Valenciennes vs Bordeaux Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Valenciennes vs Bordeaux will be a very interesting game and we have big expectations. Here are our predictions.
Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
Neither team out of the two we have here is a high-scoring one. At least, not this season or not to date. Valenciennes, in particular, have only scored twice in five games. Bordeaux have five goals in five games but they are the better team on paper and it is expected. As a visitor, however, they are very bad and have not scored a single goal. There are enough reasons to believe that this game will be an under.
Match Result Prediction: Draw
We think that there is a good chance for a draw here. The performances of the two teams have been similar and this will be a competitive match. Bordeaux are terrible on the road and Valenciennes are terrible in attack. We think that there is a good chance for a 0-0 draw in this game. Most matches between these teams have been close and we often see few goals.
Correct Score Prediction: 0-0 Draw
This is a rare case but we do not see any other option here. Bordeaux should be the stronger team on paper but their away games have been disastrous. Valenciennes were one of the weakest teams last season but they have definitely improved defensively. When we compare the Valenciennes vs Bordeaux line ups, it is obvious that the visitors have a big advantage on paper.
Valenciennes vs Bordeaux Team Previews
Valenciennes barely escaped relegation last season and in the new one, they have been surprisingly consistent. At least in the last few weeks. They got positive results against top teams like St Etienne and Guingamp. We do not expect much from them in the season overall but they are having a good period and their defense is hard to beat. Bordeaux will have to work very hard.
The visitors in this fixture have to improve their away performances as soon as possible or they will lose their chances for promotion. They haven't won on the road this season and this is their best opportunity to achieve that. The problem is that their attack has not been very effective and they don't score nearly enough goals. Nevertheless, they remain one of the top teams in the league.
