Gazelec Ajaccio Prediction

Gazelec Ajaccio occupy 14th place in Ligue 2 but have pulled themselves away from the relegation zone with a 1-0 win away at Chateauroux which has given them a valuable five point cushion ahead of third from bottom club Valenciennes who sit in the relegation play-off spot.

Gazelec had previously gone without a league win from their previous four matches which included defeats to Metz, Niort and Sochaux along with a draw against Le Havre, and recent form on home turf has been patchy to say the least in recent weeks.

The hosts have managed just one win from their last six matches at their Stade Ange Casanova which was a 2-1 win over Troyes, but losses to Nancy, Orleans, Beziers and Niort have kept Gazelec firmly placed in the bottom half of Ligue 2.

Gazelec possess a pretty ordinary home record of 3-2-5 9/12 which includes just one clean sheet and have failed to score in 4 of their 10 home matches to date. Midfielder Roye and forward Armand (4 goals each) look the most likely to score for the hosts.

Auxerre Prediction

Auxerre sit just two league positions and one point above their hosts Gazelec Ajaccio ahead of this Friday night encounter with both teams looking to lift themselves up into the top half of Ligue 2 here.

Of the two teams though, Auxerre seem the more solid and consistent in recent weeks as the visitors bring a useful seven match unbeaten run into this clash, a run that includes wins over Metz (away), Sochaux and Grenoble Foot 38, the latter being a 4-0 thrashing on home turf.

In addition, this seven match sequence has also included five clean sheets as Auxerre have made themselves a solid defensive base to work from and the results are starting to flow for the away side.

This has inevitably flowed through to their results away from home where they’ve posted an overall record of 3-2-4 10/9 and to give further perspective to this record, Auxerre are unbeaten in their last four matches on their travels.

Auxerre’s goals have been shared out amongst midfielders Philippoteaux (4 goals) and Adeoti (3 goals) along with forward Merdji (3 goals).

Betting Tips Verdict

Gazelec’s home form has been inconsistent in recent weeks while Auxerre have really tightened things up at the back. This may be a low scoring match but the value appears to be with the handicap on Auxerre here.
