Best Tip: Caen to win

As training goes on this week and the Caen players ready themselves for this game, the bookmakers have predicted a win for them. The odds and our pre-match statistics below suggest the same, as does the historical head-to-head (H2H) data we take advantage of in our predictive algorithms. The Stade Michel-d'Ornano hasn't been an easy place to go for Valenciennes in the past, and we we think that will be the case again on Friday evening. A win / draw / win home win is our tip.
