Preview: Matchday 1 of Ligue 2’s 2022-23 campaign wraps up in the East of France with Sochaux hosting Paris FC at Stade Auguste Bonal. The former won two of the three meetings between the sides last term and will be looking to replicate their 2-0 victory at this venue back in September of last year.

Sochaux – Motivation high following play-off heartbreak?

Including play-offs, Sochaux would wrap up 2021-22 winning only one of their final four encounters to finish in sixth place in Ligue 2. That sole victory, however, was a 2-1 win away to Paris FC, who they host on Matchday 1 of the new term, in the play-off semi-finals. Maxime Do Couto’s 92nd minute goal seeing Les Lionceaux come from behind to defeat the capital club. Setting up a promotion showdown with AJ Auxerre.

It was a showdown they would ultimately come up short in, missing out on promotion back to Ligue 1 on account of losing a penalty shootout following a 0-0 draw in regulation time. Time will tell whether that disappointment can serve as motivation for the season ahead. Another strong season at home, losing 3 of 19 (W10 D6) at Stade Auguste Bonal in 2021-22, will surely see them in the promotion picture again.

Key Stat: Last season Caen and Le Harve, teams who finished in seventh and eighth place respectively, were the only visiting sides to net more than once against Sochaux, who recorded eight clean sheets across 19 home league games last term.

Paris FC – Capital club to pick up where they left off last season?

Just two teams – both of whom, AC Ajaccio and Toulouse, would be promoted – ended last season’s Ligue 2 campaign holding a superior record at home than Paris FC. The Parisians accrued 40 of a possible 57 points as they lost only one league game when in Paris, where they conceded on just 13 occasions in 19 games. They would earn ten fewer points on their travels, though, losing seven times outside the capital.

Nonetheless Paris FC boasted a respectable return away from home, their record of W9 D3 L7 ranking fifth-best in Ligue 2. So they are not to be taken lightly, even if; 1, they lost that aforementioned play-off semi-final to Sochaux in May, and 2, were beaten 2-0 upon last visiting Stade Auguste Bonal. They would also finish last term with a flourish, by winning four of the final six regular season games (D1 L1).

Key Stat: Paris FC would only manage one clean sheet away from home in Ligue 2 in their past 10 such fixtures, with that coming in a 1-0 win vs Rodez Aveyron – a side 17th who had modest scoring figures of 32 scored in 38 games.

Sochaux Vs Paris FC Betting Advice

If Paris FC begin the new season in a similar vein to how they finished the previous one, we should be in for an enjoyable spectacle in the East of France. The Parisians would score and concede on eight occasions across their final ten away Ligue 1 matches of 2021-22, which included trips to teams that finished first, third and sixth. They open their accounts with a trip to last term’s fifth place finishers.


Sochaux Vs Paris FC – Key Facts:

  • Five of the past eight meetings between these teams saw the team scoring first fail to go on and win the match. Sochaux would win two of the side’s three encounters in 2021-22, though, including a 2-0 win as hosts in September 2021.
  • Three of the four previous encounters between Sochaux and Paris FC saw the game’s opening goal scored inside the first ten minutes. Moreover, all of the last five Ligue 2 meetings in Sochaux produced Over 0.5 First Half Goals.
  • There were just two points splitting Sochaux, in sixth (W19 D11 L8), from Paris FC, in fifth (W20 D10 L8), at the completion of Ligue 2 last season.


That would be Sochaux, who won last season’s corresponding fixture 2-0 here at Stade Auguste Bonal. However, that remains one of just two occasions in their past eight league and cup encounters in which both teams didn’t score at least once. Sochaux would also end last season conceding in each of their final three home outings, but would only fail to score themselves in one of their final 11 home match-ups.
