Sochaux to Win

The last match between these two teams was a classic one – it was in the semi-finals of promotion playoffs last season and we saw two missed penalties for Paris FC, a red card for them, and a winning goal in the stoppage time of the game.

So, we can see this being another exciting and close game, and we can see Sochaux coming out on top once again, especially since they will now host the game, unlike in that previously described thriller.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Three of the last four h2h meetings between Sochaux and Paris FC have gone over 2.5 total goals and we expect to see more of the same in their upcoming duel as well.

That being said, last season Sochaux averaged 2.13 goals per game in the league, while Paris FC averaged 2.34 goals per game in Ligue 2, so this is far from a certain bet.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

We saw both teams score in three of the previous four head-to-head duels between Sochaux and Paris FC, so we wouldn’t be surprised if that’s the case in this game too.

On top of this, both teams scored in 50% of all Paris FC matches in Ligue 2 the previous season, while the same thing happened in 47% of all Sochaux games in the league last year.

Sochaux vs Paris FC preview: Will we see another classic from these teams?

Sochaux

After finishing fifth in Ligue 2 last season, Sochaux got a chance to fight for promotion in the playoffs and they managed to eliminated Paris FC in the semi-finals. However, the team then fell to Auxerre on penalties, so we will once again see them in the second rank of French football, with their fans probably hoping for the breakthrough this season.

Paris FC

It’s been more than forty years since Paris FC last played in the top flight of French football, but the investment from the Kingdom of Bahrein in 2020 clearly put the club among the main favourites to get promoted ever since. And the team was close last season, finishing fourth in the standings, but ultimately falling in the relegation playoffs to Sochaux, their opponent in the first round of the new Ligue 2 season.
