Nguette’s late goal denied Sochaux all three points.
Ryad Boudebouz scored for Sochaux early on to give the home side the lead in under 10 minutes.
The hosts held that lead until the 82nd minute when Valenciennes forward Opa Nguette bagged the equaliser.
Three points would have been gratefully received for Sochaux as they trail near the bottom of the table.
As it was they had to settle for a point, which was probably the fairest result in the end.
