Valenciennes – Nancy : Preview & Prediction
The danger is clear for the Lorraine, 17th at two points of the first relegation. Incapable of creating anything offensively, the men of Patrick Gabriel choose regularly – with more or less success – the defensive option far from their bases, as recently at Niort (0-0) and Sochaux (1-0 defeat at the last minute). One week before the important reception of Quevilly, direct competitor, Nancy would be satisfied with a small point at VA. Northernists still not safe (12th), who will try to ride on their success (1-2) brought back from Niort last week. We can expect a closed match this Friday night on the lawn of Hainaut: will we see a winner?
Three of the last five games played by Valenciennes in front of their home crowd have resulted in a points split.
12 of the last 15 games played by VA on his home ground against a club in the last six have had a draw at half-time.
Only six goals have been scored in ASNL’s last four trips to the league.
Valenciennes is always cautious on her field, especially against her direct competitors in the second half of the table. Opposed to Lorrainers ready to block for 90 minutes to bring back at least one point, the North will have a hard time forcing the decision. The bet “No half-time / No end of match” is to be tried!
