Sochaux had an up and down season last year and they will want to adopt a more consistent policy as they enter the 2nd game of the new Ligue 2 season.

Valenciennes beat Auxerre by 3-1 in the first day of the new season and because they managed to score 3 goals, the only side in Ligue 2 to do this they are top of the league. But of course they will realise this is extremely early days to get carried away and excited. But it is a positive start.

The bookmakers have Sochaux as the odds on favourites at around the 1.91 mark. Valenciennes despite their heroics last week are as much as 3.75 to win this game and are considered as the long outsiders.

Sochaux vs Valenciennes: Head to Head

  • The teams last played here in 2017 where the home side won 3-1.
  • Valenciennes have not won at this ground in 9 years.
  • In recent matches the most common result at this ground is 1-1.
  • Home or away the last 4 meetings has seen both teams to score.

Sochaux vs Valenciennes: Prediction

We sense goals in this match and yes the easy choice would be to back the home side, but they don’t have our confidence after last week’s game.

So our market here will be to see goals and we will back over 2.5 goals as our main bet.

We also feel the game will open up very quickly so expect to see a lot of action in the first half of the game.

This Ligue 2 game between Sochaux and Valenciennes has the ingredients to be a good game of football.
