Laval vs Valenciennes Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Laval vs Valenciennes will be a curious fixture between two teams that have improved a lot in the new season. Here are our predictions.
Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
We expect a tough match here despite the obvious difference in class that the teams have portrayed. Laval have been unbelievable and right now, they seem to be the best team in the league. Their defense is also ranked 2nd in the league, which makes us believe that they will probably keep a clean sheet in this fixture. Valenciennes had some good moments at the earlier stages but right now, they seem to be struggling a lot.
Match Result Prediction: Laval to Win
Laval already beat some of the top teams in the league this season and cannot afford to drop points against one of the weakest sides right now. Laval already have a lead at the top and there is a good chance that some of their main competitors will drop points this round. Laval should be able to beat Valenciennes with ease after the few recent performances we saw from them.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Laval
Laval are the top team at the moment but it is not that much because of the attack. They score less than 2 goals per game on average. Their main strength is the defense line and they will not concede a goal against the weakest attack in the league. When we compare the Laval vs Valenciennes line ups, we think that the home side has a massive advantage right now.
Laval vs Valenciennes Team Previews
When did Laval become this strong? This is the question we ask ourselves before every round in Ligue 2. Laval were fighting for their place in the league last season and right now, they are the main contender for promotion. The team has the 2nd best defense in the league and we think that if they start scoring more goals, their chances for Top 5 are huge.
As expected, Valenciennes have been terrible. The team barely survived the previous season in Ligue 2 and it will be the same struggle this year. This team simply has no attack. They have the worst stats since the start of the season and have scored only three goals in eight matches.
