France Ligue 2 – Red Star v Niort Preview (27/7/18)

Match Preview

This match is being played in Beauvais, some 70kms away from Red Star’s normal ground. This will be the case all season due to their own stadium not being fit for Ligue 2 purpose. Therefore, it's fair to say that any sort of home advantage is nullified. Some new signings for each team aren’t available for this clash, notable Nicolas Douchez for Red Star and Mathieu Sans for Niort. Right back Julien Da Costa is suspended for the visitors. I don’t think either team is going to have a great season and neither look particularly good right now. It’s the sort of match anything could happen in, so I will tentatively predict a draw. Red Star are probably a bit short in terms of odds but there is no way I’d want to get involved with this fixture.

Prediction: 1-1

Recommended bet: None
