Sochaux vs Niort Prediction and Match Preview

Sochaux v Niort
France Ligue 2
Date: Friday 26th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Bonal (Montbeliard).

Sochaux are in mid table on 13 points but it is so close in the bottom half of the table that the club will still need to push on and search for points. Last weekend they were able to beat Troyes 2-1 away from home which ended a 4 game win less streak. It was an important victory for the side.

At home they have mixed results after losing their last two games here although it should be noted that those defeats came against Metz and Orleans two of the better sides in the league. But they have lost more games at home than won so far this season.

Niort are in 8th place and four points clear of Sochaux so a win here and they could really stretch that lead and make the 20 points mark at the same time. Form though has been poor for the club who have just 1 win in their past five. They lost 3-0 away to Metz last weekend but that defeat was expected and they will be able to pick themselves up after that.

On the road Niort have not won a game for the past 3 matches and are finding it more and more difficult to pick up points on the road.
