Ajaccio vs Reims Predictions and Free Tips from our expert tipsters when the teams go head-to-head in Ligue 1 on Wednesday, 11 January 2023.

The recently-promoted Ajaccio are yet to find footing in the Ligue 1. They are barely staying above the relegation cut-off, and have managed just four wins in total so far this league season. Three of these four wins came against teams currently placed 17th or below in the table.

Meanwhile, Reims are one of the most consistent teams in the league at the moment. They are one of the only three teams in the competition to have remained unbeaten in the past five match-days.

Ajaccio vs Reims Head-to-head stats

Reims recorded a 1-0 win in the latest encounter between the two teams. In fact, they have a 100% winning record in every such clash in the past seven years, and also kept clean sheets in all of these fixtures.

It is also to be noted that in the course of the past 11 years, only once have they failed to find the back of the net against this opponent.

Who will win the match between Ajaccio and Reims?

Reims are currently placed 10th in the table. The 9th placed Clermont have a surplus of one point, and are pitted against the fourth-placed Rennes next. This is an opportunity for Reims to climb higher in the table.

They are high in confidence after winning 3-1 against the fourth-placed Rennes just a week before, and holding former champions Lille to a 1-1 draw.

Meanwhile, Ajaccio exclusively have performed well against relegation-threatened squads. They are no match for their counterparts this Wednesday.

How many goals will be scored in the match?

Reims scored an impressive 11 goals from their three games after the World Cup break. They have also failed to score against this rival just once in the past decade.

Couple that with the weak defense of the hosts, and we can expect quite a high-scoring affair this game week.

Will Both Teams Score in the match?

Consistency has been the key for Reims so far this season in the Ligue 1. They have a disciplined defense, and they now have an opportunity to climb higher into the top half of the table.

On top of that they have not conceded a single goal against this rival in the past seven years. It is a doubt if Ajaccio will be able to find the back of the net at the Stade Francois.

Ajaccio vs Reims Prediction
