France Ligue 2 – GFC Ajaccio v Amiens Preview (16/9/16)


GFC Ajaccio preview

  • Lost for the first time this season when they went down 0-2 at Reims last week.
  • Goalscoring and finishing chances again the big issue and they've only netted 5 times in 6 games.
  • Drawn all three home matches so far.
  • Important midfielder Jerome Lemoigne injured along with striker Robert Maah.

Amiens preview

  • Shock ligue leaders after winning four games in a row!
  • Pre season favourites for relegation have been surprising everyone.
  • Weak team on paper but clearly have to be respected on current form.
  • Have demonstrated strength in all areas of the field and aren't just relying on one discipline or luck for their wins.

Conclusion & betting analysis

  • GFC are deserving favourites considering they are usually very strong on their island home.
  • Amiens' bubble logically has to burst soon, but when exactly?
  • Right now, you'd have to be brave to bet against them.
  • Odds look about fair considering all aspects.
  • GFC would've been about 1.60 on the opening day of the season, which shows just how much Amiens have grown.
  • Gut feeling for a home win but I'm happy to leave this match alone.

Prediction: 1-0

Recommended bet: None
