Caen form and stats

5-6-2 (win-draw-lost) are the Ligue 2 numbers at home for Caen so far this season.

The home team returns to Stade Michel d'Ornano after being equal after 90 minutes with Guingamp (placed 17th) on their last time out; the Ligue 2 game ended 2-2. Before that, Caen had a home game versus Niort which ended with a victory 1-0.

A disappointing finish for Caen in their match versus Guingamp as their 2-0 lead was destroyed and replaced with a 2-2 full time score.

There will be little rest for Caen after this match as they are travelling to Nancy for a Ligue 2 game in only three days.

The Caen fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 13 in 13 matches. Caen are not conceding a lot of goals here at Stade Michel d'Ornano in the league, averaging less than one per game. The total is 12 from 13 matches.

Paris form and stats

The visitors are W4-D4-L5 on the road this term. That's in the Ligue 2.

Ali Abdi scored in Paris's previous match, the home game against Chateauroux that ended 1-0. Ahead of that match was the away draw versus Pau that ended 1-1.

A quick return to home after this game, as Paris are hosting Dunkerque in the Ligue 2 only three days away.

Scoring goals is the main ingredient in creating success in football, and not only at home. So far Paris have scored 15 goals in 13 league games away. As opposed to that, Paris have seen the ball go into their own net 15 times on the road.
