FRANCE LIGUE 2
LIBOURNE - DIJON
Time is running out for Libourne and they need maximum points from this "six pointer" against a direct relegation rival. The hosts are six points from safety, with that cherished spot currently held by tonight's visitors. Given the circumstances, Dijon, who are toothless on the road, with just six goals all season, at an average of 0.4 per game, would accept and will play for, the draw.
Libourne are in decent form, especially at home, where they are unbeaten in eight and have kept four consecutive clean sheets, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, their performance levels belie their league position and this is a team I do not want to write off at present.
5.5 points Libourne -1/4 ball 2.00 asian line.
CLERMONT - MONTPELLIER
Montpellier are very much two teams, the one that never even concedes, let alone loses on home soil and the other, that struggles on the road. Away from La Mosson, Montpellier have only won once in 12 starts and that came at Dijon , who were in terrible shape at the time, they have lost their last four.
Clermont are strong at home too and have lost just once in ten. These two are of a similar overall standard and have little to play for now in the league, expect this to go to type and the sequence to continue, with the greater ambition and motivation being shown by the hosts.
5.5 points Clermont -1/4 ball 2.02 asian line.
BRESTOIS - GUINGAMP
This is a Brittany derby, between two mid table sides, who have little to play for, lying as they do, 12 and 10 points clear of the drop zone respectively. Think that this will be an open encounter, with both teams seeking the win and free of any real fear. The last three h2h meetings have all been "over", with an average of 4.0 goals per game. To be honest, I would be amazed if both did not score, but then plenty of results have astounded me recently, the two goal line and odds look very reasonable and the downside minimal.
6 points "over" 2 goals 1.91 asian line.
