AC Ajaccio vs Niort
France – Ligue 2
Date: Friday, 8th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Stade François Coty (Ajaccio).
Les chamois is one of the oldest clubs in France but never won anything in this period of time. Pascal Plancque’ men are one of the well-performing units in this year’s Ligue 2. They won 9 matches and scored 25 goals in this season.
Dona Ndod has been their star-man up front, scoring 11 goals and creating another 3. They play long ball and counter-attacking football to keep the ball in the opposition half. The defensive units are little rusty some time, conceding fouls regularly in their half.
The Bears are struggling with their current form and are trying to avoid this year’s relegation. Olivier Plantaloni is trying gathering his team’s confidence back, but nothing is going their way. They have already conceded 9 losses and 1.2 goals per match this season itself. Creating chances and finishing has been an utter disappointment for the home side.

AC Ajaccio vs Niort Prediction
This will turn out to be a low-intensity battle to get something out of this game. Neither of them will over commit themselves to try and score goals. This battle will be self-protective one, as both these teams will heavily fortify their defensive half with numbers. So it is a draw written all over it.
Both teams will heavily guard their goal post. There will be a few chances created at both ends, but neither of them will take advantage of that. So goals will not be scored within the entire 90 minutes.
