France Ligue 2 – Ajaccio v Sochaux Preview (10/8/18)

Match Preview

Sochaux have lost both of their opening two games 0-1 and its clear the team need more minutes on the field in order to gel with each other. Les Lionceaux signed a lot of new guys during the summer and it was always going to take time for things to settle down. They haven’t been that bad but nothing is really clicking at the moment, especially from a defensive point of view. A trip to Corsica is never easy, especially as on this occasion Ajaccio fans are allowed inside the stadium. They were banned from the opening game of the season vs Troyes so should be extra vocal tonight in their support. Ajaccio haven’t looked that great either this season and they seem slightly off in a physical way. But nevertheless ACA ground out a tough 1-0 last week at Beziers and are more battle hardened than Sochaux. I’m happy to back Ajaccio on a -0.25 handicap. I think in all reality this line should be -0.5 or -0.75 so plenty of value offered. This will probably be a tight and low scoring game but Ajaccio nick it something like 1-0 in my opinion.

Prediction: 1-0

Recommended bet 1 unit: Ajaccio -0.25 @1.83
