Vannes have not won in five starts and have also got very sloppy defensively, conceding 14 goals. They were distracted by a fantastic cup run and are now probably a little tired, after a first season in Ligue 2 that exceeded all expectations. In mid table safety, they are probably already mentally lying on a beach somewhere and are ideal opponents for a team desperate for points.
Chateauroux, sitting just one point above the drop zone, fall firmly into that category. They are scapping to retain their status and have performed at a high level (compared to what went before) for seven matches now, we have discussed them a couple of times recently. The goals have also started to flow, with nine in their last two starts, including four away to sedan, who held runaway leaders Lens last night. Chat cannot ease off, with a six pointer at basement club Nimes on Friday, so really need something from tonight and , for the time being, an away game at Vannes is about as good as it gets on the road in Ligue 2.
5.5 points Chateauroux +1/4 ball 1.80 asian line.
