Red Star vs Chateauroux
France – Ligue 2
Date: Friday, 25th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Stadion Pierre Brisson (Beauvais).
The second oldest football club in France. A club with such great tradition and history. Still, their current status is not that any football fan would love to see.
Red Star secured a trip upwards after their promotion from the Championnat National last season, but seem eager to return back. As of now, they are neck-deep in the relegation zone, with no end in sight for their turmoil.
La Berri seems to love playing with the emotions of their fans. After a fantastic five weeks, the team felt the need to bring back the ecstatic fandom back to earth by an equally terrible five weeks on the trot. The group will be tuning into this game to see if they can expect the start of another good run.

Red Star vs Chateauroux Prediction
The chances for either team to budge in this crucial match is negligible. Relegation is a virtual sword hanging above the heads of either team. The risk associated with losing this game is enormous. And consequentially, the squads will play it safe and look to close their gaps first rather than find the ones on the other side.
In all probability, we will see a low-scoring game where the defense will be given the limelight. I expect the first half to end with a 0-0 scoreline. Despite the low-scoring nature, don’t expect the match to be anything less than thrilling.
Another stat going in favor of a goalless first 45 minutes is the fact that, only Nancy, the bottom-most team in the league table, has scored fewer goals than these teams.
