France Ligue 2 – Red Star v Auxerre Preview (24/8/18)

Match Preview

Red Star are finally off the mark after netting a late equaliser at Chateauroux last week (1-1). They've lost every other competitive game this season and I’m expecting them to lose again here. Auxerre should have enough quality to see them off. After a poor start AJA have bounced back with a couple of good wins and a change of team selection has served them well. I think taking them DNB in this game is an obvious pick. I’ve said before how Red Star play at a neutral venue over 50 miles from their normal home and it is definitely affecting them negatively. Both Niort and Le Havre have won at this venue so far. Over 2.25 is another bet I like for the game. Auxerre could cover this on their own but I am still concerned about potential fragility at the back. I could see Red Star hitting the back of the net, but ultimately get outscored as well.

Prediction: 1-3

Recommended bet 1 unit: Auxerre DNB @ 1.82

Recommended bet 1 unit: Over 2.25 goals @1.90
