Bordeaux vs Valenciennes prediction, odds and free tips 30/07/2022

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

After the suspense and possibility of being sent to the third rank of French football, Bordeaux was cleared to play in Ligue 2 just three days before the start of the season. Their first game is against Valenciennes at home and should be played on Saturday, but changes to the date and time of the match are still possible.

Bordeaux to Win

After being relegated from Ligue 1 last season, Bordeaux was supposed to play in the third rank of French football due to their financial issues, but that decision was changed and the Girondins will get a chance to fight for promotion back to Ligue 1.

Meanwhile, Valenciennes has struggled last season in Ligue 2 and they were close to the relegation zone in the end. So, the difference in quality between these two teams should be evident in this game and we expect Bordeaux to start with three points.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

The last time these two teams have met was all the way back in 2014, so there are no recent h2h stats to help guide us when it comes to betting on goals.

Still, we expect to see at least three goals in this match since Bordeaux averaged 3.67 goals per game in Ligue 1 last season, which was the highest average in the entire league.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

As we already mentioned, these two teams haven’t met recently, but we can still see both teams scoring in this match even though we expect the home team to win the game.

After all, both teams have scored in a whopping 68% of all Bordeaux matches in Ligue 1 the previous season, while the same thing happened in 53% of all Valenciennes games in Ligue 2 last season.

Bordeaux vs Valenciennes preview: Can Bordeaux find a way to focus on football?

Bordeaux

After getting relegated from Ligue 1, Bordeaux was then sent to the third rank of French football due to financial issues. So, the team’s entire offseason was spent trying to find a way to overturn that decision and Bordeaux finally managed to get that done a few days before the start of the season. So, the Girondins will play in Ligue 2 this season after all and they will hope for a quick return to Ligue 1.

Valenciennes

Last season was far from successful for Valenciennes after they ended it in the sixteenth place in Ligue 2 standings, only a few spots above the relegation zone. So, their fans were certainly not happy with these results and they are hoping to see much better performances from their team in the upcoming season.
