France Ligue 2 – Auxerre v Ajaccio Preview (21/9/18)

Match Preview

I think the excuses are running out for Auxerre. There is absolutely no way that a team containing this sort of quality should have lost 5 out of 7 matches. They are massively underachieving but I can’t put my finger on what exactly is going wrong. On paper they have one of the top 3-4 teams in the league but the players simply haven't been able to gel and too many individual mistakes are being made. This match really is a battle between two teams performing well below par. Ajaccio actually find themselves in the relegation zone right now and have looked sluggish this year - perhaps a hangover from their playoff disappointment in the previous campaign. Both should improve as the season progresses but neither can be trusted right now so this is a clear no bet game. My personal feeling is that Auxerre might finally get back on track but I wouldn’t bank on it.

Prediction: 2-1

Recommended bet: None
