AC Ajaccio vs Troyes
France Ligue 2
Date: Friday 28th July 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francois Coty (Ajaccio).
The French Ligue 2 season kicks off this week and AC Ajaccio will be playing their first match against Troyes.
Troyes were relegated from Ligue 1 last season and this will be new territory for them. We won’t know at least until a month of games if Troyes will adapt and try to mount a challenge to get back to Ligue 1 on their first attempt. The bookmakers seem unconvinced and they are the underdogs to win this game.
As for the home side AC Ajaccio they lost out on promotion because they lost in the play offs after having a strong season and they are sure to be up there challenging in the top five and they have been made the favourites to win this game. Troyes would have had to travel a long way to play here too which could impact on their performance.
