Today's Predictions for Angers vs Ajaccio

Can either side land a significant blow in the race for survival in this relegation six-pointer between Angers and Ajaccio on Wednesday? Read our top predictions and Ligue 1 betting tips for this week’s fixture below.

Angers Draw no Bet

Bottom club Angers have won only once at home this season and with their top flight status already hanging by a thread, they need to start picking up points soon to avoid the drop. A fixture against third last Ajaccio is a major opportunity to rekindle their survival hopes, however. The visitors have dropped points in 80% of their away fixtures in Ligue 1 since August and they conceded seven goals in their last assignment on the road at Monaco. Angers will hope to take advantage of any vulnerability in their opponent’s ranks, though a measure of caution is also advised and our first prediction sides with Angers in the draw no bet stakes.

Under 2.5 Goals

Ajaccio edged Angers out 1-0 when the teams met earlier in the campaign back in December, though the only goal of the game was converted from the penalty spot by Youcef Belaili. Though the unfortunate Angers were probably the better team overall, margins were slim in the teams’ encounter and chances are likely to be just as hard to manufacture when the sides collide in Wednesday’s rematch. As a result, we’re tipping under 2.5 goals to hit the net for the second meeting in a row between Angers and Ajaccio.

Angers vs Ajaccio Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Wednesday’s Ligue 1 meeting between Angers and Ajaccio below.

Angers

Defender Abdoulaye Bamba is out injured for Angers as are midfielders Ilyes Chetti, Ibrahim Amadou, Yahia Fofana, Ali Kalla and Ulrick Eneme-Ella. Attacker Farid El Melali is also sidelined with a rib injury until next month. Angers lost 4-0 at Brest at the weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Angers: Bernardoni – Valery, Hountondji, Blazic, Doumbia – Thioub, Mendy, Bentaleb, Abdelli – Salama, Hunou

Ajaccio

Ajaccio could be without the services of Romain Hamouma, Yoann Touzghar, Youssouf Kone, Mathieu Coutadeur, Kevin Spadanuda and Mickael Barreto this week. Ajaccio were beaten 2-0 at home by Lyon at the weekend and they remain three points adrift of safety in Ligue 1.

Predicted Lineup for Ajaccio: Sollacaro – Youssouf, Gonzalez, Avinel, Diallo – Bayala, Marchetti, Mangani, Belaili – El Idrissy, Moussiti-Oko

Player to Watch – Adrien Hunou

Adrien Hunou has chipped in with four goal contributions for Angers in Ligue 1 this season and the attacker was unlucky not to get in on the act when his team played Ajaccio just after Christmas. Honou hit the woodwork with one of his three efforts that day and the Ajaccio defence will have to be on high alert to limit the 29-year-old’s impact on Wednesday.
