AC Ajaccio vs Rodez: Top Free Betting Tips

Relegated from Ligue 1, AC Ajaccio play their first game in the French second division against Rodez on Saturday, 5 August. Both sides enter this game after featuring a winning momentum in the preseason campaign.

Match Result Prediction: AC Ajaccio to Win

AC Ajaccio has won only one of the previous five league outings while suffering three defeats. However, they have been exceptional against Rodez by winning all five H2Hs since 2019. Adding more to this, the Blood and Gols have also emerged victorious in only one of the last five competitive fixtures, losing in two of them. Therefore, we set Ajaccio as our favourite to have the upper hand in this game.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: No

Four of the previous five H2Hs of these teams have finished with only Ajaccio on the scoring side. Rodez has also failed to find the back of the net in two of the last five road fixtures in Ligue 2. Meanwhile, the Bears arranged three clean sheets in the previous four Ligue 1 matches at Stade Francois Coty. AC Ajaccio also ended their streak of remaining goalless in the last game of the French First Division. Based on the H2Hs and current defensive form, we predict Ajaccio are strong enough to restrict Rodez from scoring in this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to AC Ajaccio

In the five H2Hs against Rodez, Ajaccio has confirmed three 1-0 victories. The Bears’ offensive form has also been critical as they have not scored more than once in any of the league home games in 2023. On the other hand, Rodez has also conceded just one goal per game in three of the previous five road fixtures in Ligue 2, keeping two clean sheets. Therefore, we believe to see a narrow 1-0 margin for Ajaccio in this game.
