  • Key centre back Nicholas Opuku suspended 
  • Fellow defender Molla Wague rated doubtful due to injury

Ajaccio

Conclusion & Betting analysis

Here we have a meeting between the two teams who have the most amount of under 2.5 goal matches in the league this season. I am not expecting a classic but with Amiens potentially missing their normal centre back duo perhaps we should be cautious. Opoku is definitely suspended and Molla Wague might not be fit enough. Both are big units and will be missed badly, maybe Ajaccio could take advantage. Under 2 goals around the 1.85 mark isn’t the worst price actually and I’d probably take a nibble if Amiens were at full strength. This is still a 0-0 contender but I could maybe see a 1-1 draw or a tight 1-0 away victory. Ajaccio +0.25 wouldn't perhaps be the worst of bets but it would take some balls to back them on the road.

Prediction: 0-1

Recommended bet: None
