Top Bets and Predictions for Ajaccio vs Auxerre

Two of the league strugglers are meeting in one of their last opportunities to give themselves a chance in staving off relegation.

Check out the latest French Ligue predictions at our dedicated Ligue 1 betting tips page.

Under 1.5 Goals

This pick seems like a risky proposition for this Ajaccio vs Auxerre prediction, but the reasoning is sound. Both of these teams have been notoriously bad at scoring this season with Ajaccio recording 21 goals which is the lowest mark in the league, and Auxerre only slightly better at 24 goals. When it comes to this kind of a pick, under 1.5 goals is not a common sighting as we can by the stats from both teams. However, they are within the parameters of clubs that had the most matches with fewer than two goals scored. Ajaccio had nine of those games while Auxerre is at eight matches. Looking at their h2h record, we see a different story. From their past four games, three of them ended without any goals while the last one, or the first match between them this season ended with a 1-0 Auxerre win.

Draw

Once again, the key for this Ajaccio vs Auxerre pick is the h2h record. Three out of their last four matches when they were facing each other ended with a goalless draw. This is especially important in this case because they both have a huge stake in this matchup. They are both in the relegation zone, however, Auxerre trails Strasbourg, which is the first team outside the danger line, on goal difference while Ajaccio has a five-point disadvantage. A counterargument for this pick is the fact that Ajaccio only had three draws this season which is by far the lowest number in the league. Auxerre had eight of those games including two in their last five.

Ajaccio vs Auxerre Lineups, Team Information, and Preview

Ajaccio

Even though there are still a lot of games to be played, it seems that Ajaccio's season has gone off the rails. With four straight losses and the worst attack in the league, this team seems to be destined for relegation. Romain Hamouma and Vincent Marchetti are injured while Cyrille Bayala and Mohamed Youssouf will miss the match this weekend because of suspension.

Probable lineup: Leroy, Alphonse, Mayembo, Vidal, Kone, Nouri, Barreto, Coutadeur, Belaili, El Idrissy, Soumano.

Auxerre

In contrast to their opponents, Auxerre still has a reasonable chance of surviving the season in Ligue 1. They are trailing Strasbourg who are outside the relegation zone line on goal difference, and at this point of the season with nine matches to go, that is still not a relevant situation, but it could become one soon as we draw near to the end of the season. Auxerre has Elisha Owusu and Theo Pellenard out of the match through injury.

Probable lineup: Radu, Toure, Jubal, Raveloson, Mensah, Massengo, Toure, Zedadka, Dembele, Hein, Abline.

Player to Watch: Youcef Belaili

The 31-year-old Algeria international hasn't played in every game, nor has he started every match for Ajaccio, but is tied for the best scorer in the team with six goals and also takes the cake as the leading creator of goals with three assists.
