Chateauroux vs Red Star (By: Alcuni)
Chateauroux - Red Star
Chateauroux looks too shy in this start of the season. In 3 games they collected only 2 points, both on the road thanks to 2 draws. In last one, some luck for them as they leveled at Valenciennes couple of minutes before the end of the game. But Valenciennes was better in almost all positions, scoring also a second goal just before the HT but dis-allowed for a thin offside position. Somehow undeserved point but more than welcome for Vasseur's boys. In Coupe they took first win of the season 1-0 versus Niort, Vasseur sending in the field almost all usual starters, Chateauroux having a small squad after all. This week they signed with Soumare ( not qualified for this game yet). Strikers Mandane and Tounkara were recovered for this game. Another important player last season Sarr is thinkig to leave the team till the end of transfer period, so..
Red Star is the single team who took 0 points in first 4 official games. They have 3 defeats in championship, losing in last game versus LeHavre 0-1 on their own pitch. Keeping in mind the value of this two teams the results is fair, but keeping in mind who the games was played this result is completely unfair. LeHavre had a single shot on goal ( is true a nice one) but was 2nd best for almost all game. Red Star had the initiative, missed a lot, being too shy upfront. Also in Coupe de la Ligue game they lost 0-1 on the road at other team in poor shape Nancy, but must mention they weren't at all interested in this game, fielding the second team ( only 2 starters in first XI). Berthier is suspended for this trip.
Will first win of the season come for Chateauroux in championship versus Red Star? Doubt it. As I said they seem too shy to me and against a team who will play an ultra-defensive game will be way to difficult. Some fatigue in both squad after Coupe de la Ligue games..so anything is possible here. Perhaps a draw in a low scoring game. gl
