GREG was rewarded for his bravery on Thursday night as Slovan Liberec scored at Marseille to land a superb 10-11 nap.
He is focusing on one game from the French second tier today and says: “No nap but split stakes in two bets.”
Sochaux v Valenciennes (7pm)
Greg says: It’s not often teams in this league fare better away from home but that’s certainly the case for today’s visitors. They’ve had a decent start to the season, collecting 9 of their 12 points away from home, 3 wins against sides who are much stronger than today’s opponents.
The hosts have had a horrible start to the season and lie second bottom, winless and just 4 points collected form their 9 matches. Matches between the sides reveal an interesting trend. Twelve of the last 14 have seen BTTS with Valenciennes avoiding defeat in 5 of their last 9 visits here.
Given the form of these two there is a good case to be made for Valenciennes to avoid defeat at a decent price whilst BTTS has a chance. Sochaux haven’t scored in 4 so you could argue they’re bound to score sooner or later.
