TGIF .....


The weather in France is a bit dismal almost everywhere, with a lot of rain and some high winds around. Worst conditions are set for the middle of the day and by kick off, all of "our" matches should be played in normal November weather, but it will be a little sticky underfoot at most grounds.


Chateauroux are 3-3-0 at home and have only lost twice all season, but a lot of draws for them, seven in total, which is more than they managed in the whole of last season. Central defender Massamba Sambou (8-0-0) returns from suspension, this is timely, as fellow centre back Remi Fournier (10-0-0) misses his third straight game and Chat have conceded in both. No other problems for the hosts and on paper this looks good for them, with the visitors struggling big time.

After a solid start to the season ( unbeaten through their first six), Dijon have not won in six and goals have been a problem since the sale of Benjamin Corgnet to Lorient and this has been compounded by the injuries to strikers Gregory Thil (4-0-1) and Brice Jovial (8-3-2). Right back Abdoulaye Bamba (10-0-0) is suspended and things do not look good for the visitors. However, and there is always an however, I not not entirely trust the hosts and feel they are not as good at home as that record suggests and also that Dijon have a lot more to offer and that it is time for those front men that are getting a run in the team, Kone, Tavares and Caceres to start contributing on a more regular basis. They have a good recent record here scoring three on each of their last two league visits and posting a win on penalties here in the cup back in August, which finished 2-2 in regulation time, with Kone scoring. Dijon have also scored eight in the two most recent reverse fixtures and that will give the club and many of the players, a lot of recent and positive mental memories. I am taking the "over", I expect an improved performance from Dijon and saw a little in the away losses to Nantes and Niort, at least going forward, to offer hope. Just one clean sheet in seven for the hosts and that came in a match where they were looking for 0-0 from the outset, which will not be the case this evening.
1.25 units "Over" 2.25 goals 2.11 asian line.

Châteauroux : Millieras, Caradec - Nestor, Sambou, Afougou, Neves, Beauvue, Guerriero, Hautcœur, Tainmont, Jeannot, Essombé, Fauque, De Freitas, Orinel, Allart. 
Dijon : Reynet, Tchagouni - Paulle, Rémy, O. Cissé, Varrault, Souprayen, Baradji, Mollet, Sankharé, Guerbert, Caceres, F. Bérenguer, Tavares, Paye, K. Koné.
I really like the Ligue 2 fixtures today, this is one of our best leagues and I have sent subscribers previews of four other games ( five in total) and they will also get a follow up email looking at the overnight action later this afternoon.
If you like the GOWI match previews, I really urge you to consider subscribing to the email service, it is not "cheap", but the daily rate is low and it offers terrific value for money and if you are not winning on a regular basis, it will really help your gambling portfolio.
Send me an email at to get full details of the service and news of a special offer.

Good Luck.
