They are currently the second-best home team in the campaign. Also, the home team is unbeaten at home in their 10 attempts at home so far in the contest.
Even though the overall form is good, Valenciennes will have problems when playing on the road. Evidently, the visitor has had a mixed form in their away games as they marked all possible outcomes three each in their form. Also, they have only one win in their last five away games.
As such, Valenciennes has problems at the back in their away games. In the meantime, Nancy will be at their best at home despite trailing behind the guest in the league table. Hence, Nancy has more chance of winning the game in ninety minutes.
