Sochaux vs AC Ajaccio
France – Ligue 2
Date: Friday, 18th January 2019
Kick-off at 19.00 UK/ 20.00 CET
Venue: Stade Auguste Bonal (Montbéliard).
The Bear has taken a huge downward shift in ambition and form compared to their last season. They missed out on promotion by a whisker and finished third in the table in 2017-18, and fans expected them to come back stronger in the next year. But it has been a letdown from the part of the players, as performances have been bleak and uninspiring. Passionate followers eagerly look into this tie, if some changes will be made.
Omar Daf’s men have avoided repercussions so far for their poor form, but it‘s high time that they stop counting on their luck. The league is past its halfway mark, and if the group needs something positive out of their season-long hard work, they need to start getting results now.

Sochaux vs AC Ajaccio Prediction
After poor runs all through the final stage of last year, both teams look ready to welcome 2019 with some positive vibes. L’ours had a run of nine consecutive winless games, at home, in last two months, while the hosts for this tie went through four straight away losses.
But after the ordeals, they both recorded two tough wins, and look to this game if they can keep the momentum going. I infer that we can see another hard-fought match, where both teams will find the back of the net.
Les Lionceaux has done so in their last two home-ties, and Olivier Pantaloni’s men did so in their last four overall games in a row.
