The club are now up into 10th in the table and finally in the top half of the table with an astonishing 12 draws from 22 games. However, they did lose to Toulouse3-1 last time out in the French Cup round of 16.
As for Troyes, they lost 3-1 to Lyon last time out and also lost to Toulouse 4-1 and Lille 5-1 just prior to this. Combine this with their 1-1 draw with Lens and it means they have let in 13 goals in four games and got just one point.
