*The odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing*

Victory for the hosts

The hosts are our pick to bag all the points in this Ligue 2 dwell. While Dunkerque has failed to replicate the good home run on the road, they should dominate this game against Valenciennes. The hosts have now won three and got two draws from the last five home games. They recorded three clean sheets in the last five home matches. On the flipside, Valenciennes seems to be more focused on defending and struggle to score goals after recording three consecutive draws ahead of this game.

Under 2.5

Few goals are expected in this Ligue 2 game. Both teams have been good at defending in recent games, so a few goals should be scored on matchday. The hosts have three clean sheets while Valenciennes has two clean sheets from the last five games. Four out of the last five meetings registered U2.5 goals.

Draw at half-time

We anticipate a defensive approach to this game from the onset. The visitors have challenges scoring goals and Dunkerque needs survival points. And based on the defensive record of these teams in recent games, we expect a tough first half duel that could end in a stalemate.

Dunkerque vs Valenciennes Match Preview and Analysis

Dunkerque and Valenciennes have met six times previously. Only one draws was registered in the previous meetings. Read our game preview for more details.


A strong home record in the last five home games hand Dunkerque some hopes ahead of this game. The hosts are currently second-last on Ligue 2 but 7 points above the last spot. A win could see them go above the relegation spot and this fixture against a team in the bottom half of the Ligue 1 is the golden chance to get the vital points.


The visitors have five-match unbeaten run ahead of this game. However, they should be wary of a more offensive Dunkerque in this trip. Most importantly, Valenciennes should improve their finishing if they are to get anything out of this game. The visitors lost 3-1 in the reverse game and this second encounter of the new season could be another humiliation if they only focus on defending.
