AC Ajaccio vs Metz
France- Ligue 2.
Date: Friday, 25th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade François Coty (Ajaccio).

The league leaders will be in action this Friday, as they travel to meet Ajaccio in round 22 of the Ligue 2.

Ajaccio is 13th at present after 21 matches have been completed. After scoring a goal per game they conceded 5 more than what they scored till now. Currently, they are unbeaten in the last 5 league matches, of which 3 were wins on the trot. More than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of those 5 matches and both sides scored in 4 of those games across all venues.

They have a 3 match unbeaten run at home too with the latest gams being a 2-1 win against Beziers. Over 2.5 goals came in 3 of their last 5 home games and they have only one clean sheet in that spell.

Metz is continuously challenged by their nearest opponents Brest for the top spot. With just 2 points between them, a win is a must for the Maroons if they want to get back to Ligue 1. With just 14 goals given away till now, they are one of the best defensive teams in the second division. Manager Frederic Antonetti will be worried about their recent loss against Clermont at home.

A 5 match win streak ended with that loss to Clermont in the league. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 5 of their last 6 matches in all competitions. Another 4 match win streak is active for Antonetti’s team in matches on the road. All those 5 away matches had less than 2.5 goals at the full time.
