Pontivy Stade vs Vendee Les Herbiers: Our top betting tips

Vendee Les Herbiers might arrive into this match as the bookmakers odds-on favourites but that doesn't tell the whole story. Can Pontivy Stade stage an upset? Find out with our Pontivy Stade vs Vendee Les Herbiers match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Vendee Les Herbiers to win

We begin our predictions for this match by backing the away side, Vendee Les Herbiers, to emerge victorious. Les Herbiers have been in decent form of late having lost just one of their last 11 games. Notably, that defeat came last time out but, with that in mind, the general mood around the camp will be a very positive one. Pontivy Stade also tasted defeat last time out losing 2-1 to Pluvigner Keriolets and have won just two of their last seven league as they sit narrowly in the bottom half of the Regional 1 table. They've done terrifically well to make it to this stage of the Coupe De France but their journey – for this season at least – likely ends here.

A low scoring match awaits

Our second prediction for this match sees us backing under 2.5 goals. Les Herbiers have seen each of their last two games go south of that marker but the real evidence for a low scoring game comes from the hosts. Pontivy Stade have seen just one of their last six games break the 2.5 mark with a total goals haul of just six goals in that time. Those elements of form combined with what is likely to be a stubborn low block approach from the hosts doesn't exactly scream goals and the odds on offer give this wager real value too.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Pontivy Stade odds: 13/4 (4.25) – 24%

Draw odds: 13/5 (3.60) – 28%

Vendee Les Herbiers odds: 7/10 (1.70) – 59%

The way the bookies see this game is an interesting one. Vendee Les Herbiers, as you can see from the above, are odds on to win the match, however, the odds on off of 7/10 (1.70) are potentially on the strong side; we think there is value to be had at that price. By equal measure, the price available for the draw and Pontivy Stade to win are arguably a tad stingy. The match result isn't the only market available though. Total goals and the both teams to score market are also interesting; the bookies view is that the goals could be in short supply with both sides not likely to score.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Pontivy Stade vs Vendee Les Herbiers

Pontivy Stade

It's all well and good labelling Pontivy Stade as underdogs for this game – they are – but there is no way they arrive here thinking they cannot win; they're not facing PSG! It will, however, need a monumental effort and a perfectly executed game plan for them to get the win. We anticipate a defensive lineup with plenty of experience; Mickael Le Guevel and Tony Da Costa, who have a combined age of 72, could both start.

Predicted lineup – Ecalard (GK), Le Guevel, Rivalan, Le Sourne, Kim, Da Costa, Guehenneux, Le Bescond, Bigaut, Sandjon, Kingo

Vendee Les Herbiers

Vendee Les Herbiers will rightly see this game as a winnable tie and therefore as a golden route into the next round of the competition where bigger ties become more likely. As such, they'll be desperate to ensure there are no slip ups. We expect them to name the strongest possible XI.

Predicted lineup – Pillot (GK), Carneiro, Lavenant, Seydi, Jousselin, Lesage, Brelivet, Semedo, Matondo, Lavenant, Zobo

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced one hour prior to kick off.

Player to watch

Pontivy Stade have had a good defensive record of late and are likely to be extra cautious as they come into this game as a significant underdog. That will put pressure on Les Herbiers to find a breakthrough as the game progresses; we believe the man to deliver that breakthrough be it with a goal himself or with a moment of creativity to set up an opening for someone else on his team is Manuel Semedo. The 22-year-old winger is a former Portugal youth international and a product of the Bordeaux academy. He has three goals and three assists from 10 appearances so far this season giving him a goal contribution every 113 minutes.
