The shock game of the round in Ligue 2, when 2nd spot Nancy hosting 3rd spot Red Star. While Nancy is going thru a bad period, Red Star is on the wave and can provoke a surprise here.
Playing as they did lately (at least in last 3 games), Nancy were defeated by Ajaccio, 1-2, even they opened the score earlier in the game, thanks to Dale. Actually they have in 2016 a not very good stat only 3 wins 4 draws and 2 defeats, which is to less for a promotion contender. Due to these results they are now 4 points behind 1st spot Dijon, but only 3 points more than 3rd spot Red Star. So a defeat here will bring these two teams at same number of points and will make more interesting the fight for promotion for the last 9 rounds. Some problems for Nancy as Chretien and Busin are injured and will miss here together with Coulibaly
Red Star had a much easy game than they expect, when hosting Nimes, they took a narrow win 1-0 but after an excellent game. Being not used to play at noon (I think was their first game played Saturday this season), Red Star overplayed Nimes attacking from the very first minutes and creating plenty of chances to score. But their bad luck was Nimes GK Michel who made an incredible game, saving 7-8 clear chances of goal. In the end they were so close to slip this win, when same Michel, hit the lateral post due to a corner kick in dying minute. Was a well deserved win for Red Star, without no doubt, a win who keep them in promotion battle. Boe Kane is suspended
Small problems for home team and a bad shape shown lately make me to believe they will struggle again against a team who defend well, keep the ball for long period and creating lot of chances. There are no logical reasons to settle Nancy such a huge favorite. I rather back Red Star to win but I think we will see a stalemate here, but to avoid any possible surprise I’ll choice Red Star +0.25. gl
