France Ligue 2 – Ajaccio v Troyes Preview (27/7/18)

Match Preview

Normally, I would be a big fan of backing Ajaccio at home but this is one of the rare times when I fancy them to lose. ACA are missing a couple of players, including new midfield signing Aliou Dembele, but Mathieu Coutadeur is suspended which isn’t great news. Even worse, their manager Olivier Pantaloni is serving a touchline ban and the club itself are having to play the match behind closed doors with no fans. This is an excellent opportunity for Troyes to strike but in terms of stats I don’t think there’s any great value to be had. The bookies have adjusted well with their lines and I will leave this alone. I like Troyes here though and they seem to be heading into the new season in good shape.

Prediction:  1-2

Recommended bet: None
