Red Star vs Caen
France – Coupe de France
Date; Saturday, 5th January 2019
Kick-off at 17.00 UK/ 18.00 CET
Venue: Stadion Pierre Brisson (Beauvais).
The only thing going for Red Star is their home advantage, in their Coupe de France tie against Caen. Everything else works against their favor for the team from Beauvais.
Faruk Hadzibegic’s men are dead-last in the Ligue 2 and are definite contenders for relegation at the end of the season. They are five points deep into the zone and considering their worrying form, and that more than half of the season is over, it may already be finished for the side.
Caen is struggling, there’s no questioning the fact. But the important point is – where they are struggling. In Ligue 1. Compared to Red Star, Caen stands a class apart.

Red Star vs Caen Prediction
The Reds have not impressed or even given a glimpse of hope for their fans this season. Quite early itself they got stuck in the bottom-most of the league table and has been trying to get free ever since. The team lost seven of their last ten home-ties and failed to register at least a single goal in five of them. In their last 20 overall games, the hosts for the game, Red Star, remained winless in 15. They don’t stand a good chance against a team from Ligue 1 despite having the backing of the home crowd.
Caen will find a tough match ahead of themselves, but still, with a decent effort, they will get the win. Considering than Caen has been poor on the road all season, and has been wasteful in front of the goal, the match won’t have too many goals. I think a scoreline of 0-1 is the most probable one here.
