Paris FC vs GFC Ajaccio
French Ligue 2
Date: Friday, 17 May 2019
Kick-Off 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade Sebastien-Charlety (Paris).
Paris host Gazelec Ajaccio in one of the most exciting games of the final Matchday in Ligue 2 on Friday evening. Both teams need spoils for different reasons. The hosts would secure a place in the promotional play-offs with a win here, likely with a draw too as they have a better goal difference than 6th-placed Lorient by four goals.
The visitors, on the other side, desperately need points in the battle for avoiding the relegation play-offs. They are just one point above Sochaux at 18th place. Given their main relegation rivals have a much easier home fixture against the likes of Grenoble Foot, we can say Le Bistrot are in a fairly tough situation coming into the last round of the campaign.
Paris FC vs GFC Ajaccio: Head-to-head
None of past six head to head encounters between these two likes produced three or more goals.
Each of last four H2H affairs ended without a winner with as many as three goalless draws in the process.
Paris won two, drew three and lost one of six home outings against Gazelec Ajaccio.
Paris FC vs GFC Ajaccio: Prediction
The visitors have really been in poor touch lately and it is hard to predict their success at Stade Sebastien-Charlety. They lost four and drew two of last six league matches failing to find the back of the net in three along the way.
Le Bistrot are now up against the best defensive line in the entire division. Paris conceded only six goals in 18 home matches (9 wins, 8 draws and just 1 defeat in the process). They shipped just one goal in last four league fixtures and will head into this off the back of two consecutive 1-0 victories over Grenoble Foot and Red Star.
The home win has to be the main betting option, while you can also back Paris to keep a clean sheet as an alternative pick.
