Our Best Prediction and Betting Tips for Sochaux vs Valenciennes

Sochaux to win

After 3 matchdays in which Sochaux had forgotten how to score and win games, the team seems to be back to its best. In the previous match, they fought until the end to achieve a great victory. We hope that this time they will also get the three points, as they will have the support of the fans and they will be playing against Valenciennes, a team that is going through a bad moment.

Over 2.5 Goals

If the home team had not lost their good run of goals in the last few rounds, they would still be the top scorer of the tournament. However, they are still within the three teams with the most goals. We expect to see at least 3 goals in this clash, and we make it part of our Sochaux vs Valenciennes predictions because the home side also concedes a lot of goals.

BTTS

One of Valenciennes’ weaknesses is that they concede a lot of goals, and although they also score, these goals are not always enough to score points. Our final prediction for this interesting matchup is that we will see BTTS. Neither team has kept a clean sheet since the tournament restarted. In 5 of The Athenians’ last 6 matches, we have seen BTTS.

Sochaux vs Valenciennes Preview: On The Way To The Top

Sochaux

Coach Olivier Guegan is pleased that his team ended a run of three straight wins that had left them outside the promotion places. In the previous matchday The Lion Cubs visited an emblematic team in France, but now one of the worst teams in Ligue 2, Saint Etienne. This was a tough match because even though Sochaux started winning, Saint Etienne turned it around. In the last 5 minutes of the match, The Lion Cubs scored 2 more to turn the score around. 

Valenciennes

For a team that has gone seven games without a win, getting a point against the second-placed team in the table could have been a success. However for coach Nicolas Rabuel it was not, as they were leading with a goal from Ugo Bonnet in the 75th minute, but with only two minutes left, Metz scored to make it 1-1. With this result, The Athenians remain stuck in mid-table and are slipping further and further away from the promotion race.
