Red Star vs Orleans
France Ligue 2
Date: Friday 26th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Bauer (Saint-Ouen).
Red Star will be attempting to move out of the bottom three depending on other results this weekend, but this has already been a difficult return to Ligue 2 for the side.
They are in 19th place and have won just 2 games from 11 this season. Form though is decent enough because they have gone their last two games unbeaten. This is no mean feat for the club who have just a 10,000 stadium capacity. If they finish 17th this season it would be seen as some sort of success for them.
Both of Red Star’s wins have come at home where from 4 games it’s 2 wins and 2 losses. Along with Brest, Orleans have the best form in the league with 5 wins in a row. They have not conceded a single goal in almost 8 weeks and have been terrific.
Currently they are in 6th place and a win or draw would push them onto the 20 point marker after a slow first couple of weeks to the beginning of the season for them.
Orleans have won their last two games away from home and they will be very dangerous opponents for Red Star and are sure to start off as the bookmakers favourites to win this game.

Red Star vs Orleans: Prediction
Our bet here is to see Orleans get the win. They are playing great football and have much more quality than Red Star. This will be a very tough game for the home side who will also have to keep focused and keep their discipline against a very good side. Orleans will have a lot of the ball and we can expect them to create many attacking chances. Home win for us.
