Pau favourites to open the scoring
We are backing Pau to be ahead in this game any minute. The visitors are less worried about their form compared to Dunkerque that is struggling to overcome inconsistencies. While three of Dunkerque’s three defeats in the last six games have been away from home, scoring an early goal against Pau wouldn’t be easy. We premise this on the defensive record of these teams in the last five games.
Goals on one side
Secondly, the possibility of only one team finding the net in this game is high. Despite being weak away from home, Dunkerque has been more aggressive on home soil. The hosts haven’t lost at home in their last four home games and could be a tough side to break down in this game. The visitors are equally strong defensively, so even as we back Pau to score first, we expect a tough match that could have only one team finding the net.
A good home record and in the last four home games gives Dunkerque confidence ahead of this Ligue 2 game. On the flipside, Pau’s quest for a place in the top five will depend on how they perform in this game. Thus, we expect the visitors to stage a strong in this trip.
