The fisture between Laval and Marignane in the French National League presents a match between the 2nd best home team, and the 2nd worst away team in the league.
Both teams have a poor form with Home getting 10pts and visitors getting 5pts from recent 8 matches.The home averages 1.92 goals scored per match, while visitors score 0.82 goals per match. The Home has 10pts from recent 4 matches (W3, D1), and visitors have 0pts (L4). There is thus an opportunity for the home team to remain in contention for the League 2 spot by winning to remain in contention and 1 point behind 3rd place Le Mans.
The visitors have poor attack, scoring 1 goal in recent 4 matches, but conceding at least one goal in 91% of their away matches. The host scored 9 goals in recent 4 matches, and have scored in 92% of their home matches, so we can expect goals from the host, while the visitors are unlikely to find the score sheet, seeing they have recorded 71% under 2.5 in their matches, and obtained 73% of their points at home.
The best result for the visitors against teams in the top half of the table is a goalless draw with 8yth place Boulogne which is a team in the very safe region with nothing to play for. I expect the host will be motivated to build on recent success, where the won two consecutive matches scoring 2 goals and 3 goals in an away and home matches where they conceded 1 goal and 2 goals, but remained determined to win by outscoring their opponents.
I sense there is a renewed fight in the team, and I expect it has to do with their desire to fight for a sport for promotion to League 2.
I am backing the home to come out on top in this fixture.
My bet here is for a Home Win.
