Valenciennes will welcome Le Havre to Stade du Hainaut for a matchday 33 fixture in France Ligue 2. The last meeting on 6th November 2021 ended in a 0-0 draw. Both sides have met fourteen times in the most recent seasons. Valenciennes has won 2 matches, and Le Havre triumphed in 7. Recent outings average 2.79 goals, while both teams score 43% of the time.
Valenciennes’s latest fixture against Auxerre ended in an away 1-0 loss. I expected more from Les Athéniens. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.
Le Havre’s recent game against Dunkerque ended in a home 2-1 win. Le club doyen dominated the game and deserved the win. Le Havre had good chances in both halves and scored in the 19th and 89th minute.
So far, Valenciennes plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.25 points per away game on average compared to 1.00 points at home. Although Valenciennes is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 25% home clean sheets.
Le Havre has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. It is quite intriguing that they prefer playing on the road. Le Havre has collected 1.40 points on average per away game, compared to 1.35 at home.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Le Havre.
Still, I expect a close game and don’t think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.51 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 48% of Valenciennes’s home and Le Havre’s away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
