Ajaccio vs Clermont Foot
France – Ligue 1
Date: Sunday, 02 October 2022
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francois Coty
Ajaccio take on Clermont Foot in the Ligue 1 on Sunday at Stade Francois Coty.
It took 8 games for Ajaccio to register their maiden win upon returning to the elite class of French football. They need more of those to climb up to a safer spot in the league standings.
Currently, the team is positioned at the bottom spot of the league table with a total of just 4 points in hand.
The problem for French manager Pantaloni, lies in his team’s defensive line which allowed two or more goals in four of the inaugural six games of the season. They have improved their defense and a clean sheet win over Brest in the previous round is an evidence for it.
Meanwhile, Clermont Foot were counted among the worst in the French top flight the past season. They were lucky to have avoided relegation to the Ligue 2 in their very first top flight run the past season.
Going on, they have started off with a demotivating 0-5 defeat against the French biggies PSG at home. Since then, they won three, drew one and lost four to bag a total of 9 points for positioning at the 11th spot in the table.

Ajaccio vs Clermont Foot Prediction
Clermont Foot have generally offered weaker performances on travels than at home lately. They are on a 3-fixture unbeaten streak on the road at the moment.
On the other hand, Ajaccio is currently having a 3-fixture losing streak at home. However, it is worth noting that Pantaloni’s men indeed have had a pretty tough schedule to begin with, featuring the clashes with Lorient, Lille and Lens.
On top of that, Ajaccio own a good head to head form against Clermont Foot in the recent history. Therefore, we expect a victory for the hosts Ajaccio this Sunday.
