Caen vs AC Ajaccio: top free betting tips
To retain their winning sequence in Ligue 2, Cean faces the challenge of Ligue 1 relegated side Ajaccio in the next league fixture on Saturday, 26 August. The Bears make an appearance at Stade Michel d'Ornano after dropping two points against Bordeaux.
Match result prediction: Caen to win
Caen has got an ideal start to Ligue 2 with three consecutive victories. Meanwhile, Ajaccio has registered only one victory in that duration, along with two draws. Caen has also registered three victories in the previous five league outings at Stade Michel d'Ornano. Adding more to this, the Viking have also won three of the last five H2H meetings against Ajaccio in front of the home crowd. Therefore, we set Caen as our favourite to take three points in this game.
Both teams to score prediction: No
None of the last five H2H meetings of these two teams at Stade Michel d'Ornano have witnessed BTTS outcomes, with Caen keeping four clean sheets. The Vikings have also won all of their recent three consecutive victories by restricting the opposition from scoring. On the other hand, Ajaccio has been unable to find the back of the net in three of their recent four league games away from Stade Francois Coty. Considering these facts, we expect only Caen to be able to score in this fixture.
Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Caen
Caen has got all three league victories previously with the same scoreline of 2-0. The Vikings have also rattled the net more than once in four of the recent five league outings at Stade Michel d'Ornano. Furthermore, Ajaccio has conceded two or more goals in four of the previous five competitive fixtures away from Stade Francois Coty. Based on these statistics, we predict Caen to record a 2-0 margin before the final whistle of this encounter.

Alexandre Mendy opened the scoring in the second half with the penalty and Ali Al-Abdi extended the lead with his stoppage-time goal. Manager Jean-Marc Furlan is also fortunate to have a fully healthy squad to retain the team’s winning momentum.
AC Ajaccio preview
