Victory or draw for Ajaccio
We are not backing away from a win or a draw by these teams’ position in the Ligue 2 table. Rather, the current form of these teams shows a sharp contrast, with Ajaccio being the better side. We think the visitors have this game to lose. A win for Ajaccio could propel the second spot in Ligue 2, which is why we think they will put their best feet forward on matchday. The visitors have 2W, 1D and 2L in the last five games while Pau has 1W, 1D and 3L in as many games.
Ajaccio to open the scoring
We are also tipping the away team to score the first goal in this match. Ajaccio is ranked 7th on away record and has leaked only 5 goals on the road. While they have scored only 7 in six away games, Pau doesn’t look any better at home. The hosts have scored nine and conceded five goals in seven home matches so far. Based on their current form, especially their scoring record, we think Ajaccio will score the first goal in this match.
While two out of three previous meetings between these teams had more than two goals, we are backing a low scoreline in this fixture. Pau’s defensive record as well as how Ajaccio has performed away from home shows that these teams don’t concede a lot of goals. A similar trend is seen in how they score goals.
Game Preview: Ajaccio Chasing for Top Two Places
With only two points below second-placed Sochaux, Ajaccio aims to narrow the gap after this game. The visitors hope they can keep pushing for better results with nearly a quarter of the season gone. These teams have met thrice previously during which both sides bagged 1W. There was one draw in those fixtures. However, the visitors have been better than Pau at the coaching level. Ajaccio’s head coach, Olivier Pantaloni boasts 4W and 2D against Pau’s head coach, Didier Tholot. And so, the big question in this match is will the hosting coach get his first win against Pantaloni? Going by recent fixtures, this fixture is for Ajaccio to lose. The visitors have had a better run this season and come to this game with back to back 2-0 victory. On the flipside, Pau has 1W and 1L in the last two games.
