Tip Reasoning

  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in four of Le Havre’s last six games, including back-to-back 0-0 draws with Rodez Aveyron and Niort.
  • Less than three goals have also been netted in all of Bastia’s last four games.
  • Both of these teams average less than one goal per game this season.

Le Havre looking to avoid another bore draw

Le Havre have recorded back-to-back 0-0 draws against Rodez Aveyron and Niort as they struggle to find the necessary firepower to gatecrash the play-off places. Le Havre have scored just 22 goals in 23 league games this term, a record worse than all but six of the 20 teams which make up the French second tier, and thus look unlikely to mount a late promotion push.

On Monday night, they host another goal-shy outfit in Bastia, who have only scored 21 goals in their own 23 league outings. While the Corsican outfit have struggled when travelling to the French mainland, losing eight of their 11 away games, they have been solid enough to avoid being sucked into the relegation places, losing just one of their last six league games but only posting one win.

It’s fair to say, then, that goals are not exactly anticipated when the two teams meet in Normandy. Under three goals have been scored in four of the home side’s last six matches, and in all of Bastia’s last four.

Draw specialists can produce another drab stalemate

With both outfits averaging less than a goal per game in league action this campaign, under 2.5 goals looks to be a banker. However, the dreadfully short price around that bet means punters should look to find value by backing the draw.

No Ligue 2 team has posted more draws than the 11 recorded by Le Havre this season, three of which have come in their last three outings. Meanwhile, Bastia have drawn 10 league games of their own, including four of their last six.

Keeping the 0-0 and 1-1 draws in play then, could offer great value, and 1-1 could prove to be a decent value correct score bet.
