Will Casanova's men digest the disillusionment of last year? Can Nimes and Reims create surprise? What bets to try? Wincomparator tells you everything!

The teams to follow

Never had Ligue 2 been as breathless as the previous season. With an incredible final and full of suspense, it was finally Strasbourg and Amiens who managed to get into the elite league. Thierry Laurey's men made a magnificent run and managed to finish a long way ahead of their direct pursuers to make sure to climb in Ligue 1. Behind, Amiens stung second place in Lens's nose and beard. After only one season to evolve in Ligue 2, the Picards continue their exceptional ascent and will rub themselves with the best in this edition 2017/2018. Finally, Troyes, winning his play-offs against Lorient, will join these two teams in Ligue 1 to try to look good.

This year, Lens will have the free field to try to go back in Ligue 1. The men of Alain Casanova have let pass their chance last year and will have to raise their level of play to find the elite and not to repeat the errors committed In 2016/2017. Behind the Brest club is also expected to play the leading roles in Ligue 2. In the previous year, the Stade Brestois had finished at a good 5th place and had offered nice performances. This year, the men of Jean-Marc Furlan will leave with the label of favourites and will have to assume this status. Finally, Nîmes could also play the spoils in the race to climb. Given the game played last year, there is no doubt that the Crocodiles will have a say in this championship.

It will also be necessary to have an attentive eye on Lorient who remains the main unknown. The Bretons could dominate this championship given what they showed last year at the end of the season. Despite their defeats against Troyes, the Hake remain big and will want to find the Ligue 1 as soon as possible. Beware of Lorient this season because they a wounded beast that was touched in their pride.

How they have performed up until now

For the fight to maintain, we will have a close look at several formations that seemed to be in great difficulty last year. One thinks in particular Tours and Auxerre who never knew how to find the solution to go back to the classification. These teams are sorely lacking in stability either in their results or in their game plan. The year we were able to see that these two formations were really both defensively and offensive, and they will have to propose something else to stay in an increasingly dense championship. Finally, Orleans, who flirted with relegation in play-offs last season against Paris FC, will soon have to raise his head to hope for a hypothetical hold. The Orleans will not be able to repeat the same mistakes as last year under penalty of evolving in the lower championship in 2018/2019.

The statistics

The main statistic to know for Ligue 2 is to know that the draw is king! To be clear, 11.31% of the matches last season ended on the score of 0-0. Better still, 14.21% of the matches ended on a score of 1-1. In other words, the matches of Ligue 2 do not give priority to large wins. It is the 1-0 that returns most often with only 9.74% of the matches that end on this result. Do not hesitate to bet on a match to draw when betting on Ligue 2.
