Date: Friday 19th October 2018
Kick off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Francois Coty (Ajaccio).

Ligue 2 kicks off this Friday after a two week break and Ajaccio will take on Le Havre as they aim to try and kick start their failing season.

For Ajaccio it has been a tough start to the Ligue 2 season where they are in 17th place coming into this game. A recent 3-1 win over Valenciennes was supposed to change that form and then they lost their following game against Red Star by 2-0, who are below them in the league.

Ajaccio are already 15 points behind the league leaders Metz and at home they have 5 points from 15. The good news is that they have gone their last 3 games here undefeated with two draws and 1 win.

Le Havre are in 7th place and are 8 points clear of their hosts coming into this game. Form is good although just before the break they lost 3-2 at home to newly promoted Beziers and this was seen as a poor result. Away from home Le Havre have the 5th best record in the league where they have won 3 games from 5 and lost just once. This includes beating league leaders Metz.

Ajaccio vs Le Havre: Prediction

Ajaccio have been poor this season but they have also been unlucky and had they taken their chances they could be pushing for a top 10 place. They have remained solid at home.

Le Havre are the better team and have very good away form, so our bet here will be to see the away team get all three points.

On top of that, the visitors will be very defensive and look to counter on the attack and this will be a very difficult match for Ajaccio. The hosts are not the best team when it comes down to focusing and concentration which is what they will need for this game.
