Valenciennes vs Sochaux
Valenciennes – Sochaux
Valenciennes was one of the performer of last win taking an un-expected win 1-0 on Lorient pitch. A well-organised defence and same lethal counter-attack – Valenciennes characteristic game when play on the road or versus top team. And after a incredible 4-2 win at home they beat also in reverse game Lorient taking them 6 points. For the moment, they collected 40 points with 8 more than Nancy so some little work to do in order to stay safe in last rounds. Their schedule is let’s say accessible so don’t expect Valenciennes to have problems in this end of the season. Roudet and Guezoui are missing here.
Sochaux remains unbeaten, having a series of 5 games without a defeat. But 3 draws in process. After superb win versus Nimes on the road, they played again against a promotion chaser Brest. Thay made again a good game finishing 1-1 after a good game, with plenty of chances to score, both GK’s having some incredible savings. Still this draw maintain Sochaux in the top 5 battle, having 5 points behind Chateauroux, but playing against Lorient and Clermont 2 teams who also searching a spot in first 5. Slim chances but are there. Ogier is suspended. In rest no fresh missing for this trip.
Both are saved now so less pressure on them. So open game with goals so back over 2.75 goas. gl
