Conclusion & Betting analysis

Really hard match to predict and anything could happen! Both sides are capable of anything on the day, although I do suspect there might be a few goals. If I had to take anything then it would be over 2 but I couldn’t back it with any assurity. I personally think Chambly prefer being away, whilst Niort are far more comfortable at home. So this is an interesting match up in that sort of tactical way. Maybe something like a 1-1 draw could be on the cards but really this is a clear no bet sort of match.

Prediction: 1-1

Recommended bet: None
