Orleans vs Valenciennes
2 early bets as perhaps the odds will decrease during the week.
Orleans is in a superb shape after a disastrous start of the season. They won last 4 games in a row without conceding. Something amazing for a team who lost some important players before the start of the season - and no doubt this was seen in thier early evolution( 3 defeats and 1 draw in opening 4 rounds). But coach Olle Nicolle had enough inspiration to back on track a team as Orleans. Their sign of comeback was versus a depleted Paris FC 4-0 in round 5. But now they are in a difficult situation as 4 starters will be suspended for this game: defenders Pinaud, Bouby and Monfray plus striker Cissokho. I guess is too much for any of Ligue2 team.
On the other side Valenciennes is a typical counter-attacking team when playing away. Not in a great shape with 4 defeats in last 5 games but was in lead over Ajaccio and Brest. Nasty for them is a bad defense with 15 goals conceded in last 5 games. Upfront not a bad team with 8 goals in last 4 games. They had some squad problems lately with captain Roudet missing and being not at 100 % fit but this break should be positive for Valenciennes. No suspended players for this trip but perhaps few injuries. Later team news will come.
Valenciennes is feeling great when playing at Orleans ( 3 wins in 3 games) Keeping in mind the circumstances I think Valenciennes can continue on the same path and to snatch a new away win vs Orleans. gl
