After a decent run which saw them edge a little clear of the drop zone, consecutive road defeats have left Chateauroux on 37 points with three other teams, all looking to avoid being one of the bottom three. They have the easiest looking fixtures of any other club battling for survival and probably two home wins, will see them to safety, certainly 43 points is seen as the "magic number" and that is the exact number that Clermont have at present. The visitors are not yet 100% safe themselves, but in addition to the six points have eight teams below them in the table, so their need is nowhere near as great.
Chat are unbetaen at home in five starts, have no injury concerns and if they can approach the level they hit in defeating Brest 5-1 in their last home game, should ease to victory.

DIJON - ANGERS
This is a "friendly", both clubs are on 48 points, exactly 11 clear of both promotion and relegation, with three rounds to play, so only pride to play for. We can normally expect such games to be open affairs and produce goals, Dijon's last five have all contained two or more, with four ending "over". Angers are without a win, have not kept a cleansheet in 14 starts and have a lot of defensive problems this evening. The two met at exactly this stage last season, that match produced four goals and I feel something similar is on the cards tonight.
6.5 points "over" 2.25 goals 1.99 asian line.
