Sochaux - Red Star
Sochaux was a team of contrasts so far. After a good start of the season with no defeat in first 9 rounds, Sochaux lost 3 times in following 5 games and the teams seemed to be, again, out of the promotion battle. But with a series of 4 games with no defeats, but with 3 wins, Sochaux is back on track being now on 5th spot, 5 points behind the leader Brest. Must note also they had poor results against lower ranked teams (0-0 against Orleans and Auxerre and barely beat Tours 2-1 with a goal scored in 93 minutes) but good results against top teams, without losing against top 4 teams (2-2 against Brest, 3-1 against Troyes, 1-1 against Reims and 1-0 against Lens). Sochaux can be a bit tired here, keeping in mind they played in Coup de la Ligue and knocking out after penalties Ligue 1 outfit Marseille (1-1 in 90 mins with Sao scoring the Sochaux’ goal)
After an excellent previous season, when Red Star finished near to podium, in 2016-2017 Red Star was barely a competitive team, being for the most of the time rocked in the bottom of the table. From a strong defensive team, they became a team with a shaky defense, Red Star conceding already 23 goals (10 less than entire previous season). Also they shown also too little upfront, scoring only 16 goals (similar with previous season) but this is not a big deal, being know Red Star is most of the time a low scoring team. Surprisingly they were involved in some high scoring game and perhaps another will appear so can be good option to bet over from time to time at some high odds (see previous game against Valenciennes ended 2-2). Due to this bad run, Rui Almeida was sacked Monday morning so for this game Red Star will be under Almeida’s assistant command. For this game, Keita is suspended.
Sochaux may be tired after cup game played Monday night. Red Star can take advantage of this fact and can settle for a draw (or why not a win) . Back Red Star +0.25. gl
