Troyes vs Lens Kick Off Time

Event details:
NAME: ESTAC Troyes – RC Lens
DATE: 28 Jan 2023
TIME: 16:00 UTC
VENUE: Stade de l’Aube, Troyes, France

First place in Ligue 1 is within reach for Lens this weekend as they travel to Stade de l’Aube for a date with Troyes.

Les Sang et Or defeated Auxerre 1-0 last weekend, moving to within three points of the league leaders Paris Saint-Germain, while ESTAC are three points above the relegation line following a 5-1 defeat at Lille on Sunday.



Under the guidance of Australian Patrick Kisnorbo, they have been outscored 11-4 this year in four games played in all competitions.

The former Socceroos defender who enjoyed plenty of success as a coach down under is the first Australian to manage a Ligue 1 side.

The man who led Melbourne City to consecutive A-League Premiership titles has a lot of work to do when it comes to improving this team’s defending, with Troyes allowing the second-most goals in the French top-flight this season.



They are winless in seven successive home fixtures in this competition, with six draws and one defeat over that span, the longest run for them at Stade de l’Aube without earning maximum points since going 16 matches without a triumph between August 2015 and April 2016.

Troyes have failed to find the back of the net at home in 2023, though their only clean sheet of the campaign occurred at Stade de l’Aube versus Nantes (0-0) at the end of last year.

They have only defeated Lens once in their previous 12 top-flight encounters this century, losing all three matches against them since being promoted into Ligue 1 in 2021.
