GFC Ajaccio vs Auxerre
France – Ligue 2.
Date: Friday, 11th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Stade Ange-Casanova (Ajaccio).
Two teams from the bottom half of the table will clash as Auxerre travel to Ajaccio on Friday.
The hosts have gathered some points recently in the league after a losing streak that finished with a draw against Le Havre. They are one of the worst defensive teams in the league conceding 28 goals from 19 matches.
A 3 game unbeaten run in all competitions ended with a defeat in Coupe de France last week. In 7 of their previous 8 competitive games, the final score had less than 2.5 goals in total.
Home form raises questions about the way Coach Hervé Della Maggiore has been preparing his tactics. His side has lost 3 of their recent 5 matches in front of their home fans. Only 1 win has been recorded in that period.
Auxerre are just a point above their opponents for Friday. Currently they have a 5 match unbeaten run in the league which has 2 wins included. Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of their last 6 competitive matches. From their recent 5 games on the road they got 2 wins and a loss in both Cup and the league. However the team from Burgundy failed to finish 3 of those matches with a clean sheet.
Only a point separates these two and a win for either side will make a significant change in the table. Thus we may see a tight competition for the 3 points at Ajaccio.
