Match Result – Sochaux
History suggests Valenciennes will emerge victoriously from this clash but we beg to differ. The last 4 home games against Valenciennes resulted in 2 victories for Sochaux, 1 draw, and 1 narrow loss. Valenciennes scored only 2 goals in 360 minutes of football. Meanwhile, the current performance of Sochaux in the league has been impressive and the team deserved its 5th position. Valenciennes is down to the 17th position with only a point away from the relegation zone.
Both Teams to Score – No
Valenciennes, along with Dunkerque and Nancy, is the team with the worst-performing attacking players this season scoring only 14 goals in 16 games. In the 10 games that the two teams played against one another, we had 5 games resulting in no exchanges of goals. Meanwhile, Sochaux’s defense has been performing quite nicely so far with only 15 goals allowed in 16 games – one of the top-performing teams in that aspect of the game. The attack has some issues to deal with and the result is only 19 goals scored so far.
Under 2.5 Goals
5 of the last 6 games between these opponents ended with 2 or fewer goals being scored. 2 games resulted in no goals at all. As mentioned above, Valenciennes is one of the lowest goal-scoring teams in the league while Sochaux is one of the best-defending sides. It is difficult to make a case that this game will be a productive one no matter how much we hope for it.
Traditions will not play a role
As much as we want this to be an attractive game, statistics say otherwise. We will witness a tactical game with Sochaux dictating the tempo of the game and Valenciennes hoping for counterattacks. Chances are this is going to be a narrow 1:0 victory for the home side.
