Pau will welcome Rodez to Stade Nouste Camp for a matchday 20 fixture in France Ligue 2. The last meeting on 31st July 2021 ended in a Rodez 1-0 win. Both sides have met twelve times in the most recent seasons. Pau has won 4 matches, and Rodez triumphed in 6. Recent outings average 1.92 goals, while both teams score 42% of the time.
Pau's latest fixture against Niort ended in an away 3-0 loss. I expected more from Pau. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points.
Rodez's recent game against Bastia ended in a home 0-0 draw. The strikers had plenty of good goal-scoring opportunities. They should have done better to earn their team three points instead of one.
Since the start of the season, Pau is more dominant at home. They have seven wins out of 11 games on home soil. Pau's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 55% of home games.
Rodez has picked up 6 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Rodez wins 1.25 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Rodez kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.
It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Draw or Rodez.
Still, I expect a close game and don't think that we will see a lot of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.15 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 30% of Pau's home and Rodez's away games. My prediction is Under 2.5 Goals.
Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 40% of Pau's home and Rodez's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
