Today we are off to Vive La France! The land of passion, good food and great football… with Le Mans v Tours taking the top spot! Firstly, we have Le Mans, who has played terribly in Ligue 2 last year and got regulated to the National League. They will be facing Tours who, on the other hand, had a great season in Championnat National 2 and were promoted. They will play like there are no more todays… or tomorrows.
Our Prediction For This Game:
French football is certainly interesting. There is no other league in Europe where the average bet is a draw. In today’s game, we had a few options, but we decided to put our money on under 2.5 goals. For this, 888sports gives us 1.73 in odds which is a great offer.
Le Mans has had a great start in the new season. No defeat so far, three wins and three draws. This is a great start for a newcomer and I think that they will play very carefully in today’s game. Three out of the five last games have ended in over 2.5 goals, but they have not played against a team that is as good as Tours.
Tours only managed to get 23 points last season and they finished last in Ligue 2. The gap between Tours and the team that was the next place above them was a massive 10 points! Rene Lobello had to take over the team and now their main goal is simply to play in Ligue 2 again. In the last five away games, they have scored two goals. All of the last five games ended with under 1.5 goals.
Reason for and against the tip:
✓ 8 out of 10 away games for Tours ended in under 2.5.
✓ Most of the games between these 2 teams end in a draw.
✘ The teams have a lot of pressure on them to get a big win today.
Tip: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 1.73 @888Sport
