Lorient -0.25 Asian Handicap
2.05 (min. 2.00)
France - League 2
Red Star – Lorient
Red start didn’t have at all an easy schedule in this debut of the season, meeting some decent team in Ligue2 as LeHavre, Lens, Niort, GFC Ajaccio; So no wonder they are in the bottom of the table with only 4 points. For sure they deserved more points in couple of games (vs LeHavre and GFC Ajaccio) but Regis Brouard seemed not to capacitated at maximum his players. A team with many experienced players for this League, including their coach, so I am expecting Red Star not to be involved in the relegation battle. Young Kaddouri left the team, but Red Start signed with Chantome and X. Thomas, also two experimented players.
Lorient started in good fashion the actual season and maybe they will not lose their energy in the end of the season, losing once again the promotion. Hope coach M. Landreau learnt his lesson from previous season and now will know how to capacitated his players in order to finish top 2 ( perhaps on 2nd spot cause at this moment Metz seems to be unbeatable). An excellent series of 6 unbeaten games, taking 4 wins and 2 draws (versus LeHavre and AC Ajaccio – teams who played the semifinal for promotion in previous season). They loaned Sarr from Chateauroux an excellent offensive midfielder that will be a plus for the team. Left the team Selemani – who didn’t play at all due to 7 games bans from previous season. Wadja is suspended. GK Petkovic is fit again and back in the squad after a slight injury.
Red Star is not a bad team but lack of confidence in front of top teams. With Sarr in the squad I think Lorient is even powerful than before. Perhaps a new win for Cabot and co. Back Lorient -0.25 ah. gl
