France Ligue 2 – GFC Ajaccio v Valenciennes Preview (28/4/17)


Match Preview

Valenciennes have done very well to win their last three games and as a result are now probably safe from relegation. They’ve put in such a big effort that it would be understandable if they dropped off the pace a little bit and relaxed somewhat. They continue to be plagued by injuries in all areas of the field which won’t help them either. GFCA have been playing well for quite a while now and should’ve arguably won all of their last six games. It’s a bit worrying how their concentration has dipped, but they have looked great going forwards and I give them the edge tonight. I’m happy to take the hosts on a bigger -0.75 handicap because I see them winning this something like 3-0 or 3-1. They are the better side right now and with VA possibly in a more relaxed mood a GFCA win is more than likely in my opinion.

Prediction: 3-0

Recommended bet 1 unit: GFC Ajaccio -0.75 @2.14 (minimum odds acceptable 1.78)
