Chambly – Valenciennes : Preview & Prediction
Chambly won the right to play in Ligue 2 after a successful 2018-2019 season in National 1. Chambly ended the previous year out of 3 consecutive defeats in the championship at Avranches (2-0), against Dunkerque (1-2) and at Mans (2-1) and did not gain a lot of confidence in the preparation matches. Thus, the promoted in Ligue 2 has just obtained 2 draws against Dunkirk (0-0) and Quevilly (2-2) during friendly pre-season meetings. Valenciennes, undefeated since May 3, finished its friendly matches on a high note on July 19 with 1 success on Amiens (1-0). This victory follows a series of 4 draws at Auxerre (1-1) in the league and then against Kortrijk (1-1), Wilrijk (0-0) and Antwerp (0-0) in friendly matches. VA will not want to miss the opportunity to take points against a promoted to ideally launch his season.

Valenciennes is on a series of 6 games without defeat.
Chambly has not won for the last 5 games (2 draws and 3 losses).
Only one opposition: 0-0 in 2017 during a friendly match.
VA had lost only once in their last 6 trips to Ligue 2 last season.
Chambly, who will be learning in Ligue 2, should need a time of adaptation and should lose points on these first days.
