Laval or Draw

Niort lost all of their last 4 games and as a result, they sit in last place now. They have also failed to win any of their last 7 H2H clashes against Laval (D4 L3). This is why we think our first Niort vs Laval prediction makes a lot of sense.

Over 0.5 Laval Goals

Laval have been struggling to keep up with the pace of the leaders but they continue to have a potent attack. Laval scored in 5 of the last 6 rounds. Now they face a Niort defence that has kept a single clean sheet in 13 home matches this season.

Laval to Score First

Our final Niort vs Laval prediction is a continuation of the previous betting tip. We not only believe Laval will score but we also think they will score the first goal of the match. Laval are known as the fastest-starting team in the entire division. So far they scored 13 of their 31 goals, or 42%, inside the opening 30 minutes of matches. At the same time, Niort are starting their home games slowly. On average they don’t score at home until the 50th minute.

Niort vs Laval Lineups and Team News

Niort

Niort lost their first game under their new manager Simondi. In a similar fashion to early displays the Stags lacked cutting edge on their visit to Pau and were deservedly beaten 0-1. Now unable to score in 3 of the last 4 rounds and in deep trouble.

Midfielder Benchamma, regular target-man Merdji and backup striker Bentil are all doubtful and in danger of missing again. After his first test, the new coach Simondi might be a bit braver with his lineup and unhappy with what he saw last weekend now changes, especially in the forward positions can be expected.

Laval

Laval suffered their third consecutive defeat last Saturday when edged 1-2 at home by Paris. The display was not that bad and yet Laval struggled to control the proceedings. Laval’s best attacking midfielder Maggiotti is sidelined. Ever since he went out the forward actions stalled. At least, striker Elisor shrugged off a knock quickly and he could play. Also, the important defender Baudry is back from a ban and will start.
