Lens vs GFC Ajaccio Prediction and Match Preview

Lens vs GFC Ajaccio
France Ligue 2
Date: Monday 22nd October 2018
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Bollaert-Delelis (Lens).

The final round of Ligue 2 matches for the 11th set of games will take place on Monday when Lens and GFC Ajaccio will clash in the evening.

Given that Lens are in 2nd place they will be the favourites to win this game. They already know that Metz beat Niort 3-0 on Friday to move 4 points clear at the top and so Lens need to get victory in this game to keep the pressure up on the league leaders.

Lens are in good form having gained 11 points from their last available 15 and they have lost just 1 game all season. At home they are unbeaten with 3 wins and one draw.

GFC Ajaccio are in 14th position and with the bottom half of the league being so close they are just a point clear of the relegation zone. Form has been mixed but not good coming into this game where they have lost 2 on a bounce after defeats against Nancy and Orleans respectively.

Away from home their record is 1 win and they haven’t won on the road for over two months when they beat Auxerre.

Lens vs GFC Ajaccio: Head to Head

  • Last season Lens won this fixture 2-0.

Lens vs GFC Ajaccio: Prediction

Lens should win this game and everything seems to be in their favour. However they are being quoted at odds of 1.30 (1/3) which offers no value to us. Instead we will back them to be winning at half time.

Hopefully the Metz win will give them motivation to start the game quickly and be determined to find the back of the goal early on. This market at least offers us some value. We will also back the correct score at the final whistle.
