Predictions and Best Odds for Valenciennes vs Rodez

Rodez is the worst team in the league this season, but still with a chance of remaining in Ligue 2, and facing a Valenciennes side who is all but assured of their status is a challenge they are looking forward to.

Valenciennes to Win

Both teams haven’t played well for some time now with Valenciennes getting only one win in their last seven matches while Rodez going without a single one in the same period. Rodez is one of four teams that have played the most draw matches this season at nine, and Valenciennes is not that far behind in that aspect going for eight split games. Strangely, Valenciennes had six of that eight draws while playing at home, and their streak of four in a row was stopped two weeks ago when they beat Laval. Overall, Valenciennes has a seven-game unbeaten run at home while Rodez’s three wins away during the last two months were earned in the French Cup.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Rodez is one of the lowest-scoring teams in the Ligue, but in this Valenciennes vs Rodez prediction we are going for both teams to score a goal. The reasoning behind that choice is the current form of both teams. With nothing to debate about anymore regarding the way they play when it comes to their ambitions, Rodez has opened the gate and started playing attacking football with a lot of goals. In their last seven matches, only one ended without both teams scoring a goal. Valenciennes had four out of the last five matches with the same stat line, and with their h2h firmly in the BTTS direction, it makes sense to go with the flow of things.

Over 2.5 Goals

With the continued thought of some goals being scored in this Valenciennes vs Rodez matchup, we are also going for at least three goals being earned. The visiting team had three out of their last seven games with over 2.5 goals, while Valenciennes’ record during the same period is at five. For the season, both teams had eight ‘over’ games while in their h2h matchup two out of five played matches ended with at least three goals being scored.

Preview for Valenciennes vs Rodez prediction: Team News and Important Information

Valenciennes

The home team is closer to the relegation zone than in the fight for promotion so their mind is firmly in the direction of continuing their good form at their stadium than contemplating other aspects of their season. There is only one injury concern for Valenciennes, Quentin Lecoeuche won’t be able to play.

Rodez

The players of Rodez are very well aware of what needs to be done to save their season. There are still 15 matches to play before the end of the season, and their total of only four wins, the lowest mark in the league, is not enough to see them stay in Ligue 2. There are a couple of injuries to report for Rodez, Loris Mouyokolo, and Amiran Sanaia are sidelined.
