Ajaccio vs Monaco: prediction for the Ligue 1 match
On March 19, Ajaccio and Monaco will face each other in Matchday 28 of Ligue 1. Monegasques had no victories in three latest matches. Can hosts get a victory? The answer is in our prediction.
Ajaccio are facing a serious threat of relegation from Ligue 1. With 21 points, club is at the 18th position in the standings. But the Bears still have a hope for salvation - team is only three points away from the 15th spot. But looking at team's recent results, chances are not so high.
Olivier Pantaloni's men earned only one victory in five latest matches - they beat Troyes by a 2:1 score. Other four matches, including a game against Montpellier (0:1), were lost by the club.
Monaco suffered a few setbacks, which might eventually leave them without a Champions League spot. Team failed to get victories in three latest matches - visitors lost to Nice (0:3) and Reims (0:1), and drew to Troyes (2:2). Monegasques are currently at the 4th position with 51 points. Philippe Clement's men are four points ahead of the 5th place, but it is extremely important for the Red-Whites to stop losing points.
Monaco are already three points behind 3rd-placed Lens and five points behind Marseille. Monegasques have a poor defensive record in the current season - they conceded 36 goals in 27 matches. All other Top-5 teams conceded less than 30 goals.
Ставка Correct score 0:3
Two of five latest matches of Ajaccio finished by a 3:0 score
Ставка At least one club to not score
Ajaccio scored only in one of five latest matches
Ставка A draw in the first half
Monaco failed to win the first half in four latest matches
We are expecting a high-scoring game here. Monaco are coming for three points - team needs to put an end to a three-game winless run. Monegasques don't want to get too far away from the Top-3, so Ajaccio should brace themselves for a tough encounter. The Red-Whites will probably put up a high-scoring performance. Previous head-to-head match between the opponents finished by a 7:1 score.
Our prediction - total over 2.5 goals
We are expecting a victory from Monaco in this game. Monegasques haven't been great in recent fixtures, but Ajaccio seem unable to beat anyone right now. The Bears failed to win any of recent head-to-head encounters.
Our second bet is on Monaco to win
