Rodez vs Valenciennes: Top free betting tips

Rodez aims to return to their winning form at Stade Paul-Lignon when they host Valenciennes in the next Ligue 2 engagement on Saturday, 26 August. The Athenians make an appearance in this game with the focus on ending their winning drought in the season.

Match result prediction: Rodez to win

Valenciennes have registered two defeats and a draw in the three league outings in Ligue 2. On the other hand, Rodez has also featured only one victory in that course, along with one defeat and a draw. The Blood and Golds have also gone undefeated in the last five H2Hs against Valenciennes and won two of them. Additionally, the Athenians have lost the last two successive road fixtures in Ligue 2. Hence, we back Rodez to collect all three points in this game.

Both teams to score prediction: No

Rodez has found the back of the net in four of the last five league outings at Stade Paul-Lignon while keeping two clean sheets. The Blood and Golds have also secured three clean sheets in the previous five matches against Valenciennes. On the other hand, the Athenians failed to find the back of the net in two of the recent three league outings, conceding seven goals in that course. Based on these statistics, we predict only Rodez will be able to get on the scoresheet in this game.

Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Rodez

Rodez has found the back of the net more than once in the last two consecutive league outings at Stade Paul-Lignon. The Blood and Golds have also scored multiple goals in two of the last five meetings against Valenciennes. On the other hand, the Athenians’ defence has been caught napping previously as they conceded three or more goals in two of the recent three matches in Ligue 2. Given the current scenario, we predict a 2-0 lead before the referee blows the full-time whistle.
