France Ligue 2
Date: Friday 28th July 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Bauer (Saint-Ouen).
Red Star are back in Ligue 2 after getting promotion from the national leagues and the 2nd oldest team in France will want to do well in their first season back. They will take on Niort on Friday night.
Red Star have been made the favourites to win this game but the betting is very open and they are not odds on. This may come as a surprise but Red Star have tried to invest in youth and there are whispers that they have some talented players in their squad.
Niort have some more recent experience of Ligue 2 and will try to use that advantage to get something from this game. The side finished in 15th place last season just six points above the relegation zone.
