France Ligue 2 – Sochaux v Caen Preview (24/4/21)

Match Preview


  • Locked in 7th position with a comfortable game above and below
  • Not won any of last 4 games
  • 5-7-5 home record has been fairly poor with too many draws
  • 10 of last 11 home games ended with under 2.5 goals
  • Squad at full strength


  • Conceding a late equaliser at home to relegation rivals Dunkerque (1-1) on Tuesday night was a blow
  • Hanging precariously just one point above the relegation playoff spot
  • Winless in last 9 games and form has been poor
  • 3-5-9 away record hasn’t been very good
  • No new injuries to worry about

Conclusion & Betting analysis

The big question is how much Caen want this? They don’t seem to be adapting well to this relegation battle they suddenly find themselves in and I am very worried for them. Their last 3 games are all against sides in the promotion race so this might be their last real chances against a supposed unmotivated opponent. I couldn’t be backing Sochaux at a price of around 2.20. They have nothing to play for and that always worries me around this time of year. I could see a draw. Caen aren’t very confident right now and would take anything they can, but there are so many question marks here.

Prediction: 1-1

Recommended bet: None
