Their only encounter was won by Sochaux away from home with a 0-2 scoreline.
Sochaux vs Rodez Prediction
Sochaux was on the road in their last two matches in the campaign. So they will be glad to return back to the comforts and advantages of home.
Their previous encounter was with Guingamp which ended in a 1-1 draw away from home. However, their prior home match with Le Mans gave them all three points along with a 1-0 clean sheet score.
Rodez, on the other hand, lost to Lorient in their previous encounter with a 0-1 scoreline. To make things worse, they failed to win against Sochaux at home earlier in this season.
So, the odds will be against Rodez when playing away from home after losing 0-2 to the same contingents almost four months back.
Even with the home ground advantage, the odds for a home win are 2.15 which is too risky to be placed. So, as a safer option, it will be better to go with lower odds at 1.50 with DNB upon the host.
Furthermore, both teams have averaged only 1.0 goals per match in the campaign so far. So, it will not be a high scoring affair at Montbeliard.
Hence, the punters can go with another safe bet at 1.44 in the goals area as the match is likely to end with under 2.5 goals in ninety minutes.
