Le Mans vs GFC Ajaccio
France – Ligue 2 Qualification
Date: Tuesday, 28th May 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: MMArena (Le Mans).
It’s the relegation playoffs, as the 18th placed team in Ligue 2, takes on the third-placed side of the lower division, in a two-legged tie, to have a say in their future. Ajaccio finished in the bottom tier of Ligue 2, while Le Mans is brimming with confidence due to their exemplary run in the Championnat National.
But still, do keep in mind the difference of quality between these divisions, and for sure Ajaccio had drawn the shorter end of the stick, as far as this particular stat is concerned.
As such, they also have the home advantage in the second leg and Lens will have to make maximum use of their home leg.

Le Mans vs GFC Ajaccio Prediction
The massive amounts of confidence that Mans is enjoying will surely come into play, and so will their home advantage for the tie. The team won their last five games in a row and scored two or more goals in three of it. At home, they were unbeaten in 16 of their last 20 and recorded two or more goals in four of their last five.
Meanwhile, Ajaccio is winless in their last seven matches, and their last nine on the road. Keeping in line with the trend, expect Mans to have the upper hand, but do keep a note of the respective leagues they come from.
Ajaccio has the home advantage for the second leg to look forward to, and should they record a goal here, the tie could come under their control. Since Mans has conceded at least a goal in eight of their last nine home ties, the chances of them keeping a clean sheet in this crucial tie are very low. Expect goals at either end of the pitch this Tuesday.
