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

Match Preview

I personally think there is some excellent value to be had on GFCA +0.25 and possibly under 2.25 goals as well. But on this occasion I’ll refrain from betting. I had a very similar situation on Monday night when I betted against Lorient but they surprised me and won 2-1 at Chateauroux. I still think Lorient are overrated but technically they might be facing a weaker team here tonight. It's never easy travelling to Corsica though and at this stage of the season GFCA look in better physical condition compared to what Chateauroux were. I think Lorient can be ‘got at’ by attacking their defence but whether or not GFCA have the weapons to do this is questionable. The tactics from their coach are likely to be negative and just keep things tight. This suited Lorient on Monday night when Chateauroux just sat back so I wouldn’t be fully confident about backing the hosts on this +0.25. I certainly think the odds are the wrong way around here though and Lorient are massively overrated by the bookies. I see it being a tight sort of fixture and low scoring, 0-0 wouldn’t surprise me.

Prediction: 0-0

Recommended bet: None
