Unless there is a huge turnaround, Caen will not be able to go back directly to Ligue 1, just one year after leaving it. Indeed, Stade Malherbe is currently only 13th in the ranking with 28 points and 13 less than the 5th. Despite a resumption of form following his two successes obtained consecutively, ahead of Chambly (0-1) and Niort (4-3), Pascal Dupraz’s men were kept in check last week in Le Havre (1-1).
For its part, Troyes is, as often, plunged into the race for accession. With 41 points, the players of Aube are 5th in the ranking and virtually qualified for the play-offs of this Ligue 2. However, Laurent Battles’ men have been scared lately by losing 4 games in a row to Clermont (3-2), Le Havre (1-0), Grenoble (1-2) and Lens (1-0). This black series ended last Friday with a victory obtained at home against Châteauroux (2-0).
