Both Teams to Score – Yes

When two teams who are bad at defending meet, there is always a good chance a lot of goals will be scored. Thus, the Ajaccio vs Troyes prediction in this instance is devoted to the potential of both teams scoring a goal. During the last five years, they met mostly in Ligue 2 where both resided, and the one match they played in the Top Division is this season's first game which ended in a 1-1 split. Before that match, only one out of four ended with both teams scoring a goal. However, looking at their propensity for bad defensive decisions this season, it is logical to assume that a goal on both sides of the field will occur. Ajaccio conceded 48 goals this season, the third-worst mark in the league, while nobody defends as badly as Troyes who are at 53 allowed goals for the season. In their last five league matches looking at the overall picture, Ajaccio had only one BTTS game while Troyes had three.

Draw

We are going here with a similar result as was the first match this season. There isn't much of a difference between these teams, they are defending badly, and they lost a double-digit number of matches. The only thing that Troyes is significantly better at revolves around efficiency, the visiting team scored 33 goals, fifteen more than Ajaccio. The home team is better when we check the number of wins, they have five compared to three by Troyes. However, Ajaccio lost 16 games to 13 of their opponent. But, as we can see on the league table, there is only a one-point difference, and both are in the relegation zone. When it comes to drawing matches this season, Troyes has seven while Ajaccio is at three. In their h2h matchups, two out of their last ten games ended with them splitting points.

Preview, Team News, and Ajaccio vs Troyes Lineups

Ajaccio

The home team lost four out of their past five matches, they are second from bottom in the league rankings, but after all, they have been through this season, there is still a good chance they can come out of it alive and well when it comes to their Ligue 1 status. There are several injury problems, however, for the team: Youcef Belaili, Thomas Mangani, Yoann Touzghar, Youssouf Kone, and Mathieu Coutadeur are out of the match.

Provisional lineup: Leroy, Youssouf, Gonzalez, Avinel, Alphonse, Vidal, Hamouma, Marchetti, Barreto, Bayala, Soumano.

Troyes

Troyes has one of the strangest goal differences you can find in Europe's top leagues. Somehow with the worst defense in the league, they are surprisingly efficient on the other side of the field scoring 33 goals. That is, by far, the most out of all the teams under the relegation line. Troyes has Florian Tardieu and Karim Azamoum injured, while Papa Ndiaga Yade is out through suspension.

Provisional lineup: Gallon, Salmier, Rami, Palmer-Brown, Larouci, Chavalerin, Agoume, T. Balde, Odobert, Rony Lopes, M. Balde.
