Lille to Win-to-Nil

This Lille vs Ajaccio prediction is all about the home team taking the expected victory. The odds for a clear-cut win are too low to make a significant investment, so angling for a match where Ajaccio doesn't score a goal is a solution, although somewhat risky. Lille managed to keep the clean sheet only once in their last five matches while Ajaccio failed to score in three games out of the same sample of matches. Lille won the last five ties against Ajaccio with the visiting team on this day failing to get on the score sheet on a couple of occasions.

Over 2.5 Goals

None of these teams has amassed a significant number of over 2.5 goals matches. Lille has 17 while their games are averaging three goals per contest, and Ajaccio had one less with an average of 2.5 goals per match. The home team had two ‘over' encounters from their past five matches while the visitors had three. However, Lille vs Ajaccio h2h matchup speaks a different tale. The last four times they met, each game went over the line of the bet in question.

Preview, Lille vs Ajaccio Lineups, and Team News

Lille

The home team was a bit lucky last week when they managed to only draw with Auxerre, but stayed fifth in Ligue 1 courtesy of teams behind them in the standings losing their matches. Rennes, Lyon, and Reims all went down and that gave Lille some encouragement. There is still a chance that the hosts can catch Monaco at the fourth spot, but they need to have a winning streak. Adam Ounas and Tiago Djalo are injured for the hosts.

Provisional lineup: Chevalier, Diakite, Fonte, Alexsandro, Ismaily, Ang. Gomes, Zhegrova, And. Gomes, Cabella, Bamba, David.

Ajaccio

The visitors are all but relegated, there is only a small chance something could change with six games remaining before the end of the season. Ajaccio lost eight of their last ten matches. Yoann Touzghar is suspended for the trip to Lille.

Provisional lineup: Leroy, Kone, Vidal, Gonzalez, Diallo, Belaili, Mangani, Marchetti, Barreto, El Idrissy, Hamouma.

Player to Watch: Jonathan David

Lille is close to securing European football next season and if that happens all the praise will go toward the Canadian striker Jonathan David. The 23-year-old has been playing the season of his career thus far scoring 21 goals in Ligue 1 and assisting on four occasions. His great year is even more impressive considering that he was also a part of the Canadian World Cup squad, so being active for the past nine months hasn't been easy.
