Predictions and Top Picks for Valenciennes vs Laval

Valenciennes and Laval are meeting in an important clash for both teams in a bid to get some breathing space from the relegation-threatened teams.

Under 2.5 Goals

Valenciennes is tied for the worst efficiency rating in Ligue 2, they only scored 18 goals. Saying that it is not a surprise that they are among the best under 2.5 goals teams this season. They had 15 out of 21 games played where teams scored fewer than three goals. Laval is more of an ‘over’ team, but mostly when they play at home. As visitors, they had six ‘under’ games out of ten including three out of the last five played. When it comes to their h2h record, three out of the last five matches ended with no more than two goals in the net.

Both Teams to Score – No

The record when they play against each other speaks for itself. They are on a streak of five games when both team didn’t score a goal. And with Valenciennes being one of the worst-scoring teams in the league, it makes sense to predict that this match will be a low-scoring affair as well. In a strange circumstance, in the last five league games Valenciennes played, they had three BTTS games compared to Laval who had only one.

Draw

Out of the last ten matches these teams played against each other, only three ended with points split. However, with the odds against both teams scoring a lot of goals, it seems reasonable to conclude that this match will be aimed at a possible draw. For the season, Valenciennes had eight draws while Laval did it only three times.

Match Preview and Team News for Valenciennes versus Laval

Valenciennes

The club’s biggest successes were accomplished in lower leagues. They were the Ligue 2 champions on a couple of occasions, the last time in 2006. Last season they barely escaped relegation for uncommon circumstances. They have six wins this term, but with one of the worst attacks in the league it is difficult to get wins regularly, that is the main reason why this team is so close to the relegation zone. There are four injury-related issues for this match: Team captain Mathieu Debuchy, Quentin Lecoeuche, Julien Masson, and Aeron Zinga are out with health issues.

Laval

They are a club that never played a significant role in French football and their biggest achievement was earned last season when they have crowned Championnat National champions which enabled them to get promoted into Ligue 2. With two wins out of their last three matches, they are on their way to securing at least another season in the Second Division. Laval also has some serious injury problems: Maxime Hautbois, Yasser Balde, Elhadji Pape Diaw, Julien Maggiotti, Steven Nsimba, and Francois-Xavier Fumu Tamuzo are injured.
