Le Mans vs Rodez Prediction
With not much of an h2h history in the books, the teams will be locking horns for the fourth time in the overall and second time in the French Ligue 2. Since Rodez has got the better of the host in all their previous encounters, chances of winning the game seem bleak for the home team.
Miseries have been piling on Le Mans this season and it does not seem to stop. The host is on a six-game winless run with five losses in all major contests.
Their previous encounter was on the road against Sochaux. The match ended in a 1-0 scoreline favoring Sochaux. Sadly, the 3-2 win against Orleans in early December was their previous win at home.
Les Mucistes had only one win in their recent six home matches across all major competitions.
Even so, Richard Dezire would be hopeful since four of his team’s overall six wins have come at home. So, if Le Mans can do anything it will be at their home ground.
Rodez is on a four-game unbeaten streak in their schedule lately. Their previous encounter against Nancy at home ended in a 1-1 draw.
Besides, Le RAF has been unbeaten in their last two away games in the campaign. Also, with 27 points in the league, they are six points ahead of the home team.
As such, the punters can go with Rodez to probably create more opportunities in the clash. Since Le Mans cannot be written off at home, it is safer to go with a double chance in the game. Also, we can expect both teams to score at least a goal each within ninety minutes.
