Top Predictions and Odds for Rodez vs Sochaux

Sochaux has taken second place in the rankings, and now is looking to further bolster their chances of promotion to Ligue 1.

Sochaux to Win

Rodez has won only once in their last five games, but they are without a league victory in the new year. Last week they drew away to Metz who was left frustrated by their inability to score. Sochaux had a negative run of three straight losses before they regrouped and won two matches in a row. With a 4-0 trashing of Valenciennes last week they have taken over the second place away from Bordeaux on goal difference and will be looking to further evaluate their chances of progressing to Ligue 1 by taking three points at Rodez. The first game of the season between these sides ended with a 1-0 Sochaux win.

Over 2.5 Goals

In the last five h2h matches, there was only one game that ended with more than two goals scored, and it was almost three years ago. The final four were low-scoring affairs with Sochaux winning three straight matches. For the season, however, Sochaux is the best ‘over’ team in the league with 13 matches that had at least three goals on the record, and Rodez is at seven games.

Sochaux to Score First

The visiting team is expected to dominate proceedings, and with their agenda firmly in place, they are predicted to score as early as possible. Rodez failed to score in their last three h2h matches, the last one was this season when Sochaux won by a single goal difference. Interestingly, Sochaux scored first in their last three matches in the league.

Rodez versus Sochaux Team News and Match Preview

Rodez

The home team never played in Ligue 1, and in 2019 they finally secured their passage to Ligue 2 after 26 years in lower-division football. Last season they barely survived in the Second Division, and this season things look more of the same. They are in the relegation zone struggling to get wins. There are some injury concerns for coach Didier Santini: Three defenders are unlikely to play, and those are Joris Chougrani, Kevin Boma, and Amiran Sanaia.

Sochaux

They are the more famous club, a two-time champion, but granted that was over 90 years ago. Sochaux has played plenty of seasons in Ligue 1 and is aiming to come back next season. The biggest concern is their away form, they have lost five out of ten games while being a guest team, and visiting Rodez, a team that is fighting against relegation, is probably what Sochaux players need right now to continue their winning streak. There are no injury problems for the visiting team.
