Draw

With 4 of the last H2H clashes between the sides ending in draws, including a 1-1 outcome back in November, it is not that surprising what we have picked as our first Caen vs Valenciennes prediction. Considering that Valenciennes enter this match on the back of 4 consecutive league draws and that Caen drew 4 of their last 6 home games and we really think that this enticing free betting tip should be given serious consideration.

Mendy to Score Anytime

Our next Caen vs Valenciennes prediction backs Caen’s top scorer Mendy (11 goals) to continue his recent hot streak and get on the scoresheet again. Mendy has scored 4 goals in Caen’s last 5 home matches and 5 in the last 10 rounds. He has scored in exactly 46% of all of Caen’s home games so far and really Mendy tends to find another gear when in front of his own fans.

BTTS

With all of the last 4 H2Hs high-scoring affairs and seeing both teams scoring we believe this could happen again. Our final Caen vs Valenciennes prediction is also backed by the facts that 3 of Caen’s last 4 games and 5 of Valenciennes’ last 6 had BTTS outcomes.

Caen vs Valenciennes Lineups and Team News

Caen

Caen’s promotion chances suffered a heavy blow last weekend when a painful 2-3 away defeat against Rodez was suffered. The forward actions were good but defensively the Vikings looked very poor. The home form remains solid with Caen losing just once on home turf all season (W7 D5).

Despite the recent disappointment the gaffer is expected to trust the same starting XI. Also, his experiment with a 3-5-2 shape in the second half last weekend backfired so sticking to the tested 4-3-3 formation is almost certain. Missing 3 fringe players due to injuries but all of the regulars are fit and ready to go.

Valenciennes

Valenciennes recorded a fourth consecutive draw last weekend when holding off promotion-chasing Bastia to a 2-2 result at home. Despite the solid displays and relatively few defeats, Valenciennes remain close to the danger zone as they haven’t won in the league since October 15th.

The team’s star centre-back Coffaut remains a major doubt but no other serious injury issues. Kaba’s role in midfield remains crucial and almost all forward moves these days are channelled through him. That’s why he is currently playing through an ankle injury with the help of injections.
