Troyes take on Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday as the 2021-22 Ligue 1 campaign begins, with the visitors looking to reclaim their domestic crown after finishing second behind Lille last season. Troyes, meanwhile, won Ligue 2 to return to France's top flight for the first time since being relegated in 2018.

Indeed, Troyes have regularly fluctuated between France's top two divisions in recent years, suffering three relegations from Ligue 1 since finishing 19th in the 2012-2013 season.

Laurent Batlles was handed his first role as a manager when being appointed as Troyes head coach in 2019, and he ultimately delivered on his promise by winning Ligue 2 in only his second season in charge of the club. The 45-year-old, who played for seven different French clubs before retiring in 2012, will be fully aware of the size of the task in front of him this campaign, though.

After all, since their relegation from Ligue 1 in 2007, Troyes have not spent more than one season at a time in the top division, essentially becoming one of France's most recognisable yo-yo clubs. However, with several Ligue 1 clubs opting not to spend this summer due to the financial uncertainty caused by COVID-19 and the issues surrounding France's television deals, Batlles will be hoping that the 10 players signed by the club so far for around £13m in total can make a huge difference to his side's prospects of survival. Of course, these figures pale in comparison to the lavish amounts PSG have spent since their Qatari takeover a decade ago, but nothing will be expected of Troyes on Saturday in terms of the result in any case.
