizing process. It will have 18 clubs from the 2023/2024 edition. This did not change the format of the dispute. The teams face each other in turn and return. At the end of 38 rounds, whoever has the most points wins the title. According to the current ranking of UEFA, the entity that organizes continental tournaments, the top three places guarantee a place in the Champions League. Champion and vice director in the group stage. The third can get there, however, before it needs to go through the qualifiers. Whoever finishes fourth in the French Championship is guaranteed a place in the Europa League group stage. Fifth place guarantees a spot in the European Conference League. There was a change in relegation. The bottom four will be sent to Ligue 2, with just two moving up.



It was on September 18 that Troyes left the pitch celebrating the three-point victory. That didn't even happen in their stadium. It was at the meeting he had with Clermont. It scored 3 to 1. In the next five matches, they even managed to win three points. But he divided it into installments and accumulated the score of one win in three draws. In the other two matches, he was defeated.


On Saturday, October 29, he played a good role against the giants Paris Saint-Germain. At the Parc des Princes stadium, they were surpassed by 4 to 3. Twice they had the advantage on the scoreboard. However, he could not resist the greater technical power of the French Championship leader. With the defeat, he was stuck at 13 points (three wins, four draws, and six defeats).


Enough to occupy the twelfth position in the leaderboard when considering the tie-breaking criteria. As a principal, it has a slightly lower performance. It is in the fourteenth place in the ranking of the Ligue 1 hosts. Of the 18 points it played in column one, it won seven (one win, four draws, and one defeat). He scored nine goals and conceded ten goals.



Auxerre went through a period of turmoil much longer than what Troyes is currently going through. Starting on August 31, he reached eight starts. In the period, he only managed to score with two equalities. In six matches, he was defeated. They can breathe a little more relief as they beat home Ajaccio 1-0 on Sunday, October 30.


He scored in the eighth minute through Sakhi, who had a pass from Autret and kept the advantage until the end. The difference, however, was slight in the face of its much higher game volume. He had control of the ball for the shortest time (42%) but created 18 chances to shoot, with five going in the right direction. Defensively, he had almost no problems. Ajaccio had five shooting opportunities. However, only one was in the order of Auxerre's goal.


In this way, the team advanced to 12 points (three wins, three draws, and seven defeats), leaving the relegation zone. It took sixteenth place. He first posted outside the Z4. Two points above Strasbourg, seventeenth-placed and first team in the sticking region. As a visitor, however, he has the worst campaign in Ligue 1. Of the 18 points he played as column two, he won three (one win and five defeats). He scored six goals and conceded 16.
