Rodez vs Nancy Prediction
It will be a close call for the punters to find a full-time winner in the match. We have to consider many factors to see who is the favorite to win at Rodez. Both teams are not at their prime form in the campaign currently. With an eight-point lead in the table, Nancy will have a slight edge over Rodez in the match.
Rodes are winless in their past five matches overall with their recent clash ending in a 1-1 draw with Valenciennes at home. After three consecutive losses, the host has managed to draw their last two fixtures.
Nancy has been winless in their recent three clashes with two successive losses and a draw in the end. Their previous encounter was on the road against Le Mans and both teams scored a goal each to share the spoils.
From their overall form, Nancy has only three losses in the last ten fixtures. In the meantime, Rodez has only two wins in the same period in all major competitions in their schedule. Besides, Rodez will have their home ground advantage over Nancy.
Laurent Peyrelade and his team have taken a dip in form at home lately with just one win in their past five league home matches. Also, they have been winless in their past two attempts at home. Thus, the host cannot be counted on to have the game under their control.
On the other hand, Nancy will have the advantage of league experience. Since Rodez has been just promoted from the Championnat National, they have little experience playing with the upper-tier teams.
Nancy has not won an away game in the campaign so far this season. But they have lost only three of their 11 away fixtures in their run. Hence, Nancy will have the best chance for their first away win in the league season when facing Rodez. If not, they also have the probability to draw the game and take something from it.
So, the punters can rely on Nancy to show better composure in the game with their more understanding of the league. Despite their poor away form, Nancy will be closer to creating chances in the game. To be safe, it is better for the punters to go with a double chance.
Since their only h2h in recent times ended in a 1-1 draw. We can probably expect both teams to score goals in ninety minutes despite the result.
