AC Ajaccio vs Toulouse
French Ligue 1 Relegation Playoff
Date: Wednesday, 23 May 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Stade Francois Coty (Ajaccio)
Toulouse have finished the Ligue 1 campaign with a win, ending a three-game losing streak and finishing just a point behind Strasbourg, Caen, and Lille. They now have to secure survival through the Play-offs in a clash against Ajaccio and the trip to Stade Francois Coty will surely be crucial.
Ajaccio hope to break the party and capitalize on the rivals underwhelming campaign, after making their way over Le Havre on penalties after a 2-2 thriller in front of the home crowd. They’ve bagged a 125’ equalizer and converted all five penalties, which will surely lift their team spirits ahead of this fixture as well.
Les Pitchouns have had troubles playing on the road as well, so Ajaccio will feel that’s something to exploit as well – seeing three losses and just one draw on their last four trips. They have been scoring more goals recently, though, suffering narrower losses to Rennes and Bordeaux so it does seem the Bears will have to pick up their challenge!
AC Ajaccio vs Toulouse: Head-to-head
Ajaccio haven’t beaten Toulouse since 2012 and their Ligue 1 win at Stadium Municipal.
Toulouse have earned three wins and we’ve seen three draws in six matchups since then.
The sides haven’t met for a competitive clash since March 2014 and this should prove another very interesting contest.
AC Ajaccio vs Toulouse: Prediction
We will now stick our necks out for Toulouse to build on their recent performances and hold off the Ligue 2 rivals, going for a Draw at good-looking 3.10. We have seen them pick it up recently, especially in the attacking third and we do believe this will be enough at Stade Francois Coty.
We have seen both sides score and concede many goals recently and this does have us hoping for a real thriller on the day as well. With that in mind, we will now also back a YES on Both teams to score, which is priced at 2.00 and could prove the best way to go about the market – after seeing both sides score in all of the sides’ respective last three games and 24 goals along the way!
